Fresh vegetables are vital sources of minerals, vitamins, and dietary fibers. Both contain nutritionally important compounds, such as vitamins. Vegetables contribute over 90% of dietary vitamin C. Green vegetables are a rich source of vitamin A. Similarly, niacin and folic acid are present in significant quantity. Because green vegetables are perishable products with high metabolic activity during the postharvest period, proper postharvest handling plays an important role in increasing their availability.
