Calories In Kumquats


Calories in kumquats

This fruit is small, so a medium kumquat only weighs about 19 grams and has only 15 calories according to the US CDC, making it a perfect little snack.

The nutritional content is also low, with only 3 grams of carbohydrates (2 grams of simple sugars) one gram of fiber, almost 200 mg of potassium, and about 15% of Daily Value for vitamin C.

Choosing a ripe kumquat

Choose one that is firm and golden orange, and wash them before eating.

Since the rind is sweet and the center is sour, many people eat the whole fruit raw for the contrasting tastes.

They make excellent fruit sauces, preserves, jams, candy, even pickles.

They are also used to garnish salads, exchanged for limes in cocktails, and are even added to green tea.

You can add them to seafood, chicken, or rice dishes as a chutney, or make a quick salsa combining them with red onions and cilantro.

They will store for several weeks in the refrigerator.

Used in China

Originally from China, they are now grown in warm climates in the Americas, Asia, Southern Europe and India, Australia, and South Africa.

Common varieties include Hong Kong, Jiangsu, Marumi, Meiwa, and Nagami kumquats.
