The pulp, which hides underneath the skin of the melon, represents a rich mixture of the basic components necessary in our diet.
Melon like all fresh fruit is important as it supplies essential quantities of glucides, vitamins and mineral salts, sodium, calcium and phosphorous, organic acids and fibre which are of assistance in preventing nutritional imbalances and deficiencies.
From a dietary point of view and for its low caloric content, melon is a fruit which can be recommended to everyone.
