Fresh Water Convolvulus/ Water Spinach/Ipomoea Aquatica 200g- Imported from Thailand Weekly

Water spinach, or swamp spinach, grows abundantly in tropical regions in Southeast Asia and is used extensively in cuisine in places such as Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia. This ingredient works great in stir-fries, soups, and other dishes where a mild, green flavor would benefit a recipe.

Although it's not related to spinach, it does taste a bit like a cross between spinach and watercress. It doesn't, however, have the slightly earthy taste and bitter bite that spinach can have.

Water spinach will keep in the fridge much the way any leafy green would, in a sealed container with a damp paper towel for several days. It's best to not wash before you refrigerate the spinach, as this can make it wilt quickly. Wash it right before you intend to cook with it.

Nutrition and Benefits
Water spinach contains a fair amount of vitamins A, B6, and C, along with magnesium and fiber. The plant has been considered medicinal in Asia for hundreds of years for its laxative effects and has been studied for its use in India as a treatment for lead toxicity.
