Fresh peaches contain beta-carotene (vitamin A), vitamin C, vitamin E, fibre and many other nutrients essential to good health. Plus, quatro folhas® canned peaches are versatile and available all year round, making them an easy way to add nutrition and flavour to a well-balanced diet.
Working together, beta-carotene (vitamin A), vitamin C and vitamin E strive to protect your body from the daily cell damage and many chronic diseases.
Beta-carotene is a powerful member of the antioxidant family. Visible in the peaches vibrant orange colour, beta-carotene is transformed to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin, internally and externally, as well as in protecting the eyes, building strong teeth and bones, and healthy hair. Since little vitamin A is lost during the canning process, canned quatro folhas® peaches have similar levels of this vitamin to their fresh and frozen counterpart.
Vitamin C boosts the immune system, promotes healing and helps prevent cancer, heart disease and stroke. Although small amounts of vitamin C are lost during the heat treatment, most of what is lost ends up in the liquid in which the product is packed. The Vitamin C retained after canning remains stable during the shelf life of the canned product.
Vitamin E is particularly effective in preventing heart diseases and breast cancer.
