Kiwi is a delicious, nutrient-packed and one of the popular fruit which not only satisfies the taste buds but also encourages good health. It contains kissper, a cysteine-rich peptide which may prove valuable in the treatment of cystic fibrosis. Across populations, kiwi is used in the preparation of anti-microbial products to reduce the development of resistance towards the conventional medications for fungal and bacterial infectivity. The fruit has natural blood thinning qualities without any side effects like aspirin. Attributing to its anti-inflammatory properties, it is also valuable in rheumatoid arthritis. Include this fruit in your diet to bring a nutritionally dramatic flair in your health.

How To Select And Store?

Pick up kiwis which are soft and firm and avoid those with bruises or damp spots. Ripe kiwi would yield with a gentle pressure. The fruit that does not yield to a slight pressure indicates the rawness of the fruit and is not ready with its sweet taste as well as complete nutrient factor. It can be ripened by keeping them at room temperature away from heat or sunlight for a couple of days or placing them with an apple or banana in a paper bag to speed up the ripening. Ripe kiwi can be stored in the refrigerator for a few weeks.

Word of caution

Kiwi is a nutritious fruit however; it can cause allergic reactions to susceptible individuals.

Several studies have validated the presence of significant allergens in the kiwifruit which can cause severe reactions predominantly in the young children.
