White radish or daikon is an excellent source of potassium, folate, vitamin C and also magnesium. Besides it is believed to stimulate appetite, treat liver and gallbladder problems, and improves bowel movement. It is also good for sore throat, digestion and expel phlegm . However, a word of caution. Chinese believe that you are not supposed to take white radish if you are on medication or herbal tonic as white radish neutralises the efficacy of any medicine or health tonics. So whatever health supplement you take would go down the drain!
Here is a common and simple white radish soup that we used to cook. It is common to add dried cuttlefish to the soup. However, I prefer a simple and healthier soup minus the dried cuttlefish.
