The aubergine is a vegetable belonging to the Solanaceae (nightshade) family, native to Southeast Asia, with an edible fruit from 5 to 30 cm long. It is cylindrical, oblong or elongated in shape in most cases, with a smooth, shiny skin and various colours depending on the variety.
The flesh is firm, with a spongy texture, and white.
Its energy and nutritional value is low compared with other fruits and vegetables.
It contains few vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins and minerals, and its main component by weight is water, which accounts for 92% of its composition. The most abundant mineral is potassium, with small quantities of phosphorus, calcium, magnesium and iron. It contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C and folates.
It has a medium fibre content, but this is concentrated mainly in the skin and seeds. Its calorie content is almost zero. Aubergines contain substances such as amines (serotonin and tyramine) which can cause allergic reactions and headaches in some sensitive people.
