White jamun vs black jamun: Which is healthier?

Sonali Sharma

white jamun also known as wax apple, is lesser-known variety of jamun which offers a plethora of benefits. 

As the name suggests, it is white in colour instead of the usual purple and provides a blend of sweet and sour flavours.

White Jamun contains 90% water content, making it a great addition to our summer meals. It will help cool our bodies from within, ensuring we stay refreshed and hydrated all summer long.

White jamun is an excellent source of fibre and can prevent several digestive-related problems.

White jamun contains vitamins A and C. This makes it a wonderful fruit for keeping our immune system strong and skin looking summer-ready.

Whereas, black jamun is loaded with vitamin C and iron, hence increasing hemoglobin. The iron present in the black jamun also purifies your blood and hemoglobin carries oxygen to all the parts

jamun helps in keeping diseases like high blood pressure, heart diseases and stroke at bay by taking care of the arteries

Eating Jamun is beneficial for your gums and teeth as the natural acids in them help fight bacteria and maintain oral hygiene

Jamun contains low glycemic index, which keeps the blood sugar levels normal.
