Healthy Foods 101: Mangosteen
General Description: Mangosteens grow on trees in warm climates, primarily in Asia. The trees produce a round, palm-sized fruit with a dark purple rind and white flesh. The flesh has a sweet-tart flavor. Mangosteen is popular in desserts in southern Asian countries. The purple rinds deliver antioxidants, in particular the antioxidant xanthones. Up until 2007, it was difficult to find fresh mangosteen fruit in the US, because shipping was restricted to prevent the spread of the Asian fruit fly.
Beverage – When made into a juice, mangosteens deliver antioxidants. It can be drunk on its own or mixed with other beverages.
