Seasonal Fruit and Citrus

Seasonal Fruit and Citrus: history and information

We have always dreamed of being able to go directly “to the farmer” to choose fresh seasonal fruit, and that's why, to search for producers, one of our selectors went to l&' Italy to look for the right “farmers”, those from whom you know that the fruit is exactly as you imagine it: fresh and freshly picked! Every day we try to include the best typical features of our territory, and not only those of great artisans, but also those of the land itself. In fact, the land of &' Italy produces every day, through the gardens and orchards of thousands of expert farmers, many fruits and citrus fruits protected by important denominations such as the PDO and the IGP. Just think of the PDO Ribera Oranges or the PGI Marrone del Mugello

How good is it to eat fresh fruit in season

Vitamins. This word alone could be enough to underline how important fruit is to us: precisely because of its vitamin supply, essential every day. But fruit, and especially citrus fruits, is not only this: if eaten in adequate quantities, it can truly represent a pillar of our diet. L&' water intake, for example, is very important and facilitates l&' hydration of our body even in people who do not feel the urge to thirst. Then fruit also represents a lot of energy, but its contribution depends on the product and its seasonality. They range from &' watermelon, which gives a caloric intake equal to 16 kcal/100g, to chestnut, which instead gives 165 kcal/100g and 25.3 g of starch. If we look at exotic fruits, there are even higher caloric intakes, as for l&' avocado (231 kcal) and coconut (364 kcal). As far as fats are concerned, the amount is rather small and composed of unsaturated and polyunsaturated lipids. The amount of protein is quite irrelevant, however. Important, however, is l&' fiber intake, consisting of water-soluble polymers, which contributes to &' intestinal integrity. Fresh fruit has great antioxidant potential: the real shield against stress, against l&' aging, carcinogenesis and l&' atherogenesis.

However, it is important to know how to measure: fruit is sweet because it contains fructose, which is a natural sugar. The fact is that if you decide to replace the products of the &' confectionery industry with fresh fruit and citrus fruits, you sign a pivotal point of dietary correction, which is a key principle of the true Mediterranean diet. Sweet foods are available all year round, unlike fresh seasonal fruit, and this risks, through customary uses, becoming attached to a certain type of industrial product that only hurts us every time we assimilate it. #39 If sweets were replaced with seasonal fruit, we would bring only benefits to our body: we would increase l&' hydration, l&' intake of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, soluble dietary fiber, we would decrease simple sugars and overall calories by at least 500%, we would moderate the

insulin response and promote satiety.
