Pitaya Plus Drinks Giveaway and Review



Pitaya Plus launched in January 2011, and have hit the shelves in over 100 Whole Foods country wide. They are also carried in other local, natural food stores including here in San Diego, where their headquarters is located.
What is Pitaya? More commonly known as the Dragon Fruit, it is a low-calorie, low sugar, superfruit that is packed with antioxidants and fiber. It  is currently the lowest sugar juice on the shelves at Whole Foods Market. Their juice is blended with a touch of lemon and coconut water as well, making it not only super nutritious, but extremely hydrating as well. It is also perfect for kids because it has all the nutrition, and barely any sugar.
There is a lot more information on the juice, company, and all that they stand for which can be found at www.pitayaplus.com.

We found Pitaya Plus to be refreshing, not sweet like other juices and the hint of the coconut water came though in taste. Even though the kids didn't seem to care much for it, I liked it.
PitayaPlus is the lowest sugar 100% Juice around, no added sugar
– PitayaPlus is the lowest calorie 100% juice around only 70 calories
– Dietary fiber helps lower cholesterol, Lower blood-glucose levels and improve digestive health, Pitaya has 25% daily fiber.
– Pitaya is rich in antioxidants, helps fight and neutralize free forming radicals.
The “sunshine” vitamin, as it is sometimes referred to, is commonly known for its effect on strengthening the bones and joints in the human body by aiding the absorption of calcium. It also helps the body build up immunity. There's a full 250% Vitamin D3 in here.
– Isotonic formula provides you with essential electrolytes and keeps you hydrated.

There are two very noticeable differences between Pitaya from Central America and Pitaya (or Dragon Fruit) that comes from Asia. When you cut open most of the Pitaya from Asia, you will discover that it is very white on the inside. However, when you cut open a Pitaya from Central America the inside is a dark red magenta. The white varieties from Asia tend to be very bland and do not carry a lot of nutrients. However, the Pitayas from Central America have what some would describe as an earthy strawberry-raspberry taste. The deep color also signifies that the fruit carries a lot of nutrients and is packed with Antioxidants. source
