Mammarancia

Healthier and more good

  • buccia

    Peel

    Sweet-smelling and rich in nutritional properties, it is also excellent for making desserts and infusions. It has digestive and soothing effects and its essential oils have antioxidant properties that benefit the cardiovascular system, lowering cholesterol levels.

  • polpa

    Pulp

    Fragrant, compact and very soft, but not too watery, it melts in your mouth.
    It is the heart of the fruit and each segment gives off an irresistible bouquet of flavours and aromas.

  • succo

    Juice

    Very sweet and fresh, it is rich in minerals and vitamins. It has digestive properties and helps to stabilise the digestion. It also acts as an alkalising agent (despite its slightly sour taste) and has anti-inflammatory properties.
