Papaya 500g makes it easy to deliver a bundle of essential nutrients to your family, in a colourful, convenient and juicy package! From digestive and immune wellbeing to skin hydration and elasticity, papaya is loaded with inspired goodness. It naturally contains a unique bundle of antioxidants including vitamin C and carotenoids. These help bolster your body’s defences. A single 150g serve of papaya [about one cup, diced] provides more than twice your recommended daily intake for vitamin C, and nearly a third of vitamin A. Papaya is also a source of fibre, which helps with digestive balance and keeps you feeling fuller, longer. Naturally low in energy (kJ) and fat, it’s a smart choice for your family. It’s the everyday fruit that helps you keep going on the outside and glowing on the inside.
For expecting mums, papaya is a smart choice. It contains folate, essential for normal cell division and growth in pregnancy.
