Your Say: Are Superfoods just a fad?

 The Pitaya Fruit

The Pitaya Fruit

We have been inundated by the health benefits of Superfoods for several years now. For example Quinoa was recently (and still is) heralded as a Superfood. Are Superfoods just a food fad? What are your thoughts?

Beth Lipton for Health.com:

Pitaya, also known as dragon fruit, is mild and lightly tart.
Aside from its good looks (that color!), pitaya is loaded with nutrients. As little as 100g can be a good source of fiber and magnesium, and also lends vitamin C, iron, and B vitamins, all for 60 calories. (You already know that brightly coloured fruits and vegetables are loaded with health-boosting antioxidants.)

Note: Pitaya is widely available in Mandurah and can be bought from most major supermarkets and health food stockists.
