Organic Red Dragon Fruit Powder
The pitaya is the fruit of a cactus plant and originally comes from Central and South America. Today it occurs in almost all tropical climates and is mainly cultivated in Asia. But in Europe it was relatively unknown for a long time and a real exotic among the exotics. The Pitaya has only recently become increasingly popular in Germany thanks to the teachings of Anthony William.
The appearance of the fruit is something special. A red to pink or purple, scale-like outer skin bequeathed it the nickname "dragon fruit". They are also available in a yellowish color, but this is far less common in Europe. Depending on the variety, the flesh is red or white with many small black seeds.
It is precisely this pulp in combination with the seeds that makes the pitaya more than just an optical eye-catcher. The fruit consists of high concentrations of beta-carotene and betalain for vitamin A synthesis, iron, calcium, phosphorus and other vitamins (B, C and E).
Our freeze dried Organic Red Dragon Fruit Powder is obtained from the genus Hylocereus costaricensis, a variety with a deep red to purple pulp, which gives our fruit powder its characteristic color, which we have classified subjectively as "magenta".
