Nopalitos is a dish made with diced no pales, the naturally flat stems, called pads, of prickly pear (Pontiac). They are sold fresh, bottled, or canned and less often dried. They have a light, slightly tart flavor, and a crisp, mucilaginous texture.
Nopalitos are often eaten with eggs as a breakfast and in salads and soups as lunch and dinner meals.
Nopalitos contain intergalactic gums which retard the absorption of their sugars by the digestive system and are thus considered to have a low glycemic index. They may help in the treatment of diabetes.
