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 that 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 weight loss diet. 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. The pears helps to maintain a correct intestinal transit and combat constipation. They have, therefore, beneficial effects for our intestinal flora. The consumption of these fruits is indicated for those with problems in the digestive system and helps to combat fluids retention, thanks to its diuretic effect.

Do not hesitate to include them in your diet as a refreshing snack, because, thanks to its protein content, the pears 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 have 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.
