Custard-apple is a common name for a fruit that belongs to the Annonaceae family. The family contains over 2000 members. Custard apple trees are large and have drooping green leaves.

It takes between 20 and 25 weeks for fruit to reach maturity. These fruits are widely grown in Maharashtra, India.

The two most known custard-apple varieties are the Pinks Mammoth, the Red Custard Apple, and the African Pride. All are sweet and juicy.

Appearance

Custard-apple is a green fruit with scaly skin and creamy sweet flesh. Note this; dark green custard apples are unripe, yet ripen custard apples are pale green across the fruit.

"Sartenaya" has medium-sized fruits with a waxy and red surface flesh with excellent taste and texture.

Cultivation

The tropical climate is ideal for growing custard apples. Dry, hot, and humid conditions promote fruit growth and set. You can obtain an excellent fruit yield in moderate winter conditions and high humidity during flowering and fruit sets. The plant does not tolerate frost and severe cold. Locations subject to strong winds and heavy rainfall can cause flowers and fruits to fall off and damage limbs. The ideal annual rainfall for growing a custard apple is between 500 and 800 mm. Land preparation for growing custard apple is the same as for any other fruit crop. Plowing the land two or three times with a couple of plows clears weeds. Drainage channels are also performed as part of the preparation of the land [1].

History

In ancient times custard apples were brought across Central America to southern Mexico. They have long been cultivated and naturalized in the south, in Peru and Brazil.

Custard apple was first introduced to tropical Africa in the early 17th century and is now grown as an orchard fruit tree in South Africa. In India, this tree is cultivated, especially in the vicinity of Calcutta, and it grows in many areas. It became pretty standard on the east coast of Malaya and more or less everywhere in Southeast Asia and the Philippines, although it was nowhere particularly appreciated. Eighty years ago, he was naturalized entirely in Guam [2].

It is better to avoid a custard apple on a keto diet because it is high in net carbs. It contains 22.8 grams of net carbs per 100 grams. In addition, this fruit is high in carbs and low in fat, which is the exact opposite of the macros required for this diet.

The macronutrient ratio for keto is 70% fat, 20-25% protein, and 5-10% carbs, which means that most of your foods should be low-carb and high-fat [6].

DASH

DASH stands for dietary approaches to hypertension; it focuses on lowering blood pressure through food choices.

Since custard apple is an excellent source of potassium and sodium, it can help regulate and control fluctuations in blood pressure in the body.

In the case of the DASH diet, you can include custard apples in your list of recommended products [7].

Atkins

The Atkins Diet is a low-carb diet. Proponents of this diet claim that you can lose weight by eating as much protein and fat as you want, provided that you avoid high-carb foods. Low-carb diets are so effective for weight loss because cutting down on carbs and increasing your protein intake leads to decreased appetite, which results in fewer calories.

Custard apple contains a small number of carbs, even less than rice,you can use them in the case of the Atkins diet [8].

Like all foods, you can use custard apple on this diet during eating periods but should be refrained from during fasting periods.

Low Fat & Low Calorie Custard apple is naturally very low in fats; however, a 100g serving of custard apple provides 101 calories.Therefore, this fruit is suited for a low-fat diet but not a low-calorie diet.
Low Carb In a low-carb diet, you can lose weight by eating as much protein and fat as you want, provided that you avoid high-carb foods. Custard apple can be used in this diet due to its low carb content.
Anti Inflammatory

Custard apples are rich in powerful antioxidants, including kaurenoic acid, which is anti-inflammatory and may help lower levels of specific inflammatory proteins in animal studies.

Research shows that the custard in apples contains catechin and epicatechin, flavonoid antioxidants with powerful anti-inflammatory effects. This fruit is rich in vitamin C, making it an excellent source of antioxidants [10].

BRAT Custard apple is not a bland food because it includes insoluble fiber, which might cause bloating and symptoms to worsen in certain people. Custard apples should be avoided on a BRAT diet.

Health Benefits

In this section of the article, we will discuss custard apple benefits on human health.

Cardiovascular

Apple custard is an excellent source of potassium. In addition, this fruit can help regulate and control fluctuations in blood pressure in the body. Custard apple's high magnesium level may aid in relaxing the smooth heart muscle, reducing the risk of a heart attack. In addition, this fruit contains fiber and niacin, which help lower harmful cholesterol levels while increasing good cholesterol levels in the body. According to the study, daily intake of magnesium reduces the risk of high blood pressure by 5%. In this case, custard apple contains a good amount of magnesium [11] [12].

Diabetes

Custard apples are not only low glycemic fruits but also packed with polyphenolic antioxidants. They significantly increase insulin production and glucose absorption, thereby keeping diabetes in check.

Custard apple fruit has many anti-diabetic properties. Custard apple can help fight diabetes If it's taken in small amounts. It's a sweet fruit, but because its glycemic load is lower, it doesn't have much of an impact.

Besides, the presence of antioxidants increases insulin production and slows down the absorption of glucose in the blood. Both the custard apple and its leaves have many anti-diabetic properties, making it a suitable fruit for diabetics [13].

Cancer

Based on several studies, custard apples are rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals. High free radicals can cause oxidative stress associated with many chronic diseases, including cancer and heart disease.
Plus, the acetogenin compounds in custard apples have anti-cancer properties, which means that taking custard apples can effectively treat swelling and inflammation.
Another group of powerful antioxidants found in custard apples is flavonoids, which can help treat many tumors and cancers. Research shows that the antioxidant properties work against cancer cells without affecting healthy cells. In addition, bulletin and antimycin have anthelmintic and anti-cancer properties. They help counteract the effects of free radicals, thereby preventing cancer [10] [14].

Inflammation

Chronic inflammation is associated with an increased risk of many diseases, including heart disease and cancer.

Custard apples are high in antioxidants, such as kaurenoic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties and is demonstrated in animal studies to reduce inflammatory proteins.

Based on test-tube and animal studies, custard apple contains catechin and epicatechin, flavonoid antioxidants found to have potent anti-inflammatory effects [14] [15].

Helps Fight Fatigue

Fatigue can be the result of several factors, including your daily lifestyle as well as illness. Research shows that 100 grams of custard contain 101 calories, about 5% of the RDA. Thus, the fruit will allow you to do your daily activities without unnecessary hassle [3].

Brain Health

Apple custard contains a B-complex vitamin, especially Vitamin B6, which stimulates the brain. The B-vitamin complex controls the chemical levels of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) neurons in the brain. In particular, the B complex helps you calm down, especially when you are under stress or depression. According to research, apple custard may protect your brain from Parkinson's disease [16].

Skin Health

Collagen is an essential protein that gives your skin elasticity and smoothness. According to studies, eating custard apples increases collagen production in the body. esseialMoreover, the compounds present in custard apple slows down the breakdown of collagen, improving the skin's elasticity. Custard apple is an excellent source of antioxidants, preventing blemishes and age spots [17].

Prevents Anemia

Anemia is a condition in which the body has less hemoglobin or red blood cells than average. Red blood cells use hemoglobin to transport oxygen and enable the body to perform many functions. Thus, fewer red blood cells orB makes the lungs and heart work harder to produce more oxygen.

Custard apple helps deal with conditions like anemia due to its rich amount of iron, which can keep your arteries healthy, and your hemoglobin levels up all the time [18].

Digestive Health

1,00 grams of custard apple contains nearly 5 grams of dietary fiber, over 17% of the recommended daily intake. Since fiber is not digested or absorbed, it increases stool volume and helps it move through the intestines.

Besides, soluble fiber can nourish bacteria in the gut and ferment to form short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). These acids include butyrate, acetate, and propionate. SCFAs are energy sources for your body and may protect against inflammatory conditions affecting the digestive tract, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis [19].

Good Eye Health

Custard apples are a great source of antioxidants, especially lutein, that maintain healthy vision by fighting free radicals.

According to studies, lutein intake may keep eye health good and a lower risk of age-related macular degeneration. Moreover, lutein can protect against other eye issues — including cataracts, which are a clouding of the eye that causes poor eyesight and vision loss.

With this in mind, eating lutein-rich foods like custard apples may help maintain eye health and prevent the risk of AMD and cataracts [20].

Pregnancy

Custard apple promotes the development of the child. A pregnant woman who uses custard apple can relieve morning sickness during the first few months of pregnancy.

It is an effective fruit during pregnancy that provides a variety of health benefits. It contains minerals such as magnesium, potassium, copper, and iron. It is also rich in other vitamins such as Vitamin B6 and Vitamin A.

Thanks to the high fiber content of custard apples, the problem of constipation is reduced. You better should avoid Apple custard supporting the digestive system and improving bowel movement [21].

Disadvantages and Risks

While it has impressive health benefits, custard apples contain small amounts of toxic compounds.

Custard apples and other Annonaceae family fruits contain annonacin, a toxin that can affect your brain and nervous system.

Research shows that high consumption of Annonaceae family fruit is associated with an increased risk of developing Parkinson's disease, which does not respond to conventional medications. Annonacin is found in all parts of the cherimoya plant, although it is most abundant in the seeds and skins. Remove the seeds and skins before eating cherimoya to reduce your exposure to annonacin.

Remove the seeds and skins before eating cherimoya to reduce your exposure to annonacin. It's advised to avoid cherimoya if you're concerned about annonacin or if you have Parkinson's disease or a similar nervous system condition [22] [23].

Allergy

Apple custard allergy is a type of pollen allergy. The most common symptoms are burning and itching in the mouth, lips, and throat. Sometimes more severe symptoms, including anaphylactic shock, may appear [24].

Cooking and Use

One of the easiest ways to eat a custard apple is to cut it in half. You can also rip it open with your hands and use a spoon to scoop out the pulp and eat it. You can also add lime juice to the fruit for a spicy flavor. You can slice the fruit and eat it in combination with other fruits as a fruit salad.

The most surprising thing about custard apples is their texture. It is fresh but creamy at the same time. This unique texture opens up virtually unlimited cooking possibilities. Their tropical sweet scent carries all the flavors of warm summer days into autumn.

Home chefs are only limited by their imagination when it comes to custard apples. They are perfect for desserts; excellent sorbets, tarts, and pies spring to mind when I think of custard apples. You can even cook Irish apple cake with custard sauce or french apple custard pie.

Storage, Keeping, and Conservation

Custard apples are great for eating raw, making fruit smoothies, and desserts. However, when custard apples ripen, they are high in sugar content and very liquid, and that's the reason why custard apples don't usually last very long once they're ripe.

Most people wonder how long they will last and what they can do to stay fresh longer.

At room temperature, a ripe custard is stored for 1-2 days and an unripe custard for 3-4 days. A ripe custard is stored for 2-3 days in the refrigerator, and an unripe custard for 5-7 days. Custard apple can be stored in the freezer for up to 12 months.

Children and Custard apple

The natural creaminess of the custard apple makes it ideal for babies, and rightly so - you can give custard apples to newborns over six months old. Dig up the meat and discard the seeds when custard feeding the kids. The pulp can be immediately fed to the baby. The custard apple is known for its cooling properties, so it is best eaten throughout the day [25].

Production and Consumption

The production, commercialization, and consumption of custard apples have increased significantly in the international market due to their nutritional and health properties.

The increased consumption of custard apple is due to its medicinal and nutritional properties and its flavor.

Mexico is the first largest custard producer in the world, followed by Brazil.

One of the bottlenecks in custard production is the high metabolic activity after harvest, which accelerates the ripening process within a limited time and limits the shelf life of the fruit. Due to its high moisture content, it becomes highly perishable, especially in regions with high temperatures associated with no or inadequate post-harvest management and microbial infection, which is a negative factor in its preservation.
