Papaya Spears

Papaya was once considered an extremely rare and exotic fruit. While it is easier to find all over the US today, it is still not always available. Fresh papaya also has a short shelf life. Dried Papaya Spears, on the other hand, are available year-round at Mount Hope Wholesale and ready to eat anytime you crave the juicy sweetness of papaya. Because they are dehydrated, lacking any moisture, they have a long shelf life.

These dried papaya spears are a healthy snack alternative to junk food. They are low-calorie and gluten-free. While added sugar doesn’t top the list of heart-healthy ingredients, our papaya spears are low in sugar and don’t have any unnatural ingredients or preservatives. They are also sulfur-free. The spears have a natural rich pink hue. They are chewy and not too sweet allowing the exotic papaya flavor to shine in every bite.

It takes about 6 pounds of fresh, raw papaya to make one pound of dried fruit. Papaya is loaded with fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Fiber is needed for regulating digestion and gut health while also lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Raw papaya contains a massive amount of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, iron, calcium, zinc, potassium, and magnesium. In it’s dried form, some of the vitamins are stripped during the heating process.

 

Papaya spears are tasty and satisfying eaten on their own. They also pair well with other dried fruits and nuts.  Chop these strips up or leave them as is to add to baked desserts and dishes. Top yogurt and granola with dried papaya.

We also have diced papaya to make it easier for adding to recipes. Or change it up with our sliced mango. Get your bulk papaya spears and never run out.
