Tangy with an gorgeous underlying sweetness, grapefruit has a juiciness that rivals all other citrus fruits, with the same health and beautify benefits. Although available throughout the year, they are in season and at their best from winter through to early spring.
FOOD ACTIVES: Fibre, Potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin B5 and Vitamin C.
BEAUTY BOOST: Grapefruit being so rich in Vitamin C, is amazing for helping boost collagen production in your skin to keep it plump and wrinkle free. The anti-oxidants in grapefruit will also fight free radicals that can cause lines, wrinkles, discolorations and blemishes. For those with breakout prone skin, grapefruit extracts increase the pH of the skin, which can help reduce spots and inflammation. For your inside, they can also help lower cholesterol and we all know how great vitamin C is for fighting off colds and flues.
COOK: Use in citrus winter salad or for something sweet, make into a icy granita or sorbet. For main courses, use a side salsa in seafood or chicken dishes
TIP: Although you can store your grapefruit on the kitchen counter, if you put it in a plastic bag in the fridge it can stay fresh for up to 2 weeks!
