Grapefruit グレープフルーツ


Grapefruit
 juice is a tart drink that many people enjoy.

One cup (240 ml) of grapefruit juice provides:

  • Calories: 95
  • Protein: 1.5 grams
  • Carbs: 19 grams
  • Fiber: 1.5 grams
  • Sugar: 20 grams
  • Folate: 9% of the DV
  • Potassium: 8% of the DV
  • Vitamin C: 96% of the DV
  • Vitamin E: 4% of the DV

Grapefruit juice is rich in disease-fighting antioxidants like vitamin C and a compound known as naringin.

However, processing the fruit decreases its content of certain antioxidants. For example, whole grapefruit is rich in beta carotene and lycopene.

It’s important to know that grapefruit and its juice interact with over 85 medications, including blood thinners, antidepressants, and cholesterol and blood pressure medications.
