Earthbound Farm Organic Kiwifruit are an excellent source of vitamins C and K, and a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin E and copper.
Don’t be fooled by this fruit’s diminutive size; the kiwi is an antioxidant powerhouse and considered one of the most nutrient-dense of all major fruits! In fact, kiwis have been shown to be one of the most effective fruits to increase antioxidant levels in the blood. As part of a healthy diet, the antioxidants found in kiwis may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.
To better absorb some of the nutrients found in kiwifruit — namely vitamins K and E — enjoy kiwis with foods that contain good mono- and polyunsaturated fats, such as nuts and salad dressings. Kiwi’s vitamin C content can also help you absorb plant-based iron; just add kiwifruit to a spinach salad, or eat it with other produce that contains iron to maximize absorption.
