Radicchio belongs to the Asteraceae family alongside dandelions and other chicory vegetables like Belgian endive. Though it looks similar to red or purple cabbage, radicchio has a distinct bitter or spicy taste, which becomes less pungent if cooked.
 

Radicchio nutrition
Chicories are rich in cichoric acid, a compound that helps your cells soak up glucose from your bloodstream. When your body uses glucose more efficiently, you're less likely to develop insulin resistance, which, if left unchecked, can lead to diabetes.
