Guava is an extremely tasty snack when losing weight. Although it is not well known in our country, it is worth trying. I fell in love with this unusual taste, but there are many more benefits from eating this fruit.

Guava, also called guava or pear, is a fruit that few people in our country have heard of. It's a pity, because it is a real “vitamin bomb”. It is a tropical fruit that comes from southern Mexico and central America. It has a sweet taste, aromatic smell, and its shape somewhat resembles a pear. It is grown in various parts of the world, and currently its largest producer is India. It is quite difficult to buy it in our country, but you can order it via online stores – also fresh fruit. You can also get it in some health food stores. However, growing this plant in Poland is only possible in a pot.

Additionally, it also contains a large amount of potassium, which contributes to better and faster fat burning. Moreover, guava consists of 81.9 percent. from water. This fruit provides a small amount of calories (100 g provides 68.0 kcal), so it is perfect, for example, as an ingredient of desserts on a slimming diet.

Eating this fruit improves the functioning of the digestive tract. Guava also contains large amounts of pectin, which speeds up the digestion process. This fruit can be a great addition to a healthy weight-loss diet, but don't forget about its consumption in moderation – this rule applies to every product. Also check whether you can eat all fruits on a slimming diet. It is important to avoid the most caloric fruits during this time. Also see what vegetables to eat on a diet, because some will have the completely opposite effect than you expect.

However, guava has many more properties that have a positive effect on our body. It is also an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A. This fruit also has numerous antioxidant and antibacterial properties. It is also a source of minerals such as iron, copper and zinc. It also contains lipokene, polyphenols, and omega-3 fatty acids.

How can you use guava in the kitchen?

Guava has a distinctive, slightly sweetish flavor that is often described as a blend of tropical fruits. Some people compare it to a combination of pear, apple and banana. It is also slightly sour, but not as intensely as some fruits. The taste of a guava may vary depending on its ripeness: the riper the guava, the sweeter and more aromatic it becomes.

Guava has a sweetish taste, so you can successfully eat it “solo”, in a similar way to an apple or pear – just peel it and cut it. However, there are many more ways to use it. An interesting option is to cut these fruits in half and gently fry them in butter or grill/bake them. Guava is also perfect as an addition to various types of cakes, desserts, mousses and cocktails. You can also add it to salads – it will break up and diversify the taste of these dishes. You can also prepare jams from it. You can also buy guava in a can, dried or candied.
