While radishes may not be the most popular vegetable, they are certainly one of the healthiest and should be included in your diet. They are packed with nutrients and provide many health benefits.

They are low in calories and packed with vitamins, such as vitamins E, A, C, B6 and K. They are also rich in antioxidants. Their high levels of water can help keep you hydrated and keep your skin healthy. They are also packed with fibre, which helps with digestion and to manage blood sugar levels, and they are a good source of anthocyanins, which helps to keep a healthy heart.

But what happens when you pickle them? Do they lose their benefits? The short answer is no. They are still good for you, whether you have them raw in your salads, sandwiches or as a side dish, or pickled.

It is believed that pickled vegetables are not as healthy as fresh vegetables, but this is not necessarily true. Nowadays, pickled produce is a popular way to prolong shelf life and give a tangy taste to our favourite veggies. They are just as nutritious as fresh vegetables.

That being said, it is worth noting that the pickling process does use a lot of salt and sugar. It is important to keep this in mind and, just like everything else, eat pickled radishes in moderation.

M&P Engineering is a leading specialist in the design and manufacture of food processing equipment including their world-famous onion peeling machine. 

The onion processing equipment uses a self-adjusting assembly of floating knives to top, tail and peel onions from 45mm to 115mm diameter. The onion peeler also uses air compressors to remove the outer layers of onion peel, helping to keep optimum appearance of the final product.

Based on the successful design of the M&P Onion Peeler, the M&P Radish Top & Tailer is tailored for optimum efficiency and reliability.

This innovative piece of equipment tops and tails the radish, at a rate of up to 100 per minute. The top and tail knives of the machine float to adjust position to the size of the radish, reducing waste and allowing operation on a wide range of radish sizes and shapes.

Because of the manual adjustment of the top and tail knives, no change of parts is required for the M&P Top and Tailer.

Benefits of the M&P Top & Tailer include: Separate discharge points for top & tailed radish and waste; low labour requirement; easy to maintain; simplicity of design and easy access for cleaning ensures minimum downtime.
