Exporting Papaya

Papaya Nutrition Concerns?

Digestion: Papayas contain an enzyme called papain that aids in digestion and can also be used as a meat tenderizer. Papaya is also high in fiber and water content, both of which help to prevent constipation and promote regularity and a healthy digestive tract.

Papaya has become known as a leading ingredient in skin whitening products because it contains papain, a natural enzyme that promotes skin renewal and cell turnover. It helps in exfoliating the skin to reveal newer cells, and has restorative properties that soften the skin.

HOW TO STORE

Store at room temperature until ripe, then refrigerate. To freeze: (1) Cut papaya in half and remove seeds and rind; (2) Slice or cube papaya, or cut into balls; (3) Place in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.

HOW TO SELECT

Look for: papayas that are mostly yellow and a little green to fully ripen at home. Papaya is fully ripe when it is bright yellow. Also choose papaya that are firm, yielding to gentle pressure, have smooth skin and are heavy for their size.
