What Is Rhubarb?

Rhubarb is a vegetable with stems that are used in many desserts due to its rich tart flavor. The leaves, however, are poisonous and should not be consumed. Rhubarb is high in Vitamin K, which is good for bone and brain health. It is also high in several B-complex vitamins, which help keep you energized, and Vitamin A, which is great for eye health and helps prevents colds!
