A happy accident
The grapefruit is known for its sour to semi-sweet, somewhat bitter taste and originated from an accidental cross between the sweet orange and pomelo. It was given the name grapefruit due to growing in clusters, similar to grapes.
Grapefruit juice is low in calories but full of nutrients, and an excellent source of vitamins A and C. Harvard Medical School states that grapefruit has a glycaemic index of 25. This suggests that it does not significantly affect blood sugar and insulin levels.
The special fibre of ruby grapefruit is particularly good for lowering cholesterol. Studies have proven that consuming grapefruit daily will lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It can provide health benefits for the skin, blood pressure, heart health, and disease prevention. However, it is always good to check with your doctor before including grapefruit juice in your diet because it can interact with some medications. It is also said to promote a healthy complexion, increased energy, and lower overall weight.
Soga Organic Ruby Grapefruit Juice is a single ingredient product, with no preservatives, additives or sugar added. As a Certified Organic product, you are also guaranteed no pesticide residues in any of its juice products.
