Prickly Pear Benefits

The nopal is one of the most versatile and healthy foods originating in Mexico. These cacti are a source of fiber that in turn promotes the reduction of blood glucose and cholesterol. We say that it is versatile because there are many ways to eat it. It can be raw, cooked or as we offer it at Nochiola: dehydrated with a spicy touch.
