- One medium-sized kiwifruit contains only 46 calories
- A serving of kiwifruit (2 kiwis) has twice the vitamin C of an orange, as much potassium as a banana and the fiber of a bowl of whole grain cereal–all for less than 100 calories!
- a 100-gram serving of kiwifruit—that’s about one large kiwi—provides 15% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of potassium.
- A kiwifruit’s fiber content is as high as many whole grain cereals and it contributes to its moderate to low glycemic index of 52; it does not rapidly raise blood glucose levels—which is great news for individuals suffering from diabetes
- kiwifruit has the best nutrient density of 21 commonly consumed fruits
- It is rich in magnesium, a nutrient essential to convert food into energy.
Kiwifruit contains protein actinidain which softens the meat. Same protein digests proteins in milk and gelatin and prevents solidification of desserts (induces “melting” of the cake).
