Fruits and Juices Nutrition Facts

fruit-icon

Fruit is typically defined as the fleshy portion of a tree or plant that is produced from the ovary after flowering. The fruit provides structure to hold the seeds. When we see the beautiful cherry tree blossom, we know the bright red fruit will soon be revealed.

Commonly, people consider this edible substance to be fruit if it is juicy and sweet. Otherwise, it is considered to be vegetable. Our list of fruits and their associated food facts are derived from the United States Department of Agriculture which generally adheres to this common definition.

We can and should be familiar with our personal dietary needs. By permission, our site has developed a free dietary intake calculator (Dietary Reference Intake) based on recommendations established by the Insitute of Medicine. Coupled with our extensive list of foods, we can also become familiar with the nutrients provided by our favorite foods and make dietary choices based on facts.

Our favorite food categories are fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts and seeds. The actual nutritive value of the natural foods depends on many variable factors. Soil condition which, admittedly, has been deteriorating over many generations, is a primary factor. Nevertheless, whole fruits and vegetables still provide the most natural, balanced source of life sustaining nutrition. Read our related topics on this site: FoodFactForm.com .
