In India, raw papaya is very popular as a vegetable in several states like Odisha, West Bengal and once it is ripe it is eaten as a fruit.

In this article we will discuss the nutritional value of ripe papaya and the various health benefits it offers.

A fully grown, naturally ripened papaya consists of folate, vitamin A, fiber, copper, magnesium, potassium and pantothenic acid.

These nutrients are extremely useful in performing several important bodily functions even though they are required in micrograms.

A medium sized papaya which is approximately 275 grams consists of 1.3 grams of proteins, 30 grams of carbohydrates, 4.7 grams of dietary fiber, 119 calories and 21.58 grams of sugar.

Papaya contains antioxidants which protect the heart from several risks. Papaya has papain and chymopapain which help in digestion and also help with inflammatory conditions like arthritis and asthma.

Papaya is also loaded with vitamin C which is a booster for the immunity system.

Lycopene, a natural pigment present in papaya, protects from prostate cancer.

There are several ways one can eat a ripe papaya.

You need to peel off the skin of the papaya and de-seed it properly. If you notice milky appearance on the pulp of the fruit, wash it off and then eat it.

You can make papaya smoothies and papaya salads.
