BENEFITS OF MELONS
Every piece of a melon - peels, seeds, and bioactive
compounds – offered health benefits in a new study. One
certain melon from Honduras – the Galia variety – attracted
researchers’ attention for its antioxidative, anticholesterol, antidiabetic,
antibiotic (against pathogenic bacteria, protozoa, viruses), properties and stimulation of thyroid function. (1) Agricultural
researchers utilized gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis to review
the phytocompounds of Honeydew melon (Cucumis melo L.) extracts. They found
37 compounds in whole fruit and 14 in seed extract. (2) Growing healthy
melons adds to healthy humans!
A NEW MELON COMBINES BEST OF TWO MELONS
Something most of us don’t think about
is that cantalopes (“netted muskmelons”) are reported to be prone
to surface contamination. What did researchers do to try to
tamp down this issue? They created a hybrid by crossing them with
honeydew (“non-netted muskmelons”) to create an orange-fleshed
honeydew melon fruit! This new fruit “Cucumis melo L.” is reported
to be good sources of quite a few human-healthy nutrients.
The researchers studied and explained extensively just where
the nutrients are in each level of the fruit tissues! (3) Amazing
what gets a person‘s attention , is it not?
FUTURE OF MELONS’ NUTRITION
Another interesting side note discovered
in doing research on the nutritional value of
melons is about growing melons (particularly the “carosello
leccese” version of Curcumis melo L.) in a soilless, greenhouse environment with
LEDs as supplementary light. This process didn’t negatively
affect the nutritional value. The bioactive compounds for human
health were still present including methyl gallate (antioxidative
and antiviral), α-tocopherol, and β-carotene. (4) Interesting what today’s researchers
are attempting as our world population grows
to 9.9 billion by 2050 to keep us fed and healthy!
