Benefits of the watermelon

Keeps you hydrated

A cup of watermelon contains approximately five ounces of water. Consuming adequate fluid supports circulation, skin health, and digestion. It also helps regulate body temperature, organ and joint function, metabolism, appetite, and waste elimination.

It Has Key Nutrients and Few Calories

Watermelon is lower in calories and sugar than you may think. One cup of watermelon provides 45 calories from 11 grams of carbohydrates, nine grams of which are naturally occurring sugar.

Helps Lower Blood Pressure

L-citrulline, a natural substance in watermelon (particularly in the white part of the rind), has been shown to improve artery function and lower blood pressure by helping blood vessels relax and improving circulation.

Reduces Muscle Soreness

Athletes who consumed 16 ounces of watermelon juice an hour before exercise experienced reduced muscle soreness and a quicker heart rate recovery compared to those who received a placebo drink.

Helps your Skin Health

Vitamins A and C, which are found in watermelon, are important for skin health. Vitamin C helps your body make collagen, a protein that keeps your skin supple and your hair strong.

One review found that a higher intake of vitamin C from food and/or supplements may decrease your chances of developing wrinkles and dry skin.

In comparison to a regular IQF, watermelon, we have given a step further to the traditional IQF with our Prime Freezing System. We successfully avoid fiber breakage during the freezing process so the fruit can be defrosted and be eaten or used as a fresh fruit.

This property allows the fruit to be used both as a frozen fruit as well as a fresh fruit in fruit salads, cups, buffets and desserts.

The objective with this is to expand the used of an IQF fruit and take it to a whole new level by transporting fresh fruit as an IQF fruit.
