Eat pawpaws to get extra supplies of dietary fibre, folate, calcium, iron and the vitamin B complex. Pawpaw contains an enzyme called papain, which helps breakdown the proteins we eat into amino acids. This papain also helps with the treatment of rheumatoid athritis, diabetis, strokes and cancer. Eating a pawpaw after a meal helps you get the best out of it.
The economic potential of growing pawpaw tree for papain cannot be ruled out. The latex of Papaya contains papain, which is used for meat tenderising, brewing and tanning in the textile manufacturing industry.
