Zespri International Limited's offering, green kiwi fruit from New Zealand, is not only an exotic gifting option for Diwali, but also healthier. Moreover, it does not compromise on taste either.
Geetu Amarnani, consultant nutritionist, said, “Most people have become health-conscious and prefer to limit their intake of high-calorie, greasy Diwali sweets and chocolates.”
“It is important to show your concern towards the wellness of such people by considering a healthy gifting option like the highly nutritious kiwi fruit from New Zealand,” she said.
Describing the fruit as a nutritional powerhouse, Amarnani said, “It is a great source of dietary fibre, potassium, folic acid, Vitamin C and E, carotenoids, antioxidants and trace minerals.”
“It is packed with more minerals and vitamins per gram and per calorie than 27 of the most popular fruit,” she said.
The nutritionist added, “Given the spiritual significance of Diwali, fresh fruit like kiwi fruit can be a part of the puja, symbolising liberation, the ultimate achievement of our life.”
Moreover, the gift pack comes with a recipe pamphlet containing a healthier variety of kiwi fruit-based recipes, including sweets, desserts, sherbets and ice cream.
