10 Health Benefits of Kiwi Fruit
Whether simply enjoyed with a spoon or tossed in a festive fruit salad, kiwi, or kiwifruit, is one of the most beloved tropical fruits, with a thin light-brown, slightly fuzzy skin on the outside and green, sweet-tart fruit on the inside. The bright, inviting color of kiwi flesh may give you an inkling of just how good these little fruits are for health. While it may not look as inviting from the outside, kiwi skin is packed with nutrients and perfectly safe and healthy to eat—so no need to remove the peel. In fact, according to research published in the European Journal of Nutrition, eating a whole SunGold kiwi including the skin, provides 50 percent more fiber, 32 percent more vitamin E, and 34 percent more folate (aka vitamin B9).
