Cactus Pear

墨西哥人而言,仙人掌是不可或缺的食物。仙人掌的汁和果實,可保護胃壁,又能促進消化。近年來,有研究報告指出也可用來治癌。墨西哥醫學部門已用仙人掌製成藥片和藥劑上市。被稱為印第安無花果的仙人掌,莖枝多刺,以至動物多不敢接觸它,故又稱霸王樹。這種仙人掌有一種寄生昆蟲叫胭脂蟲,能提煉名貴的紅染料。

仙人掌果在墨西哥是一種普通水果,品種主要有3種:白仙人掌果、紫仙人掌果和酸仙人掌果。白仙人掌果剝皮後,果肉呈淡綠色,水靈靈的,如翡翠。紫仙人掌果皮肉都為紫紅色,果肉汁多,色澤鮮艷,通體晶瑩,如紅寶石。這兩種仙人掌果剝皮即可食用,也可打成果汁喝,甘甜中帶著清香。酸仙人掌果皮肉均為粉紅色,味道如檸檬,極酸,墨西哥人把它當做菜的調料用,或做成果幹,味酸、鹹,跟中國的話梅差不多。

食用仙人掌營養價值及對人體的益處:米邦塔仙人掌屬於高鈣、高黃酮、多糖、低鈉、無草酸的新型蔬菜,被譽為21世紀綠色天然食品。據食品營養專家研製發現,米邦塔仙人掌內含有豐富的蛋白質、礦物質、維生素、胡蘿蔔素及18種氨基酸,同時還含鉀、鈣、銅、鐵、錳等對人體有益的營養元素。“米邦塔”仙人掌還含有許多生理活性很強的藥用成分,如抱壁蓮、玉芙蓉、角蒂仙、包括化合物及黃酮類物質等,這些營養元素在人體內可抑菌、抗炎、免疫、降血糖、降血脂及抗癌等功能,從而增強人體的免疫力。

仙人掌除具有很多食用價值外,還有很多其它用途,在日本、加拿大、新加坡等國家人們常用仙人掌汁液洗澡,這樣可起到消炎的作用。除此之外,仙人掌還多用於藥品、美容品,可起到治療、保健作用,另人更為新奇的是仙人掌可抵抗手機、電腦、電視等電子產品的輻射。
