What makes Papaya So Special and Unique?

1. Every part of the plant can be consumed and has health benefits:
a) Leaves are high in Papain Enzyme, Fibrin Enzyme, Vitamins C, E and K.

b) Fruit powder has less papain and fibrin than leaves but more Vitamins C, E & K. Lots of high end cosmetics products use papaya fruit powder. Great facial mask to improve acne, clear skin and rejuvenate skin. Awesome in smoothies. Low sugar content makes papaya not very sweet fruit. Tropical acquired taste.

c) Seed contains carpaine enzyme which kills parasites and their eggs, helps with detox and cleanse. 

Papaya should not be processed at high temperatures above 180 degree since that would kill off all useful enzymes in the plant! This is why we stay away from high heat and use sun drying where possible and High Pressure pasteurization when needed.
