Tips for having a fresh fruit and green vegetable | How to choose vegetable and fruit like a pro | Healthy Self-Love


Fruits and vegetables are a source of fiber for our body, but be careful in choosing fruits!

Generally, if you shop for vegetables or fruit, we will choose the most beautiful looking fruit, right? Not only the freshness but also the color or appearance.

As a reminder to everyone, we need to be vigilant when we find a fruit that looks bright. It is not impossible, the fruit has been colored.

As long as the dye used is still food grade or within safe limits, it really doesn't matter. The problem occurs, if the dye used is not for food.

Another thing to watch out for, especially for imported products, is the presence of wax layers. For example, contained in zucchini, paprika, eggplant, potatoes, apples, and oranges.

According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a government agency in the United States that regulates the standardization of food and medicine, coating wax in fruits to be imported is legitimate and permitted. The reason is that the wax coating is to maintain the quality and appearance of the fruit so that it is resilient and scratch-resistant.

Naturally, these fruits will emit wax after arriving at a certain maturity. Only fruits are exported to other countries that took time for it to arrives at the destination. For this reason, certain fruits are coated with wax.

The content of pesticide residues and toxins in vegetables and fruits are making consumer feared as they become the cause of many harmful diseases such as cancer.

However, this response is less accurate because pollutants and food additives at low levels can only be hazardous but not directly affect the human body.
