Discover how the ‘King of Fruits’ also makes for skincare royalty.
Known for being an indulgence, the thorny durian is lovingly dubbed the ‘King of Fruits’ in Southeast Asia. While on the one hand, eating too much can make you feel a bit ill, on the other, it’s actually a nutritious fruit.
Some may scoff or gag at the mere mention of the fruit while others get all dreamy just thinking about their favourite kind of durian. Love it or hate it, the durian’s custard-like flesh is packed with vitamins like A, B6, C, and folic acid. It also contains several minerals including iron and calcium, while also boasting protein, dietary fats, and water. So perhaps it ain’t that bad to treat yourself to a few pieces whenever durian season comes around.
