Quandong The New Superfood ?
Could the Native Australian fruit the Quandong become the next superfood ? They are packed with protein ,antioxdants, vitamin e , magnesium , calcium , complex oils , iron & zinc . On top of that they contain twice the vitamin c of an orange . They can be eaten fresh from the tree or made into jams , pies , cakes , you name it . But are they really a superfood ?
So what actually is a superfood ? it can just be a nutrient rich food considered to be beneficial for your health and wellbeing , or can it ? It seems today this work gets used way too much and at the end of the day the word superfood is being used more just for marketing as it really holds no technical scientific value .
Well as far as these supposed superfoods go the native Australian Quandong is high on the list of being good for you in Australia and until it gains a little more popularity around the world elsewhere it may stay a little low if not at all on most peoples lists of "the next thing to try " . But none theless we have no reports of it being bad for you and if you live outside of Australia you will be delighted to know that some companies are slowly starting to offer the quandong in a processed form . Hopefully a few people may start growing it abroad !
