Omigod these Dragonfruit Chips are delicious! Give a pack to everybody! These are the Red variety (although their color might be better described as purple or fuschia), as opposed to the White variety. They are grown and processed in Vietnam to meticulous standards of quality.

We purchased these for two purposes: To be sold as is, for a delicious snack full of healthy things (read more below), and for use in our fruit tea blends.

They are the best type of freeze-dried, crispy and light. Yum! New shipment just in this summer!

Meant as an intro or small, delicious snack... and are perfect as stocking stuffers or that little healthy pick-me-up snack in the middle of a long afternoon. Many of our customers just don't want to be without these healthy freeze-dried treats on hand!

Carbs

Dragon fruit is a naturally low-calorie food, with most of the calories coming from carbohydrate. There are two types of carbohydrate in dragon fruit: naturally occurring sugars (13g per 6-ounce serving) and fiber. You'll get 5 grams of fiber—or about 18% of your recommended daily intake—in a 6-ounce serving.

The exact glycemic index (GI) of dragon fruit has not been recorded, although one study estimates the glycemic index to be similar to that of a banana—or about 48 to 52. (Foods with a GI of 55 or more are considered high-glycemic foods.)

Fat

There is a very small amount of fat in dragon fruit. The edible seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, omega 6-fatty acids, and polyunsaturated fat which are all healthy fatty acids.

Protein

Dragon fruit provides about 2 grams per serving.

Vitamins and Minerals

Dragon fruit provides vitamin C and riboflavin, along with about 17% of your daily recommended intake of magnesium—a mineral that is responsible for aiding in hundreds of biochemical reactions in the body. Dragon fruit also contains iron, niacin, and calcium.

Reduces Inflammation

Dragon fruit is rich in flavonoids, one of the many types of antioxidants that can help repair cell damage caused by oxidative stress and reduce inflammation. In turn, this can help the body ward off some chronic diseases.

Improves Digestive Health

Fiber helps to boost satiety, improves digestion and regularity, and may help to lower blood cholesterol. Current FDA guidelines recommend 28 grams of fiber per day. A serving of Dragonfruit provides about 5 grams.

Helps Manage Blood Sugar

In a collection of four studies, dragon fruit appears to improve blood sugar in people with pre-diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, dragon fruit didn't appear to provide significant outcomes, but there was a trend in improving blood glucose with higher doses of dragon fruit.

The Araku Valley of India

India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
