Fruits should be washed well before eating, and some should be peeled. These include apples that have been sprayed with wax to extend their shelf life and to make them shiny and more attractive. The wax itself is harmless, but it forms a seal over the skin that prevents any pesticide residue from being washed away. It is always better to by locally grown then imported. If you are uncomfortable eating foods that have been treated with pesticides than good option is to by organic produce that has been grown without chemicals.
Canned fruit considerably reduces vitamins content (39 to 57 percent). In addition, many canned fruits are packed in heavy sweet syrup which adds empty calories in for of sugar. Fresh fruit is always better choice.
Freezing method of preservation retains more of the fruits vitamins content than canning; for example, only about 18 percent of vitamin C is lost by freezing compared to 56 percent lost during the canning process.
Juicing is inexpensive and convenient way getting nutrients from fruits. Juicing has become popular in recent years as people have increased their consumption of fruit juices while lowering their intake of whole fruits. This trend is attributed to the increased availability and low cost of fruit juices, as well as awareness that they are more healthful then sugary soft drinks.
Use fruit calorie counter as the complementary tool when think about having fruit. The foods you choose will directly relate to the number of calories you consume. With only twenty to thirty minutes transit time in the stomach, fresh fruit delivers energy to our body without wasting digestive energy.
