 The Industry @ a Glance


  • Watermelon known as Citrullus Lanatus botanically is a member of the family of pumpkins and gourds. The round, oblong or spherical watermelon fruit has a smooth, green and yellow, often spotted or striped exterior rind and a juicy, sweet, usually red, but sometimes orange, yellow or pink interior flesh
  • Fruit contains 95% water, 3.3% carbohydrates, 0.25% protein and 0.3% minerals and is also an excellent source of vitamins.
  • Watermelon is rich in antioxidants
    like lycopene which reduce the risk of diseases like asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer and arthritis.
  • Watermelon rind can be used for pickling while its seed kernels are used for adding to sweets.
  • Citrulline, the precursor to arginine, is found in higher concentrations in the rind of watermelons than the flesh
  • When watermelon is consumed, citrulline is converted to arginine through certain enzymes. Arginine is an amino acid that works wonders on the heart and circulation system and maintains a good immune system
  • Citrulline was sold in the U.S. as a sports supplement, even before its use as a food ingredient became possible in Japan.
  • In Europe, citrulline malate has been sold for more than 30 years as an OTC drug available without a prescription at ordinary pharmacies and drugstores.
  • Japanís first health food product to contain citrulline went on sale in October 2007, and citrulline is expected to contribute to maintaining the health of countless people as a food ingredient in the years to come.
