From the Rutaceae family, genus Citrus, grapefruits were popular ornamental plants in Renaissance Europe, and only became known as fruit during the XIX Century.
Refreshing and thirst-quenching, grapefruits are rich in organic acids (citric and malic), vitamin C and P, mineral salts, potassium and iron.
They contain less calories than oranges, and they are highly recommended in weight loss diets because they help reduce food assimilation.
Apples naturally contain pectin, which helps keep blood sugar under control; they can also facilitate the decrease of bad cholesterol (LDL) and the increase good cholesterol (HDL).
Thanks to the presence of flavonoids, which have excellent antioxidant properties, apples can also help prevent heart conditions such as heart attacks.
One bottle of DiFrutta Grapefruit & Apple juice contains the equivalent to 3 yellow grapefruits and 1/2 apple.
