General Information:

  • Native to Cambodia, Pongo fruits are enjoyed for their sweet and sour taste, both raw and in pickled dishes. Pongo Fruit brings a burst of flavor, nutritional goodness, and potential health benefits to Cambodian cuisine, making it a valuable and versatile ingredient.

Health Benefits:

Rich in vitamin C, providing over 400% of the Daily Value in one peeled fruit, and essential minerals like copper and potassium. Packed with 6 grams of dietary fiber, supporting digestion, gut health, and potential weight management.

With 230 calories per peeled fruit and a mix of protein and fiber, Pongo may help in weight loss by promoting fullness on fewer calories. Abundant in antioxidants like vitamin C, naringenin, and naringin, combating oxidative stress for anti-aging and heart-healthy benefits.

Studies in rats suggest potential benefits for heart health, but more research in humans is needed. Pongo, especially its essential oils, shows antibacterial and antifungal properties, effective against bacteria and fungi. More research is needed.

High antioxidant content, including vitamin C, may contribute to anti-aging effects by preventing skin damage. Early studies suggest potential anti-cancer properties, especially in skin and other cancers, but more research in humans is crucial.
