    Pomelo Fruit (Bưởi) & Health Benefits from pomelo

    Pomelo ( VietNamese name: Bưởi) is a member of the citrus family and is a native to Southeast Asia. The largest known citrus fruit, it appears like a big grapefruit but has a sweeter taste to it and is much less bitter. To eat the pomelo, a knife is needed to carve the green skin off, while the spongy part of the skin could be removed by hand. Once all the covering is taken off, the pulps holding a pleasantly refreshing liquid are revealed.

    Pomelo  Fruit (Bưởi)

    There are several tasty varieties of pomelo in Vietnam, often named after the location where it grows. In the North, there is the Doan Hung pomelo (which grows in Phu Tho Province), there in the Dien pomelo (which grows in Dien, Ha Noi) in the Central there is the Phuc Trach pomelo (from Ha Tinh Province), and in the South there is the Tan Trieu pomelo (Bien Hoa Province).

    Pomelo  Fruit (Bưởi) Taste: sweet with just a hint of grapefruit-like tang, pomelos are refreshing first thing in the morning or cold from the refrigerator, as a fortifying snack. Its juice can be a tasty addition to sauces, salads, salsas, and marinades. The curious mixture of melon-like sweetness with citrus tang makes pomelo juice a welcome addition to many recipes—add a skinless, seedless wedge to flavor your favorite iced tea.

    Nutritional Value Of Pomelos

    The reason that pomelos are popular is due to their very strong nutritional value, including their vitamins, minerals, and organic compounds like vitamin C, potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin B6, and magnesium. It does not have a strong variety of nutrients, but the ones that it does have are in impressive proportions, particularly vitamin C.

    Health Benefits Of Pomelos
    Immune System: Although a single serving is less than an entire fruit, considering how large they are, it isn’t a terrible idea to eat the entire fruit, considering that each fruit contains approximately 600% of your daily vitamin C requirement. This major source of ascorbic acid has been used for generations in Southeast Asia as a quick immune system booster. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant substance to increase white blood cell activity and attack free radicals that can damage the organ systems of the body. It helps to fight off infections that lead to colds, coughs, fevers, and more serious symptoms or microbial, viral, and bacterial infections.

    Digestion: Most fruits contain high amounts of fiber, and pomelos are no exception. One pomelo (the edible flesh only), contains about 25% of your daily requirement of fiber. This promotes healthy digestion and eliminates problems like constipation and diarrhea. High fiber content bulks up the stool, promotes smooth movement in the digestive tract, and stimulates the secretion of digestive and gastric juices to break down complex proteins and more difficult to digest foods. This keeps the digestive system  functioning at a high level.

    Blood Pressure: Pomelos are a very good source of potassium, and each fruit contains roughly 37% of your daily requirement. Potassium is a vasodilator, meaning that it releases tension of blood vessels and promotes increased blood circulation and oxygenation of organ systems. This also reduces strain on the heart and lowers your chances of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes.

    Cancer Fighter: The Chinese use the pomelo rind in many dishes. The skin of the fruit is very rich in bioflavonoids which helpful in reducing pancreatic, intestinal, and breast cancer. Pomelo rind contains rich bioflavonoids that help in fighting against cancer cells. It prevents the spread of breast cancer cells especially by enabling the body to eliminate excess estrogen.


    So, through the posts on here I think: if there is an opportunity come to Vietnam, you should enjoy this fruit,  taste of pomelo be very great. :)
