Organic Pink Grapefruit
Orteat’s Organic Pink Grapefruit
Exotic, tropical and with a unique taste!
It looks like an orange but it is not: it is actually a citrus fruit with the same nutritional properties and health benefits of oranges.
The Organic Pink Grapefruit has an international passport and an entirely Calabrian heart.
The Italian Organic Pink Grapefruit for online sale at Orteat comes from ‘our’ Paolo, one of our producers in Calabria. Cultivated in the unspoiled lands of the southern area of the region, where everyday our farmers work with care and attention to provide you with a genuine, chemical-free fruit. The result? An authentic and unique product that respects the seasonality and the cycles of nature.
Properties and nutritional values
Properties and nutritional values
The Grapefruit, also known as Citrus Paradisi or “Paradisiac Citrus”, has a beautiful and interesting history made of travels, discoveries and incredible adventures.
Its origin remains a mystery to this day. While on the one hand it is thought that the fruit derives from a cross between the Sweet Orange and the Pummelo, on the other hand it is claimed that the origin of the Grapefruit is completely autonomous and spontaneous. However, we can state that it geographically originated in Central America (specifically in Eastern Caribbean), while its diffusion in Italy took place around the 1960s.
It is a medium-large sized fruit with a thin yellow-orange skin and deep pink flesh. A bitter-sour flavor with a fant sweet note, mostly intended for fresh consumption or for the preparation of elaborate and particular recipes!
Let’s find out some properties of the Pink Grapefruit:
- Vitamin content: the fruit contains all the vitamins typical of citrus fruits and in particular of the orange, with which it shares both minerals and antioxidants.
- It contains natural antioxidants and antibiotics and its properties can prevent and treat diseases caused by fungal and bacterial infections
- It is made up of water, fiber and potassium, essential elements that can drain our bodies and slow down our cellular ageing.
The Pink Grapefruit is a source of countless benefits for the body, as the orange.
However, we would like to dispel one myth: it is not true that grapefruit helps you lose weight. We know that it is hard to accept but the fact that it can be mistakenly regarded as a highly slimming fruit can be dangerous to our health. The flavonoid it contains is certainly helpful in fat disposal and digestion, but this doesn’t turn the Pink Grapefruit into something that makes you intensively lose weight.
However, it has many other benefits which, when combined with a healthy diet, can promote balanced and wholesome dietary habits.
Thanks to its water content it is a very diuretic fruit that can prevent water retention; thanks to the ascorbic acid in vitamin C it is a powerful antioxidant that is able to strengthen the immune system.
