Nopal, also known as "prickly pear" or "opuntia", thrives in desert locales. The Mexican flag proudly displays the distinctive cactus image. Both the fruit and the cladode, the flat pads of the cactus, are edible. Nopal has been used to make jellies, syrups, soups and salads for hundreds of years. The famous cactus is intended to provide nutritive support for normal, healthy blood glucose and blood lipid levels.
