    Organic Dragon Fruit Slices by Navitas Naturals

    Navitas Naturals - Dragon Fruit Slices - 3 oz. (85g)

    Navitas Naturals Dragon Fruit Slices comes from dragonfruit which is harvested from a night-blooming cactus that grows in tropical regions including Thailand, Vietnam and South America. Also known as Pitaya, the large delicate fruit that sprout from the arms of the cactus have a strange and colorful appearance. The fruit is created only if the cactus flowers are pollinated at night by bats, moths and nocturnal creatures. Dragonfruit has a sweet flavor similar to pears and kiwifruits. These chewy, purple slices are low in calories and contain vitamin C, magnesium, protein, antioxidants and iron.

    Product of Thailand
    To create this unique superfruit product, small-scale farmers in the lush tropical regions of Thailand select only the finest fresh red dragonfruit that is sustainably harvested from night-blooming cactus plants. Known as kaeo mangkon or "dragon crystal" to indigenous people of Thailand, Dragonfruit is famous for its unusual, eye-catching appearance. The soft, pulpy center of each Dragonfruit is speckled with tiny black seeds, and this fibrous sweet pulp is carefully removed in slices that are sun dried

    Nutrition Facts
    The Dragonfruit has an unusually strong nutrition profile to match its bizarre appearance. This tropical superfruit is a source of omega 3 essential fatty acids, vitamin C, protein, fiber, magnesium, vitamin B, phosphorus and iron. Dragonfruit also contains many antioxidants including complex phytoalbumins and lycopene. It is a bonus that the fruit is low in calories, and it’s comprised of complex carbohydrates that can easily be broken down by the body.

    Cactus Superfruit
    Dragonfruit is a low-calorie food that has a well-rounded nutrition profile – and that makes it a true superfruit! It’s a great source of vitamins, including C and B, and it contains key minerals including iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Dragonfruit provides 2g of protein per serving, which is a lot for a fruit, and it’s also a rich source of essential fatty acids including omega-3.

    Due to its high level of complex phytoalbumins, Dragonfruit is an excellent addition to your diet if you're looking to boost your intake of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich foods. Decreasing inflammation can help reduce the risk of certain types of illnesses including hypertension, heart disease and arthritis. Dragonfruit is also a good source of lycopene, another powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants have been shown to protect cells from free-radical damage that can lead to illness. Dragonfruit Slices are a healthy food, not a miracle drug. Health claims herein have not been reviewed by the FDA. Navitas Naturals products are not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any disease.

    A Slice of Thai
    Purple Dragonfruit Slices have a delicious sweet flavor and a chewy texture that’s ideal as a delicious snack right out of the bag. The taste of this superfruit is similar to pears, mangos and kiwifruits. Like any dried fruit, purple Dragonfruit Slices can be enjoyed as an ingredient in many healthy recipes including salads, trail mixes, oatmeal, cereals, desserts and baked goods.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    What is a superfood?
    The Oxford English Dictionary includes citations for "superfood" as far back as World War I, in the context of "a food considered especially nutritious or otherwise beneficial to health and well-being."

    Below, is their definition.

    A superfood is a nutrient-dense fruit or vegetable that contains a high content of antioxidants, protein, omega-3, minerals, fiber or other essential nutrients that have proven health benefits. Nutrient density is the ratio of calories to micronutrients - the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals that are essential to health, wellness and feeling great. Nutrient-dense foods, like most vegetables and fruits, have a high amount of valuable micronutrients and a low amount of calories. To protect the 'super' quality and nutrient integrity, a superfood must be certified organic and minimally processed.

      This simply comes down to your personal taste regarding dragon fruit. The texture is very pleasing - soft and chewy against the crunch of the seeds. The color is beautiful. The fruit itself is just *very* mild in any sort of flavor. All in all - good product
