While pickles are made from cucumbers and seem like a low-calorie snack, many people wonder if they are actually good for you. Pickles are made by preserving cucumber in an acidic liquid, typically vinegar and salt, with other flavorings added.

Other vegetables and fruits can also go through the pickling process. The nutritional value of pickles includes important vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, and potassium while being low in calories, fat, and carbs.

However, due to high sodium content, pickles may not be the best snack for those with high blood pressure levels. Moderation and choosing pickles with low sodium content are recommended.
