Agricola Gloria good fruit from the world.
The pear is a fruit rich in nutritional properties, excellent for preparing desserts and fruit salads, but also to flavour savoury dishes such as risottos and, of course, to accompany cheese. Rich in fructose, a sugar that has a low glycaemic index, the pear is very digestible and is among the first foods to be introduced during weaning. It contains few calories (just 30-35 per 100 g) but many minerals and valuable flavonoids such as quercetin, catechins, lignans and hydroxycinnamic acids. The latter, as well as flavonoids, are very powerful antioxidants. Pears are powerful supplements of salts and vitamins. They contain 84% water, vitamin A, B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6), vitamins C, D, K and J and, among the mineral salts, a well-balanced synergy of potassium, sodium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, fluoride and calcium. In particular, thanks to its high potassium content, the pear is suitable for sportsmen and women (prevents muscle cramps) and for those who have to follow a low-sodium diet, such as hypertensive subjects and those suffering from kidney stones and disorders. In addition, pears eaten on an empty stomach are perfect for rehydrating during the hottest periods of the year. Especially in their cooked version, they are also mildly laxative and, thanks to the soluble fibres they contain, promote good intestinal function and normalise cholesterol levels.
