Love them or hate them, the contradictory sweet-bitter grapefruit is packed full of nutritional benefits.

  • Grapefruit come in a variety of colours, from white or yellow to pink and red, and the taste can range from sour and bitter to sweet and sugary.
  • Packed with the antioxidants vitamin A and C, the grapefruit can be a real boost for your immune system, and it’s a fruit very low in calories.
  • It’s high in fibre, making it very beneficial to good digestive health.
  • One grapefruit contains 91% of water, making it one of the most hydrating fruits available. It’s also full of electrolytes, so it’s a great snack to have to prevent dehydration.
  • You can add a wedge of grapefruit to water, segment into salad, or cut one in half, dust it in coconut sugar and pop it in the oven for an amazing healthy dessert.
