There has been a recent fad with dragon fruit over the last few years. It could possibly be due to its popularity on Instagram with users from all over the world. There are two types of dragon fruit, or otherwise known as Pitaya. There is one with a white inside and another with a pink inside. Centuries ago, Pitaya was first discovered in Central America. It seems that early missionaries brought the Pitaya fruit to Asia where it has since been renamed to the more commonly known "Dragon Fruit".
Pitaya is known to have many health benefits such as the following:
– Dragon fruit contains a high amount of fiber that helps to regulate diabetes. It can stabilise blood sugar levels by suppressing sugar spikes.
