What Is Dragon Fruit Powder?
Dragon fruit — also known as cactus fruit, pitahaya or pitaya, dragon pearl fruit, strawberry pear, moonlovers, belle of the night or night blooming cereus — is a delicious, tropical superfood that comes with a wealth of health benefits. Originating in Central America, though also grown and exported in several Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand and Vietnam, hylocereus undatus, is actually part of the cactus family, which totally makes sense because of its spiky outer layer.
Dragon fruit comes in three different types:
* red skin with red flesh
* red skin with white flesh
* yellow skin with white flesh
Depending on the shape, size, and species they can be sweet or sour and when you open it, its texture looks like that of a kiwi with the meat being filled with small black seeds that are known to improve digestion Dragon fruit is a low-calorie food that is rich in antioxidants, proteins, vitamins, fiber, and minerals and it is believed that the dragon fruit contains phytonutrients that prevent several diseases. Here is the nutritional profile of dragon fruit.
FYZ Dragon Fruit Powder is a spray-dried/ freeze-dried Dragon Fruit juice powder, retains all the vital nutrients and flavor of the fresh fruit.
Benefits of Dragon Fruit Powder
Dragon fruits contain very high amounts of dietary fiber, making them beneficial for digestive health. They also contain oligosaccharides which act as prebiotics and promote the growth of beneficial bacteria for a healthy gut. For this reason, dragon fruit is an ideal fruit to use in a breakfast bowl or morning smoothie.
Dragon fruit provides a decent dose of monounsaturated fats, which can help to lower bad cholesterol and keep the heart in good shape. The fruit also contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which play a vital role in reducing triglycerides and can help to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Another plus is that dragon fruits are a very filling fruit. Their high levels of fiber along with the protein contained in the seeds will help to keep those hunger pangs at bay. The delicious taste also helps to satisfy those sweet tooth cravings without having to reach for cakes, cookies and ice creams (unless it’s a homemade vegan pitaya ice cream of course).
This rather beautiful fruit contains more Vitamin C than a carrot, plus the flesh is rich in flavonoids. Add in a myriad of vitamins and minerals including Vitamins B1, B2, B3, as well as calcium, phosphorous, and iron and you get a superstar superfruit that offers powerful immune-strengthening properties.
Dragon Fruits are full of antioxidants that reduce oxidation and fight free radical damage, which in turn can help to slow down some of the most common signs of aging. On top of this, dragon fruit contains high levels of phosphorus, which is a mineral that is found in every single cell of the body. This mineral plays an important role in cell regeneration, it also helps to prevent premature aging and promote a healthy, glowing and youthful complexion.
The pink varieties of dragon fruit, also called pink pitaya, contain high levels of one of the most powerful types of antioxidant in the world called lycopene. Lycopene, which is also present in tomatoes, is anti-inflammatory and supports eye health. A recent study by the Department of Pharmacology at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences found that lycopene was able to help prevent cataracts in a large majority of the test cases.
