Cantaloupe, the best melon variety

  1. There is no disputing about taste and so the cantaloupe is the best melon variety there is. The cantaloupe melon is named after the small village of Cantalupe near Rome where this fruit was cultivated in large numbers for the first time in Europe. Originally it is a tropical fruit cultivated in India, Iraq and Afghanistan. The cantaloupe is considered by many to be the tastiest melon variety.

The high nutritional value of cantaloupe

  1. The melon has many minerals and vitamins, but vitamins A and C are extra. Just 250 grams of cantaloupe is enough to reach the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for the human body. For vitamin A, you have to eat 500 grams to reach the RDA. Incidentally, some other researchers say that after eating 160 grams of cantaloupe you already get enough vitamins A and C for the RDA. But that may also be because this RDA differs in some countries. In relatively smaller quantities, the cantaloupe contains vitamins B1, B2, B5 and vitamin K. It also contains minerals: phosphorus, magnesium, iron, calcium and zinc

Cantaloupe as a summer snack

  1. The cantaloupe has a nice, fresh taste and will not get boring easily. It is a perfect snack fruit. You can peel a melon on a hot day and serve it in cubes on a platter. In no time it will be over again. You can serve a melon with mint leaves

Cantaloupe as a diet fruit

  1. There are very few calories in the cantaloupe. The fruit contains a lot of water. You will not feel thirsty after eating this melon. The soda can stand for a while. This means that you can use it perfectly if you think you should lose weight in a healthy way. In general, eating a lot of extra fruit is a good way to diet. There are many antioxidants

Disadvantages of industrial agricultural production

  1. In 2011, 30 people were killed in the US from an outbreak of Listeria, a disease in the same category as meningitis. Normally the listeria bacilli are in meat, but this time the bacteria was traced in melons. The bacteria may have been in the drinking water and the cultivation techniques used may be a cause. Only one farm was responsible for the outbreak. Scientists are not sure why bacteria in everyday food can cause disease outbreaks. Industrial farming is probably the main cause of disease outbreaks. Listeria is primarily a disease that causes fatalities among well-known risk groups: the elderly, newborns and pregnant women. Furthermore, anyone with a weakened immune system such as AIDS patients is a risk factor. There has never been a cantaloupe disease outbreak in Europe.
