Organic Dragon Fruit (Pitaya) Powder

Dragon fruit, also known as pitaya, is an exotic looking plant belonging to the cactus family that bears attractive brightly coloured fruits. Its name comes from the green scales similar to that of a dragon which cover its smooth fuchsia or dark red skin. Slicing the fruit reveals a soft, creamy white or deep red flesh dotted with hundreds of tiny edible black seeds. With a taste described as somewhere between a kiwi and a pear, Dragon fruit is processed into a mild delicious-tasting powder which can be added to many functional foods and beverages loading them with good amounts of health-promoting nutrients.

 

Dragon fruit has an impressive nutritional profile:

 

  • Due to its rich Vitamin C content, it is a potent source of antioxidants
  • It is high in flavonoids, betalains and hydroxycinnamates which support cardiovascular health and maintain good cholesterol levels
  • It is a good source of Vitamins B1, B2 and B3 essential in carbohydrate metabolism
  • It contains protein, Omega 3 and 6, as well as a storehouse of vital minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and phosphorus.
  • It is also rich in phytoalbumin 1 that may help maintain healthy blood glucose and blood pressure levels.

 

Available as Freeze Dried and Conventional.
