Hybrid Herbs Dragon Fruit Pink Pitaya Powder Freeze Dried Extract: Perfect to add to smoothie bowls and foods.
What is Dragon Fruit?
Dragon fruit, also known as pitaya, is a species of cactaceae which grows in subtropical regions throughout Asia, Central America and South America. It’s an unusual looking fruit which features bright pink, textured skin, and a fleshy edible interior. Dragon fruit has a naturally sweet, delicious flavour which has hints of pear, kiwi, melon and berry. The most common type of dragon fruit has white flesh, however, it’s the magenta-flesh dragon fruit which is used to make this pink superfood powder.
Health Benefits of Dragon Fruit Powder?
Dragon fruit is loaded with nutritious compounds including Vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and Omega 3 essential fatty acids which are stored in the seeds. It’s also low in calories (a whole dragon fruit only contains around 60 calories), so you can pile it into your culinary creations. Dragon fruits are rich in dietary fibre which plays an important role in maintaining the health of the digestive system.
The high antioxidant levels in dragon fruit are certainly giving the much-loved acai berry a run for its money. Antioxidants have been scientifically proven to help to rid the body of harmful free radicals and promote overall well-being. Dragon fruit gets its rich magenta colouring from the presence of lycopene, which is a phytochemical and carotene that also has beneficial nutritional properties.
