Kiwifruit is rich in antioxidants and has other health benefits, according to a recent study.

In addition to being a good source of antioxidants, kiwifruit provides benefits to the digestive tract and to skin, concludes a study commissioned by California kiwifruit growers and other kiwifruit growers and organizations, according to a news release from the Sacramento-based California Kiwifruit Commission.

The study, “Kiwifruit: Overview of Potential Health Benefits,” was written by Keith Singletary, professor emeritus of nutrition at the University of Illinois, and published in the journal “Nutrition Today.”

The study also found that kiwifruit is a rich source of vitamin C, folate, potassium and dietary fiber.
