Health Benefits

Although chives are often used in small quantities as a garnish, the promising health benefits of these alliums suggest adding them into your diet more often. Here are just a few of the many health benefits of chives. Several studies have been produced which suggest that alliums, including chives, could help prevent or fight against cancer. Certain compounds found in chives, including sulfur, can deter cancerous cells from growing or spreading throughout the body. Chives are packed with Vitamin K, a critical component in bone density. Chives contain both choline and folate. Individually, each of these components is linked to improving memory functions.


Nutritional Information

Because chives are so often used as a garnish, rather than eaten in large amounts, nutrients per serving are calculated based on one tablespoon of chives. That single tablespoon still contains: 


  • 3% Daily Value Vitamin A
  • 3% Daily Value Vitamin C


Other nutrients, including choline and folate, are present in smaller amounts. However, if you use chives in place of green onions in recipes, you'll see the benefit of these other nutritional compounds.
