Give your family the inspired goodness of Papaya!

Papaya makes it easy to deliver a bundle of essential nutrients to your busy family – all, in a colourful, convenient and juicy package! From digestive and immune wellbeing to skin hydration and elasticity, papaya is loaded with inspired goodness. For a summary of the great benefits, click here.

Give your immune system a helping hand: papaya naturally contains a unique bundle of antioxidants – vitamin C and carotenoids – that help bolster your body’s defences. In fact, a single 150g serve of papaya [about one cup, diced] provides more than twice your recommended daily intake for vitamin C, and nearly a third of vitamin A. Papaya is also a source of fibre, which helps with digestive balance and keeps you feeling fuller, longer.

For expecting mums, papaya is a smart choice: it contains folate, essential for normal cell division and growth in pregnancy.

Your skin will thank you for consuming papaya. Its antioxidant bundle – vitamin C and carotenoids – can assist with skin elasticity, and form and repair skin cells. Bonus: papaya’s naturally high water content can help keep your skin glowing.

Naturally low in energy (kJ) and fat, papaya is a smart choice for your family:  it’s the everyday fruit that helps you keep going on the outside – and glowing on the inside.
