Have you ever heard of Oscar® Gold kiwifruit? The season has just begun, you should give it a try. It is actually a sweeter version, less acidic than the original green kiwifruits, with smooth skin and golden-yellow flesh. So yummy!
There are several differences between green and gold kiwifruits. Do you know how to distinguish Oscar® Gold? It has bronze toned, smooth and hairless paper-thin skin with an oval shape. It is more sweet tasting and the texture is also a little different.
When it comes to nutrient power, Oscar® Gold is very rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C: it contains more vitamin C than an orange*! It is great for everyone’s immune system, especially as winter is just around the corner. Rich in vitamins, minerals and fibers, it’s the best way to increase your energy and vitality naturally. And if you’re looking for a replacement for a sweet treat, have a gold kiwifruit! Low in calories and high in nutrients, it’s the perfect healthy snack.
