    Quite an interesting, protective benefit! In the morning, I always dip celery and carrot sticks in Hummus. Then I have some millet, with stevia, cinnamon, raisins and coconut shreds, with almond milk…

    1. Celery can be eaten raw or cooked. Studies show that it loses very little of its nutrients when steamed. In 2011, scientists published research that examined the loss of total phenolic antioxidant nutrients from celery when blanched for 3 minutes, steamed for 10 minutes, and boiled for 10 minutes.

    Will Celery Salt have the same effects?

    1. Yes it will. Celery salt adds a hint of fresh flavor to anything you would typically sprinkle with plain salt. Try it on popcorn, potatoes, rice, cooked vegetables or soups. The combination of salt and celery seed enhances bland foods in need of not only salt, but subtle, tangy flavor.
