Rocket (Arugula, Rucola, Salad Rocket)

 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Rocket (Arugula, Rucola, Salad Rocket)
  • Latin Name: Eruca sativa, Eruca vesicaria
  • Family Name: Brassicaceae

Although not toxic, this is a brassica and contains goitrogens which, in quantity, could contribute to the formation of kidney and bladder stones, so feed in moderation.

Please be aware that two or more goitrogenic plants should not be fed in conjunction with each other, and the sum total of goitrogenic foods should not exceed the guideline for a single plant of 'in moderation' (amber-green) or 'sparingly' (amber-red).  This will ensure that goitrogenic consumption stays within safe limits.
