Watermelon more nutritious at room temperature

by Elisabeth on Aug. 07th, 2006

The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry reported ice-cold watermelon is less nutritious than watermelon served at room temperature. Chilled watermelons lose nutrients (ex. lycopene and beta-carotene) more readily when compared to watermelon kept at room temperature.
