3 Benefits of Papaya

Once called “the fruit of angels” by Christopher Columbus, the papaya is the USDA’s featured fruit for the month of June. Learn a little bit about why this fruit is so amazing!

Papaya Varieties

There are several types of papayas. In the U.S., we typically see the Hawaiian papayas in our grocery stores. The Hawaiian papaya is approximately one pound, whereas the Mexican fruit can weigh up to 10 pounds!

Papaya Benefits

Papaya is one power-packed fruit, offering benefits to your whole body.

  • Antioxidants. Papaya is known to be rich in antioxidants and can benefit the immune system because of its high levels of vitamin A and C.
  • Fiber. High-fiber fruit can help improve cholesterol. One cup of chunked papaya contains 2.5 grams of fiber.
  • Enzymes. The papain enzyme, found in papaya, aids in digestion. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect that speeds up the healing process.

Papaya – How to Eat It

First, you should wait for the papaya to ripen fully so that it offers the most antioxidants. Papaya can be added to anything to give your meal a boost. Some suggestions are:

  • salads
  • cereals
  • yogurts
  • smoothies
