PAPAYA seed Benefits | 28th June, 2017

Papaya seeds have recently caught attention as a potential health food, and while much of the evidence supporting the notion is unverified, the seeds are nontoxic and might be worth trying just in case.

Eat as a Raw Supplement
  • Choose a small papaya. Smaller papayas tend to have seeds with a milder taste, while the seeds of a large papaya tend to be more bitter.
  • As you grow accustomed to the taste of papaya seeds, you can begin getting larger fruits instead of searching out small ones all the time. Starting with small papayas can help you get used to the flavor, though.
  • Chew directly on a few seeds. Papaya seeds can be eaten whole, but for the first week or so, only chew on one or two papaya seeds a day. If you eat too many at once, you could end up overwhelming your tastebuds and digestive system.
  • The bitter, pepper-like taste of papaya seeds can be overwhelming at first, and if you rush yourself too quickly and eat too many at once, you might become discouraged from eating any more.
  • Additionally, while papaya seeds are safe to eat, consuming anything in large quantities when your stomach is not accustomed to it can cause digestive upset. Starting slowly is the best way to avoid or minimize this upset.
health benefits of papaya seed
  • Now that you know how to eat papaya seeds, you might still be wondering why you should.
  • For starters, papaya seeds contain high levels of oleic and palmitic acids. Both are believed to help protect your body against cancer.
  • In traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine, papaya seeds are used to detoxify and strengthen the liver.
  • The flavonoids in papaya seeds are believed to help prevent germs from causing infections and are also thought to protect the kidneys.
  • Scoop the seeds out of a fresh papaya. The simplest, most effective way to get papaya seeds would be to buy or harvest fresh papaya and to scoop the seeds out of the fruit with a metal spoon.
  • After digging the seeds out with a spoon, spread them out on one half of a clean tea or dish towel. Fold the towel over to sandwich them in the middle and rub the seeds quickly to remove any remaining, attached pieces of fruit.
  • Place the seeds in a colander and rinse them under running water. Spread them out flat near a windowsill to dry in the sunlight for a few days.
  • You could also dry the seeds using a dehydrator. Follow the manufacturers instructions carefully to avoid drying the seeds out too quickly or not thoroughly enough. When using a dehydrator, however, the total amount of necessary drying time is usually cut from days to hours.
  •  Avoid adding them to smoothies or similarly sweet foods. Even though you could technically use papaya seeds in a smoothie, many people agree that the bitter, pepper-like taste tends to be a fairly unappetizing addition.
