Numerous studies all over the world have shown that the kiwifruit is one of the most nutrient-rich fruits, it contains more than the papaya, orange, mango or apple and this is due to the nutrients found in its seeds.
One kiwifruit provides us, in a healthier way, with more fibre than cereal flakes as it is fat-free and does not contain refined sugars. Consequently, the kiwifruit is the best natural intestinal transit regulator.
The kiwi is an ideal fruit for people who suffer from Diabetes as, due to its low glycaemic index, it does not cause a sharp rise in blood glucose levels.
The kiwifruit’s compounds such as lutein and its high fibre content, help to prevent illnesses like colon cancer, cardiovascular problems, macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetes, constipation or diverticulitis.
The kiwi is the fruit with the highest vitamin C content. It is also rich in folate, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium and copper, which is vital for infant growth, bone strength, brain development and the immune system.
Folic acid plays an important part during pregnancy, growth or when recovering from an illness. In other foods it deteriorates with cooking but as the kiwifruit is eaten raw, all its properties are preserved.
Half a kiwifruit has approximately 65 kcal as 90% of its weight is water. These qualities make it perfect for any healthy and balanced diet.
The kiwifruit can be eaten in sandwiches, salads, with vegetables, as a fruit purée in desserts, in drinks or simply enjoyed on its own. Have you tried cutting a kiwifruit in half and eating it with a spoon?
