Just like apples, Asian pears are juicy, crunchy, with an almost buttery, grainy texture which melts in the mouth when you eat it. This is the second item in our list for the fruits which are dubbed as the new ‘superfruits’ due to their rich antioxidant content.
If your tastebuds are tired munching on the all-too-familiar flavor of the apples in your dinner table, why not substitute it with Asian pears? These antioxidant-rich fruit has almost twice as much as the dietary fiber content of a large apple, and is also rich in vitamins C and K. Dietary fibers are great for lowering your cholesterol level.
For those who are on a weight loss program, Asian pears help speed up your goal of shedding off those excess pounds. Since they are high in dietary fibers, Asian pears help curb those unnecessary cravings, making you feel full for a longer amount of time.
Finally, Asian pears help promote colon and cardiovascular health, it is a hypo-allergenic fruit and it helps prevent macular degeneration.
Chopped, fresh Asian pears can be combined with your favorite green salads, added onto your breakfast cereal or served with goat cheese for a sumptuous dessert.
