The importance of fruit in our daily diet

In order to have a balanced and healthy diet, it is recommended to consume a minimum of three fruits per day.

Fruit should be a staple in our diet as it provides us with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are essential for our body to function properly. Additionally, containing fiber, fruits give us a feeling of satiety which will prevent us from snacking throughout the day.

But the truth is that there are many myths surrounding the consumption of fruit, which is why today we are here to debunk them. 

The most common myths about fruit consumption

Fruit is bad because it contains sugar. The sugar in fruit is fructose, a sugar that is naturally present in fruit and has not been shown to have negative effects. Additionally, we must remember that natural sugar is not the same as sugar added to processed foods. Added sugar has no nutritional benefits, whereas the fructose found in fruit comes with vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Fruit makes you gain weight at night. We must focus on the fact that a single food item does not cause weight gain, but rather it is the sum of all our actions (both our eating habits and our level of activity) that will determine whether we gain weight or not. That being said, there is no scientific evidence to suggest that eating fruit at night causes weight gain. Regardless of the time, that fruit will have the same number of calories.

Eating a lot of fruit can cause diabetes. The sugars present in fruit are not "free sugars" (all those added sugars found in processed products). As we have mentioned before, fruit contains fructose, which does not have much effect on blood sugar (unlike a chocolate bar).

Having said that, you will have noticed that eating fruit is always healthy, no matter how it is eaten or at what time. At Anela, we know that the current pace of life in society leads us to have little time to plan our meals, which is why we recommend always having our products on hand. 100% natural spoon fruit without additives, preservatives, or added sugar.
