It is asparagus to 93% water to about 2% of proteins, approximately 4% are carbohydrates and only 0.2% are fats. This asparagus is a low-calorie vegetables. However, asparagus for each person, but not necessarily healthy. People who suffer from obesity and dropsy should definitely eat asparagus because of its dehydrating effects.
