Another study3 found that aside from the high antioxidant content, bignay fruit also had high levels of vitamin C. This in itself shows that bignay has a lot of nutritive properties, and can be a good source of vitamin C.
Lipote fruit has also piqued the interest of researchers
Another fruit that the researchers studied is the lipote. While not as popular as the bignay, they found that the fruit also has similar benefits. They found that the fruits and seeds of the lipote also had high levels of antioxidants. Interestingly, the seeds of the lipote had higher levels of antioxidants compared the flesh of the fruit.
Compared to bignay, however, farming the lipote can be more difficult. This is because the bignay comes from a fast-growing shrub, while the lipote comes from a tree that takes years to grow. However, the lipote is endemic to the Philippines, so it can still be turned into a viable crop for farmers.
