Mustard greens are one of the few foods high in flavonoids kaempferol, isorhamnetin, and quercetin, as well as the phenolic antioxidant ferulic acid. With respect to isorhamnetin—a flavonoid that has been of special interest in several cancer-related studies—mustard greens were shown to have the second highest concentration of this flavonoid.
