Eggplants, also known as aubergines, belong to the nightshade family of plants and are used in many different dishes around the world. In addition to bringing a unique texture and mild flavor to recipes, eggplant brings a host of potential health benefits.
Eggplants are a nutrient-dense food, meaning they contain a good amount of vitamins, minerals and fiber in few calories.
One cup (82 grams) of raw eggplant contains the following nutrients (2):
- Calories: 20
- Carbs: 5 grams
- Fiber: 3 grams
- Protein: 1 gram
- Manganese: 10% of the RDI
- Folate: 5% of the RDI
- Potassium: 5% of the RDI
- Vitamin K: 4% of the RDI

Eggplants are high in anthocyanins, a pigment with antioxidant properties that can protect against cellular damage. They are also high in fiber and polyphenols, both of which may help reduce blood sugar levels.
