Red cabbage contains powerful cancer-fighting nutrients called anthocyanins! Anthocyanins are a class of flavonoids (antioxidants) found in many fruits and vegetables. They are antioxidants that give a dark red, blue, or purple color to many berries, fruits, and vegetables such as blueberries, raspberries, apples, and eggplant.
