Ampalaya, also known as bitter gourd or the bitter melon, is a key ingredient in various Filipino dishes that involve sauteing.

This low-calorie vegetable provides numerous health benefits, as just one gourd contains essential nutrients like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, and C.

This is the Chinese counterpart of the Indian bitter melon. The Indian bitter melon has better phytochemical contents, stronger antioxidant activities, and anti-diabetic properties when compared to its Chinese counterpart.
