Pears are known practically in every corner of the world, whether they are produced locally or, as in the case of many countries in Latin America, they are imported from countries with climates with the perfect seasons to allow their cultivation.

Like many other fruits, pears are composed mainly of water. They contain carbohydrates, as well as fibers and protein. For those of us who are always looking for the perfect diet foods, it should be noted that this refreshing fruit has 0 percent fat, so it is ideal to include it in our diets for weight loss. It contains minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron and iodine, as well as vitamin C, vitamin B3, B1, B2, B6 and B9 and beta-carotene.

Thanks to its high-water content, it is a moisturizing fruit. Helps to maintain a correct intestinal transit and combat constipation and has beneficial effects for our intestinal flora. It is indicated for those with problems in the digestive system and helps to combat fluid retention, thanks to its diuretic effect.

Do not hesitate to include it in your diet as a refreshing snack, because, thanks to its protein content, it helps to calm the sensation of hunger.

The dessert that I present to you on this occasion is a dessert that never goes out of style and that has an excellent presentation, without mentioning its flavor.

If possible, try to use pears of organic cultivation, to take advantage of their qualities as much as possible while avoiding the risks of mass production to the environment.
