Pitaya, also known as Dragon Fruit, is a superfruit grown in the tropical regions of South East Asia and South America. It is known for its many health benefits including:
- rich in antioxidants
- contains essential fatty acids
- a good source of beta-carotene, lycopene & vitamin E
- a good source of dietary fibre
- contains natural prebiotic properties
The pitaya powder is made from the sweeter red varieties that contain the extra benefits of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that is said to help prevent cancer and heart disease, and lower blood pressure. The pitaya powder is also 100% natural and freeze dried to retain maximum nutrition. With its vivid pink colour it is the prettiest superfood around.
