Dried pomelo peel is processed from the rind of fresh pomelo fruits. In traditional folk, the peel of pomelo is used for treatment of high blood triglycerides and cholesterol. In Vietnam and other Asian countries, the peel is used for making several food recipes (like vegetarian spring rolls, halo-halo) after being reduced in the bitterness and astringency. It is also cooked in water to shampoo because the antioxidant components in the peel nourish the hair. The strong taste and hard texture make it difficult to eat unless certain processing steps are applied.
Health benefits of pomelo peel
Not only being edible, the peel has proven to bring enormous health benefits thanks to its valuable components. Naringin compound is known to reduce blood triglycerides and bad cholesterol. The peel provides quite an amount of dietary fibers which, among many functions, can improve intestine microbial flora and lower the absorption of cholesterol and fat. Rinds of fruits are known to be rich in antioxidants and other beneficial metabolites. Essential oils in the peel are strong antimicrobials which can inhibit growth of pathogens.

The issue is that it is difficult to eat, unless certain processing steps are applied, so people normally discard away.
Our dried pomelo peel
The fruits for being processed are grown with GlobalGAP standard in Mekong region of Vietnam. After being sliced, an intensive washing in hot water is applied to reduce the bitterness and get rid of dirt. Certain amount of sugar and very little citric acid (as an acidity regulator) is added to improve the taste. We apply drying after that to reduce moisture content to make the product stable for a long time. The taste is a ‘God-gift’ (difficult to describe but you would surely love it. The natural taste and flavor together with a bit sweet and little sour make it very nice to eat). Your consumers would appreciate that you have introduced this dried pomelo peel product to them.
