GREEK KIWI : In dried form from 4G
China is considered the predominant hinterland of kiwi since ancient times. The most well-known species grown in Greece is called actinidia chinensis. The plant was native to China and travelled after the 19th century in Britain and 1906 in New Zealand. Its name Kiwi comes from the homonymous bird, which is a national symbol of New Zealand where it lives exclusively. This name was taken by kennel Hayward Wright (1873-1959), who experimented with the plants and managed to create the variety that is known today.
In our country, it was first cultivated in 1973 in the plain of Pieria, where it was acclimatised and adapted by acquiring special qualities and is referred to as “fruit of Olympus”, while the “Olymp Kiwi” logo has been approved.
Kiwi is not only beneficial to health but also has a particularly low caloric value. Its high nutritional value is a good reason to put it in our diet as it can provide us with many valuable nutrients.
Initially, kiwi is an excellent source of vitamin C, which exerts strong antioxidant action and strengthens body’s defense.
In fact, kiwi has the highest vitamin C content in any other fruit and almost twice as much as orange.
At the same time, it is rich in fiber, folic acid and potassium and contains significant amounts of vitamins A, E and K.
On the other hand, its antioxidant content is particularly high, especially carotenoids, lutein and anthocyanins, which help to neutralize free radicals and protect the body from the negative effects of oxidative stress.
