Pickles, are they a good source of nutrition?

Q. Pickles, are they a good source of nutrition?

 

A. Pickles are cucumbers that have been pickled in salt and vinegar. Pickles do retain most of the vitamins, minerals and fiber that were in the cucumber and therefore do provide a bit of nutrition. However, pickles are very high in salt and sweet pickles are also high in sugar. Use pickles sparingly in your diet.
