The Red dragon fruit, also known as pitaya or pitahaya, is a tropical fruit that is native to Central and South America but is now grown in many countries, including Southeast Asia. It is a type of cactus fruit and is characterized by its bright red or pink skin with green scales and white or red flesh speckled with black seeds.
It is rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and is low in calories, making it a popular choice for health-conscious consumers. It is also a vegan-friendly and gluten-free ingredient, making it suitable for a wide range of dietary needs.
Our freeze-dried red dragon fruit is used as a natural food coloring and flavoring ingredient in a variety of food products, including ice creams, yogurts, smoothies, baked goods, and beverages such as teas, juices, and smoothies. It is valued for its vibrant pink color, which can add a unique visual appeal to food products. Its slightly sweet and tangy taste can also enhance the flavor.
Did you know that the red pigment in the fruit is caused by the presence of betacyanins, which are also found in beets and red cabbage?
