Papaya Spears

During his famous voyage to the new world, Christopher Columbus reportedly referred to Papaya as "the fruit of the angels". Thank heaven they agreed to share this wonderful fruit with mere mortals. The sweet flavor and butter consistency of the divine Papaya has made the world a better place. Papaya has a unique naturally occurring digestive enzyme called papain, and it's an excellent source of fiber.

NOW Real Food Papaya Spears are a tasty and convenient way to enjoy this angelic fruit and its health benefits.

Because you are what you eat, NOW Real Food has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We're independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real.

Very tasty and healthy

Quite often when I make order on iherb, I put in basket at least one packet of these papaya spears. They are juicy, soft, sweet and very healthy. Great and healthy alternative to sweets and cakes, when you want something sweet :-) Довольно часто, когда заказываю на сайте, кладу хотя бы один пакет с папайей. Сочны, сладкие, мягкие и главное полезные. Хорошая альтернатива конфетам и тортам, когда хочеться сладкого.

Good papaya

Posted by 4783495746289898516 on Jan 24, 2016

I bought these after my chiropractor said that they could be used for teething because they won't break apart and they release an enzyme that helps teething baby's gums feel better. Well, not quite. I ate one myself first, to test out this advice and would not agree. They do break relatively easily and therefore I was not comfortable giving them to my baby to nibble on because they pose a choking risk. Instead I bought rice rusks which he loves and have been great because they also dissolve in his mouth so I don't worry as much about choking. The papaya spears are nice for adults to nibble on though.
