Tart and tangy with an underlying sweetness, grapefruit has a juiciness that rivals that of the ever popular orange and sparkles with many of the same health promoting benefits


Health benefits

䄏 Grapefruit is an excellent source of vitamin C, a vitamin that helps to support the immune system.

䄏 Eating higher amounts of a compound found in citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruit may lower ischemic stroke risk for women.

䄏 The rich pink and red colors of grapefruit are due to lycopene, a carotenoid phytonutrient. PLEASE NOTE: Lycopene is only found in pink and red grapefruit. Lycopene has the highest capacity to help fight oxygen free radicals, which are compounds that can damage cells.

䄏 Phytonutrients in grapefruit called limonoids inhibit tumor formation.


Ways to enjoy

䄏 Update the classic grapefruit and avocado salad recipe by adding a few drops of Thai fish sauce to the dressing, giving this time­honored favorite a burst of umami, the so­called sixth taste that adventurous diners crave.

䄏 Combine diced grapefruit with cilantro and chili peppers to make a unique salsa

䄏 To enjoy a salad with a tropical flair, combine chopped grapefruit pieces, cooked shrimp and avocados and serve on a bed of romaine lettuce.


How to store

䄏 Since grapefruits are juicier when they're slightly warm rather than cool, store them at room temperature if you are planning on consuming them within a week of purchase.

䄏 If you will not be using them within this time period, store them in the refrigerator crisper where they will keep fresh for two to three weeks.
