It contains a very low proportion of water (74.2%), which is often the case in fresh fruits. This indicates that it is a concentrated fruit, with a great nutritive and caloric capacity.
It is very rich in proteins and contains all the essential amino acids, although its proportion is not optimal. In spite of this, their proteins are of great value; both in quantity and in quality.
Their fats are constituted by neutral lipids or glycerides, formed by the union of a molecule of glycerine, with 1, 2 or 3 of fatty acids, being called mono, and triglycerides respectively. The latter two are the most frequent, with a notable difference from the other two types of fats. The most abundant fatty acid is the oleic.
We found in it phospholipids; i.e. fats containing phosphorus in its molecule and which perform important functions in the tissues of the nervous system.
Finally, although in small quantities, we can also find free fatty acids, i.e., not bound to glycerin. As can be seen, their fats are of a high biological value, mostly unsaturated and devoid of cholesterol.
As for its vitamins, stand out the B6, B9, A and E; these two last powerful antioxidants that prevent the aging of the cells.
