But the most interesting feature of this fruit is its high vitamin C level, with an average of 37 mg per 100 g. Half a grapefruit provides more than two thirds of the recommended daily intake for adults (80 mg), and nearly all for children (60 mg). Moreover, the stability of vitamin C in this fruit is excellent, as the rate remains practically constant for several weeks after harvest (with the protection provided by a thick skin and the acid environment).
Associated with vitamin C are other substances under the term “vitamin P”. These are components of anthocyanin pigments (abundant in red and pink grapefruit), flavonols, etc. Vitamin D has a beneficial effect on the resistance of small blood vessels and is beneficial in case of capillary fragility. It also potentiates and enhances the action of vitamin C of the grapefruit.
The grapefruit provides even in a significant volume just very few calories. It supports effectively the supply of minerals and trace elements, including potassium, calcium and magnesium.
