Does anyone have information on the nutrional value of stinging nettles?

(And perhaps also Goutweed?)

In cronometer, I can only find this non-raw option:

"Stinging Nettles, blanched (Northern Plains Indians) "

When I put a 100 grams of that into Cronometer, I get this in Minerals:

But in Lipids and Amino Acids, there is no information - Surely wild greens must have a certain amount of Amino Acids and fatty acids as well, right?

My guess is that wild greens should be at least as "good" as spinach, nutrition-wise :)

It's my humble opinion that they are quite incredible and a superfood.  I juice them daily, now that it is summer here in Europe.  Sorry, not stictly 80 10 10.  I hope that that's OK?  In fact there are masses of edible greens all around.  My favourite is chickweed. 

Thank you for the link, Banana Boots :) Great to have some more accurate info on the nutritional value of nettles.

And I agree, they are indeed SUPERfoods! I would really love to eliminate all my expenses on leafy greens by picking them myself - and save the money for better quality fruit.

Btw. under the nutritional profile, it says "calculated on a zero moisture basis per 100gm".

- Do you know if this means that they calculated the nutritonal value from dried nettles instead of fresh nettles?

Because, 2900 mg of calcium/100 gram seems like an extreme amount to me!
