If pineapple is known as the “king” of fruits, guava is considered the queen. With its unique taste, flavor and health-promoting qualities, fruit is easily classified as a new functional food category, often labeled as a “superfruit”. The different varieties of guava grown around the world can vary widely in flavor, pulp color, and seed composition.

“Guava is a tropical fruit, high in vitamin C and a great source of fiber,” says Ella Davar, a New York-based general nutritionist. Guava and guava leaves contain beta-sitosterol, quereetine, guaijaverin, leucocyanidin and avicularin. Guava leaves also contain volatile essential oils (caryophyllene, β-bisabolene, aromadendrene, β-selene, nerolidol, caryophyllene oxide and Sel-11-en-4a-ol and ethanol). Ripe guava is rich in vitamin C and polysaccharides such as fructose, xylose, glucose, rhamnose and galactose. The roots contain arjunolic acid, tannin and organic acids.
