It contains Gurmarin, a polypeptide considered to be similar to bovine insulin, which has been shown in experimental studies to achieve a positive sugar regulating effect by suppressing the neural response to sweet taste stimuli.

Melons are low in calories, with just 64 calories in a 1-cup serving of honeydew balls and fewer calories in cantaloupe, casaba or watermelon balls. At the same time, melons are high in essential vitamins and minerals. They contain almost no fat or saturated fat, making them an excellent choice for snacks or a side dish. Vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin that plays an important role in the growth and maintenance of all tissues in your body. It functions in wound healing and repair of cartilage, bones and teeth. Adults should receive 90 mg per day of vitamin C. A 1-cup serving of cantaloupe provides 65 mg of vitamin C. One cup of casaba melon provides 37 mg of vitamin C, and honeydew provides 30 mg. Vitamin A is important for healthy teeth, skin, bone and mucous membranes. It helps the vision system by promoting retinal health. Insufficient vitamin A may lead to poor functioning of the immune system. Cantaloupe is high in vitamin A, with more than 25 percent of the recommended daily amount in a 1-cup serving.

Despite popular belief that melon is made up of only water and sugar, watermelon is actually considered a nutrient dense food, a food that provides a high amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for a low amount of calories.Melons have become synonymous with summer and picnics, and for good reason. Their refreshing quality and sweet taste help to combat the heat and also provide a guilt-free, low maintenance dessert for kids and adults alike to enjoy.Along with cantaloupe and honeydew, melons are a member of the botanical family Cucurbitaceae. There are five common types of watermelon: seeded, seedless, mini (also known as personal), yellow and orange.

Melon detoxes. As you know, the pretty melon helps gently cleanse the intestines from all the junk that very carefully hides a slender and charming waist.

Melon

Melon can be used in salads and even in soups, but it is a very sweet fruit and it is excellent in desserts. So I want to share a recipe of one of my favourite desserts.
CREAMY CANTALOUPE PANNA COTTA WITH MIXED BERRIES
1 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded, flesh cut into large pieces
1 tablespoon unflavored powdered gelatin (1 packet plus ½ teaspoon)
½ cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt, see note
¾ cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons honey, divided
Coarse salt
1 cup blackberries, see note
1 cup blueberries, see note
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
Note: If you want it sweeter, use ½ cup heavy cream, half-and-half or whole milk instead of the yogurt. Use the ripest berries you can find; raspberries or strawberries would also work.
1. In a blender, purée cantaloupe until smooth. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, pressing lightly on solids (you should have about 2 cups of purée); discard solids. Pour 1/3 cup juice into a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin over the top; let sit five minutes. Meanwhile, whisk yogurt into remaining juice.
2. In a small saucepan, bring cream, 2 tablespoons of the honey, and a pinch of salt to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk in gelatin mixture and cook until gelatin dissolves, about one minute. Whisk cream mixture into yogurt mixture and divide among six (6-ounce) bowls or ramekins. Refrigerate until set, 2½ hours or overnight.
3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine remaining 1 tablespoon honey, blackberries, blueberries and orange juice. With the back of a fork, lightly mash berries to release their juices. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
4. To unmold panna cottas, run a small knife around the outside edge of each bowl and invert onto a serving plate, gently shaking from side to side to release. Serve with berries and juices.
