Overview of Custard Apple Nutrition

Scientific Name: Annona reticulata


Order: Magnoliales


Family: Annonaceae


Custard apple (Annona reticulata) belongs to the family of Annonaceae. Although the ridges of the fruit are sometimes slightly brown, the inside flesh should not appear brown or black (overripe). To eat a custard apple, you can slice the fruit into pieces, or use your hand to break the fruit open and then use the spoon to eat the flesh. The seeds and skin of a custard apple should be discarded since they are not edible. Custard apple is a vitamin C-rich food (32% daily value [DV]). Vitamin C contributes to the immune system by supporting cellular processes necessary for innate and adaptive immunity. This vitamin is also an antioxidant. Antioxidants help protect our body from harmful free radicals. A well-known benefit of vitamin C is its ability to also make collagen. Custard apples are rich in vitamin B6 (11% DV). Vitamin B6 is involved in immune health and protein metabolism. This vitamin may also be important for brain health, that is, it has the potential to improve one's mood. Custard apples contain potassium (11% DV). Potassium promotes healthy dilation of blood vessels, thereby keeping blood pressure within a normal range. This fruit also has some dietary fibers (10% DV). Dietary fiber plays a critical role in good digestion.
