There is a growing revolt, a war against sugar. While health professionals may label it an ‘addictive poison’, our reliance on convenience foods sees our consumption of refined sugars skyrocketing. So, how can we make it past that 3 o’clock without reaching for a chocolate? The Naseberry is the answer.
Get over your sugar craving with a fruit that can compete with your favourite lollies or sweet treat. The Naseberry tastes like melted brown sugar or caramel, except unlike most sugar fixes – it’s good for you!
5 Food Facts: Naseberry
- The Naseberry is a great source of dietary fibre and is rich in carbohydrates, making it a high-calorie and high-energy fruit. It is often prescribed for breastfeeding mothers to help reduce weakness, used during pregnancy to relieve the symptoms of nausea and dizziness, as well as recommended as a nutritious food for toddlers when teething.
- The fruit is rich in tannin, which are shown to have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti-bacterial, and anti-parasitic effects – it’s even shown to be a great remedy for reflux.
- It contains antioxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin A and B-complex, resulting in benefits for overall body and skin health.
- Naseberries are mineral rich, being a good source of potassium, copper, iron and vitamins like folate, niacin and pantothenic acid – optimal for pregnant mothers.
- They are also a potent sedative, calming nerves and relieving stress; making naseberries a natural diet supplement if you have anxiety or insomnia.
5 Fun Facts: Naseberry
- The Naseberry is also commonly known as Sapodilla, Chico, Chico sapote, Zapote chico, Zapotillo, Chicle and Sapodilla plum.
- It originated in Central America and the latex sap from the tree is commonly used as the base for chewing gum.
- It has a brown fur-like skin similar to a kiwi fruit and is available in Australia during January – February and September – November.
- The Naseberry tree can bears as many as 2000 fruit each year.
