Add a boost of nutrition to your diet
Pear is a powerhouse of nutrition. They are an excellent source of fiber, potassium vitamins A, B, C, and E, folic acid, mineral salts, sugars, iodine, iron and calcium. They are Sodium free, fat free and cholesterol free which may reduce the risk of heart disease. “Pears are a fruit that needs more attention. They are special because of their nutritional properties and we often seem to miss it in our shopping baskets. Pears are an excellent source of fiber, potassium and Vitamin C. A single medium pear contains nearly 24 per cent the daily fiber needs – and is only 100 calories,” says Kinita.
If you trying to manage your weight, pears are a great option. They help fill up small tummies. Pears are also portion-controlled and portable, so they make for a healthy snack.
Sometimes people think that since fruit naturally contains sugar, eating fruit is not appropriate for managing diabetes. This is not true! Pears are not only full of vitamins, minerals, water, and fiber but are also low on Glycemic Index. Foods high in fiber, such as pears, taste sweet without having the deleterious effect of spiking blood sugar.
They are now seasonless
If you thought pears is only available in summer that’s not true anymore. Telling us about the same, Sumit Saran, India Representative for USA Pears say, “USA Pears perfectly complement the Indian Pear season. The Indian Pears season ends in October and USA Pears start arriving in the market from November giving Indian consumers more choice. India is one of the key growth markets for USA Pears. We have launched a large consumer outreach program in India by partnering retailers and media.
