Market Outlook

Carambola is a native fruit of Sri Lanka and Indonesia, and is consumed throughout the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, Micronesia, and a few parts of East Asia. Carambola is a rare commodity but contains a high level of nutrition. Carambola is now widely used for cooking purposes, and is also used in food preservation, due to which, the demand from the food industry is increasing enormously. Carambola contains a high amount of vitamins, which helps in the healthy metabolism of the body and maintains a healthy immune system. Although carambola has low amounts of crucial minerals, it is rich in copper content, and also helps lower the cholesterol level of the body. In India, the demand for carambola from lactating mothers is very high, as it is believed to stimulate the flow of milk and also help cure body ache and headaches. Owing to carambola’s properties such as healing and as an antioxidant, it is significantly used as an ingredient in the cosmetic industry.
