Nopal (the pads from the prickly pear cactus) has played an important role in Mexican culture for centuries and appears in many national dishes. More recently, people have begun to add nopal to beverages because of its health benefits. Nopal is low in sodium and calories but high in soluble and insoluble fiber. It can help sufferers of type II diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, and constipation.
One company taking advantage of nopal is Aguida with their Rancho Natura drinks, the only nopal juice in Tetra Brik in the world. Available in the flavors of nopal, nopal and orange, and nopal and pineapple, are all three are made from 100 percent juice including organic nopal. They are free from sugar and preservatives and contain all the fiber of the nopal and other fruits.
