Health Benefits of Kosher Dill Pickles?

Vitamins and Minerals

While one small Kosher dill does contain a number of vitamins and minerals the amounts are minute. The pickle does supply 16 mg of calcium, which help build bone density, 34 mg of potassium, 4 mg of phosphorus, 3 mg of magnesium and trace amounts of iron, zinc copper and manganese. Dill pickles also supply 14 mcg of vitamin K, used to produce blood clotting factors and trace amounts of B-complex vitamins as well as 3 mcg of vitamin A. One mineral found in abundance in Kosher dills is sodium, used in processing. A single pickle contains 324 mg of sodium, or around 13 percent of your recommended daily allowance of 2,300 mg. Too many dill pickles in one day could use up your entire daily allowance of sodium.

Antioxidants

Dill pickles, like other vegetables, also contain small amounts of carotenoids, brightly colored pigments such as beta-carotene and lutein that can be converted to vitamin A and may act as antioxidants. Antioxidants attack molecules called free radical which cause cellular damage that can lead to heart disease, cancer or other diseases. Lutein may help protect your eyes from chronic diseases by filtering blue light from the retina. While dill pickles don’t contain large amounts of these nutrients, they can comprise a small part of a healthy diet.

Fiber

Like other vegetables, pickles are a good source of dietary fiber. While the amount per pickle is small, just 0.4 g per pickle, every bit counts. The average American consumes just 15 g of fiber per day and should get at least 20 g, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. Fiber promotes regular bowel movements and also helps lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels, reducing the risks of both heart disease and diabetes.

Pickles with that?

Sandwich with spiced lard served with garlic, pickled cucumber

Why do they Serve Pickles with Sandwiches?
Order a sandwich anywhere, especially in a deli, and odds are there will be a pickle on the side.

Did you know however, that pickles were regarded as a delicacy as early as 2400 B.C.? Going that far back in history, it should come as no surprise that pickles can be traced back to the Jews, and the first Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe brought the tradition to New York as a means of cleansing the palette.

Before long, there were pickle vendors throughout the Lower East Side of Manhattan, much as there are hot dog and bagel carts in the city today. In fact, by the 1930s, in the throes of the Great Depression, some entrepreneurs became involved in something called “The Pickle Wars” as they competed to obtain monopolies for their products.

So popular have pickles become around the world that serving them as a side dish with a sandwich represents the bulk of all pickle consumption. Over time, pickles have become a standard with any sandwich, to the extent that most restaurants no longer list them on the menu. A pickle is an accepted part of the meal, and no restaurant or deli would dare serve a sandwich without is vinegary companion.
