The Cantaloupe Melon is famous for its orange flesh, green netted skin and sweet flavour. But what does this variety that we sell in Agroponiente in the spring and part of the summer give us?
The Cantaloupe Melon or Cantaloupe is very low in calories but rich in essential nutrients such as Vitamin A and Vitamin C. It also contains the so-called B9 folate, the folic acid that is recommended to prevent anaemia and promote an adequate development of the fetus in pregnant women.
The high nutritional value of Cantaloupe Melon makes it a source of antioxidants, including choline, beta-carotene, and zeaxanthin. And how does this benefit us? Zeaxanthin helps filter out harmful blue light rays, thus playing a crucial role in eye health.
