And aside from nutrients it can also be made as santol juice. My favorite is when you peel it and you eat it with salt. Bad one thing I don't like about it. That after you eat it, you will have a bad breath so better take a mouthwash or brush your teeth after wards.

Santol fruit is rich in vitamin - C and minerals like Potassium. It's rind is rich in starch and carbohydrates too. Just don't eat too much because it can activate an acidic attack on your stomach.

Santol - Ripe Santol
Santol is a tropical fruit which has a combination of sweet and sour taste. We love it with salt. Now here I am adding a photo of santol. I hope I could successfully attach this to this post for you to have a better idea of what santol fruit looks like. For all you know this fruit is also found in your locality but of different name only.

Like all other fruits, santol is rich in Vit. C, having that sweet-soury taste. It is commonly in season during summer and they say that the kind they call Santol Bangkok is the biggest and the sweetest.
