Pindo palm fruit nutritional analysis

Manning, SC(Zone 8a)

Okay, now that I've made Pindo jelly, and have discovered how delicious the little orange fruits are, I'd like to find a nutritional analysis of them. Any ideas where to go for such info? I tried a search for pindo palm fruit nutritional analysis and come up with nothing.
I just realized this afternoon that the fruit I used to make my jelly two days ago was probably not ripe enough. The jelly is good, but the next batch will be better I think, because I just tasted some riper, softer fruit that fell off the tree today and it's much sweeter. So I'll try making more! I also juiced some of the fruit, after pulling the pits out of each one (easier when the fruit is softer); it makes a lovely thick orange juice. It would juice well with apples I think, or blended with banana and/or mango.
What a fun experiment!!!

loquats are great too! if you let them ripen all the way. they taste very tropical once they reach their golden-orange color

Thea, I wonder if anyone on the Palm and Cycad forum might have this information. It must exist in some book somewhere.

That's not really a commerical product so there might not be any info. Why do you want to know? It's going to be mostly carb's.

Oh, just curious!! I've been munching on them, and making jelly with them, and feel a little funny not knowing ANYthing about them!
