With the summer season approaching, cantaloupe melons are at their best. Diet Center program may allow for 1 cup cantaloupe as 1 serving of fruit. Cantaloupe is an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C, which help with wound healing and the immune system. Cantaloupe is also a good source of folate (providing 14% of the RDA) and potassium (providing 13% of the RDA). Additionally, you can obtain vitamin B6, magnesium, and niacin from cantaloupe. When selecting cantaloupe, look for melons that have a slightly golden undercolor and a pronounced netting on the rind. There should be few cracks at the stem and the melon should have a sweet aroma. Not only should you get better flavor from fresh cantaloupe, but optimal nutrition as well!
