Detox and revitalizing fruit juice
Juice takes fruit to our palate in a liquid form. Juices help detox and revitalize our body and is a complete drink that helps us on a daily basis. Juices from Málaga taste like Málaga, like its lands and its fruits, from Axarquía to Valle del Guadalhorce. Juices provide our body with easy absorption nutrients and maintain the nutritional values and qualities of the fruit they are made with.
They are, therefore, source of vitamins, potasium, carbohidrates and mineral salts. Each juice, depending of its flavours and ingredients, will have different health benefits. Orange juices, for example, have a high content of vitamin C, useful to fight defences. Banana juice, however, has a high content of potatium, which is recommended to activate cell functioning and reduce muscle fatigue.
Subtropical fruit, now also in juices
Traditionally, there have been some flavours that are common to juices from Málaga: orange juice, peach juice and pineapple juice. There are also other flavours that allow us to enjoy the delicacy of fruit flavour in liquid form: strawberry, grape, watermelon, melon, tomato, pear, apple… But if there are flavours that have become famous during the last years, those are subtropical fruit flavours. Subtropical fruit in Málaga are mostly grown in the region of Axarquía.
The main fruits are mangos, avocados and custard apples. Now these fruits can also be enjoyed in the form of mango juice, avocado and cinnamon juice and custard apple juice. Málaga has been the first province to distribute prickly pear juice, a fruit with great richness of healthy fibres that help prevent diabetes, cholesterol and protect gastric mucosa. Prickly pear juice is also recommended for sporty people because it has a high content of protein. The production of this product was encouraged by Sabor a Málaga so as to promote the flavours of Axarquía.
