Cucumbers are usually more than 90% water.

Post by fhyve »

Cucumber - A fruit of the vine of the gourd family, this cool vegetable contains 40% potassium, 10% sodium, 7% calcium, 20% phosphorus and 7% choline. It is an excellent source of silicon. These vitamins and minerals contribute to skin and well as hair health.

Are these percents daily recommended value? If so, whose?
I really don't like daily recommended value because they never clarify if it is the daily recommended maximum (for things like sodium and saturated fat) or minimum (for most other things).

The title is a quote from wikipedia by the way.
