About our Organic Bitter Melon Powder

Bitter melon (Momordica charantia) is an edible, medicinal fruit that is native to Asia, Africa and parts of the Caribbean. It has a very long history of use in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.

Bitter melon is a member of the same family as squash, melon, and gourds (Cucurbitaceae).

Bitter melon is very low in calories and dense with precious nutrients. It is an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, and B3, C, magnesium, folate, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, and high in dietary fibre. It is rich in iron, contains twice the beta-carotene of broccoli, twice the calcium of spinach, and twice the potassium of a banana.
