Pears’ nutritional value

Pears, appreciated for their taste and juiciness, are a rich source of essential minerals and trace elements. Thanks to their high content of potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and copper, they support proper cell function. This fruit is highly digestible and offers antioxidant, diuretic, and refreshing benefits, making it an ideal choice for a healthy and low-sodium diet.

Pears are also an excellent source of soluble fibre, such as pectin, which helps remove residues and toxins, lowers cholesterol, and aids in weight loss. The insoluble fibre found in their skin and flesh absorbs some of the sugars consumed with other foods. So, the consumption of this fruit is not only delicious, but also beneficial for health.
