Guava Fragrance

Guavas are fragrant, tasty tropical fruits that most Americans are only familiar with since they are commonly used in jellies. However, these red-fleshed (and sometimes white-fleshed) fruits carry a powerful nutritional punch. According to new government studies, guava may be deserving of a spot among the antioxidant elite.

Guava outperformed strawberries, spinach, and broccoli in one frequently used antioxidant test, the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity [ORAC] test. (Both the red and white fleshed guavas scored in the top ten fruits and vegetables tested, although the red flesh scored higher in antioxidants.)

Guava contains lycopene, which helps prevent prostate and breast cancer. It contains more of the carotenoid lycopene than any other fruit or vegetable. Tomatoes are the most common source of lycopene in the United States, but guavas are an even better source. A cup of guava has 17% more lycopene than a same amount of tomatoes. …

Guava advantages are the same whether cooked or raw. This fruit is high in potassium. One cup of guava cubes has 688 mg of potassium, which is 63% more than a medium banana!
