TAMARILLO IS…

A HIGH NATURAL SOURCE OF VITAMINS A AND C

One serving (100 grams) of tamarillo provides 20% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A and 48% of the vitamin C intake. Vitamin A stimulates the production of white blood cells, supports bone density, and regulates cell growth. Meanwhile, vitamin C is essential for skin, bones, and connective tissue, plus it increases iron absorption.

A NATURAL SOURCE OF POTASSIUM

One serving (100 grams) of tamarillo provides 7% of the recommended daily intake of potassium. This mineral helps nerves and muscles communicate, it allows nutrients to flow into cells, and it helps remove waste from cells. A diet rich in potassium helps counteract some of the harmful effects of sodium in blood pressure.

A NATURAL SOURCE OF IRON

Half a cup of tamarillo provides 5% of the recommended daily intake of iron. The body needs this mineral to produce proteins, hemoglobin, and myoglobin. Hemoglobin is found in red blood cells, while myoglobin is present in muscles. These two proteins help carry and store oxygen in the body. Iron is also essential for growth, development, cellular functioning, and synthesis of some hormones.

INTERESTING INFO

Tamarillo is also known in Spanish as tomate de árbol, sachatomate, chilto and tomate andino. In New Zealand it is called tamarillo to differentiate it from the regular tomato. Originally from Central and South America, in Colombia it can be found in the regions of Antioquia, Cundinamarca, Boyacá, Huila, and Valle del Cauca. Some claim that tamarillo helps control high blood pressure, cholesterol, improves memory, can be used to treat migraines, and is often used in weight loss diets. Because of its high antioxidant content, it boosts the immune system and improves eyesight.
