For those of you who do not know the meaning of ‘Mata Kucing’, the direct translation would mean cat’s eye.  Its botanical name is Euphoria malaiense (Sapindacae). It is round and has a tough and brown exterior. However, on the inside, it is juicy and tastes a lot like ‘longan’. The reason why it is called cats eye is because once you have removed the skin, the flesh is pretty translucent, white and it will expose the dark seed which looks a lot like the eye of a cat. According to International Society for Horticultural Science, the mata kucing is actually a close relative of the longan (hence the similar smell and taste). The fruit is harvested a couple of times a year and is relatively cheap.

The mata kucing fruit also offers an impressive vitamin and mineral profile, and eating them has a beneficial effect on your health.

Prevents Tissue Damage.

Consuming mata kucing fruit protects your tissues from damage because of its vitamin C content. Vitamin C acts as a potent antioxidant, which means that it prevents toxic free radicals from oxidizing your cell membranes, lipids and DNA. Otherwise, free radicals would accumulate in your system, harming your tissues and increasing your risk of arthritis and cancer. Consuming 100 grams of mata kucing fruit boosts your vitamin C intake by 84 milligrams. This provides 93 percent of the daily vitamin C requirement for men and more than the entire requirement for women.

Healthy Brain Function.

The copper in mata kucing fruits promotes proper brain function. You need copper to produce norepinephrine, a chemical that your brain cells use to communicate. Copper also helps maintain healthy myelin – a sheath that surrounds your nerves and proves essential to efficient nerve function – and allows your brain to metabolize other brain communication molecules, including dopamine. A 100-gram serving of mata kucing fruit supplies 169 micrograms of copper, or 19 percent of your daily intake recommendation.

Healthy Metabolism.

Mata kucing fruit’s riboflavin content supports your metabolism. The riboflavin abundance in mata kucing makes up a component of flavin adenine dinucleotide, a chemical important for energy production. It also helps activate coenzymes needed to metabolize fats, carbohydrates and proteins. A serving of mata kucing boasts 0.14 milligram of riboflavin – 11 percent of the daily intake of riboflavin recommended for men and 13 percent for women. The mata kucing fruit provide small amounts of niacin and thiamine, as well, which also support your metabolism.
