I love the sweet/tang of the orange ones I have eaten; they are so refreshing.
Health benefits of passion fruit
rich source of
antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and fiber.
Lots of fiber (27% per 100g)
vitamin C - reduces inflammation in the body, and wards off colds & flu
vitamin A, combined with flavonoid antioxidants such as
β-carotene and cryptoxanthin-β are key to good eyesight
Potassium - helps regulate heart
rate and blood pressure.
- good source of minerals. Iron, copper, magnesium and phosphorus are present in adequate amounts in the fruit.
All that, annnd it's delicious! Even if you haven't eaten the fruit itself, you'd probably know the taste, since it's popular in ice creams, gum, candy, desserts, etc. All those good bad things. Best to just cut the top off the fruit with a paring knife, grab a spoon and dig in.
