Bite for bite, a Zespri Kiwifruit serves up a more nutritional punch than other fruits…

Zespri Kiwifruit delivers an amazingly healthy dose of 20 essential nutrients to directly benefit the body and maintain body function. The high nutrient density of Zespri Kiwifruit is driven primarily by the Vitamin C content, with other key nutrients (fibre, folate, potassium and Vitamin E) supporting its score.

It also contains a wide variety of phytonutrients, carotenoids and enzymes with known digestive benefits. The combination of all these unique attributes works within the body to provide significant health benefits.


*A nutrient adequacy score is determined as the mean of percentage of daily values (amount per 100g/RDA) of 17 selected vitamins and minerals.

The 17 nutrients used in the calculation include: protein, fibre, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, vitamin C, thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine (vitamin B6), folic acid, vitamin B12, vitamin A and vitamin E.

Note: This model does not include measures of bioactive phytochemicals e.g. carotenoids, polyphenolics or antioxidant measures. Without validated RDAs for these compounds, it is difficult to determine any adequacy measures for them.
