Kiwi + Melon is a refreshing, cooling drink, with a delicate balance of the smooth, light Melon flavours sitting on the tang of the Kiwifruit. Perfect in the
heat of summer or as a refresher anytime.
We use only high quality, organic Aloe. Nekta Kiwifruit with Aloe Vera has a soft, smooth finish without the astringent taste often associated with Aloe Vera.
Nutritional Basis of Nekta Kiwifruit
A study by Rutgers University New Jersey 1997 found kiwifruit to be the most
nutrient dense fruit commonly available, and since then over 400 published studies
have confirmed it’s value, offering the B vitamins B1,B2,B6, Niacin and Folate, Vitamins C,E,K, and minerals calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc. We add further Vitamin C, so every glass of Nekta Kiwifruit is rich in this essential antioxidant, adding to the naturally occurring antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthan, both beneficial for protecting our eyes against progressive light damage. All Nekta Liquid Kiwifruit drinks contain Pectin, a soluble fruit dietary fibre, contributing to the reputation kiwifruit products have earned as assisting digestion and regularity – a happy you. Kiwifruit is Prebiotic, helping maintain a healthy bacterial balance in the small intestine. Recently, an enzyme in kiwifruit, Actinidin, has been found to assist in the breakdown of proteins, further enhancing digestion.
Nekta uses all the flesh of the fruit, with the rich nutritional value it delivers.
Nekta Liquid Kiwifruit
Nekta Liquid Kiwifruit uses Kiwifruit solely grown in New Zealand, fruit recognised as setting the standard in quality, flavour and nutritional value. We developed and patented a process for turning this beautiful fruit into a satisfying, refreshing fruit drink, protecting the taste, and ensuring much of the natural goodness is retained. This distinguishes Nekta Liquid Kiwifruit from
fruit juices, which are made from extracted juices only. With Nekta, the fruit is in the bottle.
Nekta Liquid Kiwifruit with Aloe Vera
Using the Original Kiwifruit base, the nutritional value is enhanced by Aloe Vera. Called 'The Miracle Plant' Aloe has been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. Today it is still one of the most widely used plant extracts for healing, cleansing the inner body and beautifying the skin. Aloe is itself rich in vitamins and minerals, reinforcing the value of the kiwifruit base, and contains all 8 Essential Amino acids. It helps rebuild collagen to repair damaged cells in the lining of our stomach and intestines, soothing and healing, as well as assisting system regularity, cleansing the colon of heavy metals, and boosting the immune system.
Nekta Kiwifruit + Melon
A blend of Kiwifruit, Rock Melon and Honey Dew Melon, again building on the nutritional base of the Original, Kiwi + Melon has additional benefits of its own. It has “cooling “, anti- inflammatory effect through the carotenoid Lycopene. It also contains Beta Carotene, a colouring pigment that is a precursor to Vitamin A. Melon strengthens the kiwifruit nutritional value, itself containing vitamins A, B6, C and D, and minerals Magnesium, Potassium, Selenium, Iron and Zinc
Nekta Liquid Gold Kiwifruit
A different fruit from a different vine, Gold Kiwifruit is nutritionally similar to the green kiwi, but with some variations in quantities of particular nutrients. Gold Kiwi has slightly more polyphenol antioxidants, more enzymes Lutein and Zeaxanthan which benefit our eyes, a higher level of B Group vitamins. Because we add Vitamin C and fibre to both Green and Gold, in Nekta these levels are similar. The main reason for choosing to drink either Green or Gold Nekta is taste.
Gold Kiwifruit is a lighter taste often thought to be sweeter, with a more complex flavour reminiscent of
a “citrus melon”. It is beautifully refreshing, full of
sub-tropical sunshine, the Golden Taste.
