Another Super Food from Peru

by admin on September 22, 2011

Peru is known for its exceptionally diverse climates, and the array of fruits and vegetables that are grown there. From lucuma to cherimoya, exotic fruits can be found throughout the country. Some of the fruits in particular are more than just delicious, however, and offer substantial health benefits. For example, the sanky, pronounced son-key, contains ten times more vitamin C than an orange. The fruits grow on top of cacti, and are carefully picked by farmers on small ladders. The fruits have been used to rehydrate shepherds in the fields, and could become a popular health food in other countries if the efforts of Peruvians are successful. They know their country has a lot to offer the growing worldwide health industry, and hopefully they will be successful in marketing their produce and other exports.
