Is this really natural? Yes, we now sell all natural papaya, with no added sugar and no sulphur dioxide or other preservatives. This delicious treat reminds us of extra sticky and chewy fruit roll-ups from our youth. Natural dried papaya is a lot tougher to chew than the sweetened variety of papaya, but the taste is incredible and worth the effort! Make sure you have good teeth though or be prepared to use a knife to cut in order to truly enjoy this delicacy.
Health Benefits of Natural Dried Papaya
Natural papaya is a good source of dietary fiber and enzymes that support a healthy digestive system. As an alkaline fruit, papaya is helpful in soothing an upset stomach. It’s also chock-full of beta carotene which the body uses to make vitamin A. This nutrient aids in the maintenance of healthy skin and mucous membranes, while also lending a helping hand to eye health. Vitamin A supports good vision and reduces the risk of eye infections. Natural papaya is also packed with antioxidants, which are the protective compounds that neutralize harmful free radicals to prevent damage to healthy cells in your body. This delicious tropical treat can really boost your nutrition levels!
