Kiwifruit is delicious, exotic, and one of the healthiest fruits you can eat. But what you might not have realised is you can eat the skin as well. In fact, the skin has a higher concentration of antioxidants than the flesh in a kiwifruit.
Three benefits of kiwifruit skins
- They’re rich in antioxidants
- The skin can be great for yours
- They’re rich in fibre
How to eat and prepare kiwifruit skinsAdmittedly, not everyone is fond of eating the skin because of kiwifruit’s hairy texture. If the hair bothers you, some recommend using a clean towel, a vegetable brush, or a spoon to lightly scrape it off6. As for eating the actual fruit, you can either bite into it whole or cut it into slices like an apple.
