Pears (Ya) also known as Chinese White Pears are juicy white pears, which taste like a cross between a rose and a pineapple. Pears are often recommended by healthcare practitioners as a hypoallergenic fruit that is less likely to produce an adverse response than other fruits. Particularly in the introduction of first fruits to infants, pears are often recommended as a safe way to start. They are a good source of vitamin C and copper. These nutrients are both antioxidants which assist to protect cells in the body from oxygen-related damage due to free radicals. These fruits are high in fibre, low in calories and contain a number of micronutrients that are important for blood, bone and cardiovascular health.
