Quince paste propierties

The quince fruit is a good source of minerals such as potassium. This mineral is necessary for proper functioning of the nervous system and muscles. It also activates stomach movements to encourage proper digestion, maintains the balance of fluids in the body to prevent dehydration of the body's cells, and promotes the segregation of insulin to control blood sugar levels for energy. Quince also provides small amounts of Vitamin C.

The fruit also has a high fiber content, including compounds of pectin and mucilage, and tannin compounds called antioxidants. Fiber promotes the absorption of carbohydrates, so it is recommended for diabetics’ diets. Furthermore, it facilitates quick intestinal transit and helps to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. Fiber and tannins both have astringent properties that help control gastrointestinal disorders.

Malic acid is an acid that forms part of plant pigments and also is found in quince. This acid gives flavor to the fruit, has disinfectant properties, and helps with the elimination of uric acid.
