citrus family. It has won the champion of sugar content, reaching 12.3%, while most of the others are around 10%. At the same time, the energy of Kumquat is the highest, which is 55 kcal / 100g.

Most of the vitamin C and dietary fiber are stored in the peel, which can maximize the retention of nutrition.

calcium and zinc master: Lemon
