Kiwi

Kiwis can help protect the body from asthma, benefit your cardiovascular health, increase blood sugar control, protect you from macular degeneration and protect your DNA!

Kiwi is tangy and sweet all at the same time. Kiwis contain the same amount of vitamin C as an orange and are about half the size! The green flesh inside is lined with tiny black edible seeds. It has a creamy texture and the taste resembles a combination of banana, strawberry, pear, and melon all wrapped into one little fruit.

Health Benefits of Kiwi:

Kiwis contain unique phytonutrients, antioxidants and are loaded with vitamin C which benefits our immune system and heart health.

NS Recommends:

Since most fruit will ripen fairly quickly, store in the fridge when it reaches peak ripeness. If the fruit gets too ripe, simply store in a container or sealed bag in the freezer to use for later. Perfect for smoothies!

Note:

If you have a latex allergy, kiwis are one of those fruits (as are bananas and avocados) that contain compounds that are associated with a latex-fruit syndrome, a cross-reaction. If you have a latex allergy, be mindful and cautious when eating these fruits. You may have a reaction that may include an itchy throat, mouth, nose or ears, hives, or stomach issues.
