Super Gac fruit

Gac fruit

Gac fruit flavour

Gac fruit was strange and beautiful red fruit originating from Vietnam. The fruit is packed full of beta-carotene’s, lycopenes, vitamins and the powerful zeaxanthins. It is a fantastic immune booster, health promoting antioxidant ready to do battle against anything that is not life giving for your body.

Gac fruit is traditionally cooked into glutinous rice to produce a brilliant orange rice dish known as xoi gac. The fruit and various preparations made from it are served as special dishes at New Year celebrations, and at weddings.

“One Japanese study reported in the International Journal of Oncology suggested that Gac fruit may be a cancer-fighter. In this lab study, a water extract of the fruit inhibited the growth of certain tumor cells. This does not mean that Gac fruit is a cancer cure, but it almost surely will help to reduce the risk of some types of cancer. No doubt more science on the anti-cancer properties of Gac fruit will be conducted over time.”
