The Health Benefits of Pineapple and Pawpaw | Herbal Goodness

At Herbal Goodness we are going to share super fruits with you that offer loads of benefits, including papaya health benefits. Our women-owned health foods company specializes in papaya, one of the super fruits that offers high levels of vitamin C, fiber, and minerals. Like pawpaw, papaya can be eaten raw. 

Both offer a sweet taste, although the papaya fruit, is usually sweeter than pawpaw. Blend a mix of papaya and pineapple and you have a tasty beverage or fruit dish. You can also blend pineapple and pawpaw, a fruit grown in temperate  areas like North America on trees that grow up to about 7 feet tall. 

About Pawpaw and Papaya

With pineapple and pawpaw, you can also enjoy the health benefits of pineapple juice. Both papaya and pawpaw have a flesh middle that's filled with soft fruit and seeds. Therefore, before you mix papaya and pineapple or pawpaw and pineapple, make sure that you scoop the seeds out. 

Another difference between pawpaw and papaya is that pawpaw is a little larger than papaya. In fact, pawpaw is the largest native fruit that you can eat in the United States.1 Also, pawpaw is round while papaya is shaped more like a long football. Pawpaw is also more yellow than papaya, which is more reddish-orange on the inside. 

When it comes to vitamins and minerals, with pawpaw you get vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, amino acids, iron, niacin, and zinc. In fact, pawpaw has about three times more vitamin C than you'd find in an apple. It also has 20 or more times the iron found in an apple, orange or banana. Add in the vitamins of pineapple and you can see the benefits of pawpaw.

Papaya is also a great source of vitamin C. Our Herbal Goodness Papaya Seed Powder and dried bulk Papaya Leaves offer you a good daily intake of vitamin C. But, that's not all. Other vitamins and minerals in papaya are vitamin A, magnesium, potassium, folate, and fiber.2 Also, unlike pawpaw, papaya can stay fresh longer without having to be refrigerated. Because papaya is a larger super fruit, single papaya can serve you longer than one pawpaw.
