While grapefruit of any color is a healthy addition to your diet, if you opt for pink or red grapefruit over white then you will consume a significant amount more vitamin A – about 26 times more! Vitamin A is essential to vision, immune function and cell growth. In addition, red and pink grapefruit contain lycopene, which has anti-tumor properties.
Personally, I love pink grapefruit and always choose it over white. What about you? I also keep pink grapefruit juice in the house instead of orange juice because I find it to be more refreshing and I also like that it has 7 grams less sugar per serving.
