Health Focus: Watermelons

Each refreshing bite of premium Eagle Eye Produce watermelon is soaked in significant amounts of nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids. They’re so sweet it’s hard to believe they are completely fat-free and very low in sodium. One cup of watermelon only contains about 40 calories!

The red flesh of the watermelon is not the only healthy part of the watermelon! The white flesh near the rind contains more amino acids than the flesh, and recent studies have also found that watermelon seeds are also nutrient-dense. Watermelon seeds have been found to contain significant amounts of protein, magnesium, vitamin B, and healthy fats. Read more about this in the International Journal of Nutrition and Food Sciences.
