SONY DSCPear, Pyrus communis, is one of the most popular consumed fruits around the world, due to its pleasant taste and nutritional value [1].


This fruit is a source of many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C and potassium. Pear is also a source of phytochemicals, especially antioxidants [2]. Moreover2 the high content of soluble fibre and polyphenols in pears, previously shown to have hypoglycaemic and hypolipidaemic effects, may contribute to metabolic health by improving lipid profiles, glycaemic control and reducing chronic inflammation [3].


SONY DSCIl succo di pera, per consistenza, per sweet to sweet-tart taste e per fragrant aroma, trova nel succo di pompelmo la perfetta sinergia di gusto, colore, micronutrienti e phytochemicals.
