Watermelon - how many calories does it contain?  Vitamins, properties and nutritional values
  • Melon, commonly known as watermelon, is a seasonal fruit of the gourd family
  • It is native to central and southern Africa. Perhaps the local climate affected the ability of the watermelon to accumulate large amounts of water – the flesh of the watermelon contains more than 90% of it.
  • Watermelon cultivation began around 1500 BC, and in the 12th century, thanks to the Teutonic Order, found its way into Europe.
  • You can find more such stories on the homepage of Onet.pl

Today, watermelon is grown in many tropical countries where it is the main commercial product. There are many types of watermelons in the world: with yellow, orange and white flesh. In Poland, we mainly eat watermelons with red meat, that is, ordinary watermelons.

A 100-gram portion of watermelon pulp contains up to 30 calories, which come mainly from carbohydrates (8 g, including 6 g of sugars). The rest is filled with water and electrolyte. Watermelon also contains relatively large amounts of vitamin A (11% of the RDA in the above portion) and flavonoid antioxidants such as lycopene, Lutein, beta-carotene or zeaxanthin. Among the minerals contained in watermelon we can find, among others, potassium, copper and magnesium. Watermelon, like any other fruit and vegetable, contains amino acids and enzymes.
