Native Persimmon: 34 facts and highlights

1. more proteins per 100g

Proteins are essential for a healthy, balanced diet. The recommended daily dose is 0.8-1g of protein per 1 kg of body weight.

2. less cholesterol per 100g

Cholesterol is a lipid essential for producing hormones and takes two forms: LDL, or bad cholesterol, and HDL, good cholesterol. LDL (low-density lipoprotein) contributes to plaque, which can clog arteries and increases the risk of strokes and heart attacks. HDL (high-density lipoprotein) removes LDL from the arteries and carries it to the liver to be broken down.

3. more food energy (kcal) per 100g

The amount of food energy in kilocalories (kcal) per 100g. The minimum daily requirement is approximately 1,800 kcal (according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).

4. more lipids per 100g

Lipids are essential for a healthy, balanced diet. They provide energy and also play a key role in the production of hormones and cell membranes, as well as in the absorption of nutrients and fat-soluble vitamins.

5. more calcium content per 100g

Calcium is a mineral which is very important for bone health. The recommended daily dose for adults is approximately 1000mg per day.

6. more iron content per 100g

Iron is found in hemoglobin, which represents approximately 2 thirds of the body’s iron reserve.

7. more food energy (kJ) per 100g

The amount of food energy in kiloJoules (kJ) per 100g. The minimum daily requirement is approximately 7,500 kJ (according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).

8. higher water content per 100g

Foods with high water content help you stay hydrated. Water also helps transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout the body.

9. more carbohydrates per 100g

Carbohydrates are composed of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, and are divided in 4 groups: oligosaccharides (glycose), monosaccharides and disaccharides which are sugars and serve as a quick source of energy, while polysaccharides, like starches serve for storing energy.

10. more sodium per 100g

Sodium helps regulate the water level in the cells, especially in the kidneys. The amount of sodium consumed also influences blood pressure.

11. more vitamin B12 per 100g

Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is important for maintaining the health of the nervous system. It works closely with folate (vitamin B9) in the production of red blood cells and the processing of iron.

12. more vitamin C per 100g

Also known as ascorbic acid and L-ascorbic acid, vitamin C helps strengthen the immune system and is commonly used to prevent viral infectious diseases.

13. more potassium per 100g

Potassium is a mineral that helps muscles contract, regulates the fluid balance in the body, helps maintain a normal blood pressure and kidney health.

14. more phosphorus per 100g

Phosphorus is the second most abundant mineral found in the human body, after calcium. It helps cellular reproduction and contributes to the growth and repair of tissues.

15. less trans fatty acids per 100g

Trans fatty acids are the unhealthy form of unsaturated fatty acids added to food from vegetable oil for better taste and longer shelf life. They increase bad cholesterol and the risk of coronary heart diseases.

16. more serine per 100g

Serine is an amino acid that contributes to the biosynthesis of proteins, playing a key role in various metabolic processes.

17. more tryptophan per 100g

Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that the body needs for growth, for creating the sleep hormone melatonin, the neurotransmitter serotonin and for the synthesis of vitamin B3.

18. more ash per 100g

The ash content refers to the total amount of minerals contained (potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium).

19. more isoleucine per 100g

Isoleucine is an essential amino acid, important for the the synthesis of hemoglobin, the regulation and stabilization of blood sugars and energy levels, and tissue repair.

20. more leucine per 100g

Leucine is an essential amino acid for adipose, muscle and liver tissues. It stimulates protein synthesis, protecting muscles from stress and is important for regulating blood sugar and stimulating insulin release, which is important for building muscles.

21. more lysine per 100g

Lysine is an essential amino acid that helps the body absorb calcium and has a crucial role in collagen formation.

22. more methionine per 100g

Methionine is an essential amino acid that plays an important role in synthesizing other proteins, forming cartilage tissues, dissolving fat and reducing fat in the liver. It has an anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effect and strengthens hair and nail structure.

23. more cystine per 100g

Cystine is a non-essential amino acid that helps proteins in maintaining their structure. It also supports tissue formation and is necessary for the body to produce glutathione to remove toxins from the liver.

24. more phenylalanine per 100g

Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that the body uses to make proteins, thyroid hormones, epinephrine, dopamine and norepinephrine, three essential neurotransmitters.

25. more tyrosine per 100g

Tyrosine is an amino acid that the body produces from phenylalanine. It is important for synthesizing melanin, thyroid hormones, epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine, three important stimulators of mood and feelings of well-being.
