The nutritional profile of the karonda is quite impressive, being rich in vitamin C, B vitamins, and iron. The presence of pectin in the fruit makes it beneficial for improving digestion. The soluble fiber helps in improving the function of the digestive system. These also help in improving appetite as well and curbing untimely cravings.
