Properties and benefits of pomelo, a very ancient and rich fruit, as well as the ancestor of all citrus fruits.
Pomelo is an increasingly popular fruit, so much so that it can be found in ethnic shops and supermarkets. It is a true concentrate of vitamins and minerals , rich in beneficial properties and with a typical citrus flavor, a family to which it belongs.
The pomelo, in fact, is a distant relative of the grapefruit and seems to be even a citrus fruit so old as to be considered the ancestor of what we usually consume today.
A surprising fruit that comes from China and whose history has been lost over time but which thanks to its particular flavor and pleasant consistency, is becoming increasingly appreciated.
Pomelo: benefits and contraindications
Pomelo is a fruit rich in benefits and excellent for those on a diet . For 100 grams it has only 35 calories.

Obviously, pomelo can also have contraindications . Like grapefruit, it is not recommended if antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs and anticoagulants are used. More generally, those taking drugs should therefore seek advice from their doctor.
Pomelo: how to eat
Pomelo is a fruit that is eaten naturally . Excellent as a snack, it can be eaten for breakfast in the form of juice or in salads, both as juice for seasoning and cut into small pieces. For many it can be difficult to peel as it has a particularly robust peel .
Furthermore, once the peel has been removed, the thin film that protects the various segments must also be removed. A somewhat cumbersome step but that will be rewarded by the taste of the fruit that is truly irresistible.
