Sold as 2 Grapefruits (~260g / 9.2 oz)
The Star Ruby Grapefruit is the best-in-class regarding color (the redder the grapefruit is, the sweeter), flavor & fragrance amongst its peers. It has a yellow-orange exterior with a blush of rose, aromatically bright, juicy flesh, a rich ruby in color, & just-right sweet-tartness!
Available all-year round, but best from November to May
- Vitamin C Powerhouse: Vitamin C is effective in reducing the severity of cold symptoms & also prevents the damage from free radicals that trigger the inflammatory cascade, & hence also help with inflammatory conditions (e.g. asthma, osteoarthritis & rheumatoid arthritis)!
- Lowers Cholesterol: Grapefruit contains pectin, a form of soluble fiber that has been shown to potentially slow down the progression of atherosclerosis. Both red & blond grapefruits positively influenced cholesterol levels, but red grapefruit has been found to be more than twice as effective (reducing LDL cholesterol in just 30 days), especially in lowering triglycerides. In addition, both grapefruits have been shown to significantly improve blood levels of protective antioxidants
