Ramafrut grows and markets two varieties of aubergine: the dark-purple variety which is available all year and is grown in Almeria, and the striped variety, produced in Murcia and available in the summer.
Aubergines are recommended for all types of consumers thanks to their high content in antioxidants. They are easily digested and are suitable for people with digestive disorders as they stimulate liver and gall bladder function, and help to reduce cholesterol.
There is no difference in taste between the striped and dark-purple varieties. However, the striped variety absorbs less oil when cooked.
In short, both varieties:
- Have antioxidant properties
- Stimulate liver and gall bladder functions.
- Regulate cholesterol levels.
