Health benefits of Quince
Quince is a rounded and yellow fruit, very similar to pear. It is one of the few edible fruits that are not consumed raw, as it has a very hard and rough pulp, with a bitter taste.
This fruit has several advantages, since it is rich in vitamin A, C, B and E complex, malic acid, pectins, minerals such as potassium, iron and copper.
It is thanks to the quince that we have the opportunity to enjoy the tasty Quince Paste, a very Portuguese delicacy made with love by Quinta de Jugais.
In addition to the Traditional Quince Paste, take the opportunity to get to know our Quince Paste with Walnut or the original and delicious Quince Paste with Reineta Apple. We also have another recent novelty: Organic Quince Paste.
