Celery is a plant that is considered as a vegetable. In cooking, the leaves and stalks of this plant are used. This low calorie, crispy and crunchy vegetable must be included in the meals to add flavor and improve presentation. The celery leaves have anti-inflammatory health benefits. These can be steamed with other vegetables; the antioxidants present in the leaves like furanocoumarins, flavonoids, vitamin C and dihydrostilbenoids, will be retained and will work to protect people against undesired oxidative damage to blood vessels, cells and organ systems. The loss of antioxidants will occur if the celery is either boiled or blanched.
