Sweetsop (sugar-apple)


Sweetsop always known as sugar-apple in other countries, is native to tropical Americas and the West Indies. Sweetsop is a different fruit from custard apple (I will post pictures of custard apple, soon). Sweetsop is very sweet, hence the name ‘sweetsop’

Persons with chronic or end-stage kidney disease are usually on a low-sodium, low-potassium diet with fluid restrictions in addition to modified protein (higher or lower than normal depending on the amount of kidney damage).

Unfortunately, fruits to avoid include papaya, coconut water and jelly, sweetsop, soursop, custard apple, ripe banana, guava, pomegranate, dried fruits (raisins, prunes, currants, mixed peel, mixed fruit, cherries) because they are high in potassium. Read about Jamaican Julie mango
