A nutritionist debunks myths about fruit salads. Al Marsad Newspaper

Al-Marsad Newspaper – Agencies: Dr. Natalia Nevedova, a Russian nutrition expert, a member of the Canadian Nutritionists Association, revealed some myths associated with fruit salads.

The expert pointed out that there are common illusions among some that fruit dishes contain a high percentage of sugar. But according to her, the benefits of these dishes outweigh the harms.

“First, we don’t get as much sugar as if we were eating sweets. And secondly, with this sugar we get fluids, fiber and nutrients – vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and carbohydrates depending on the type of fruit,” she said in an interview with Izvestia newspaper.

She added, “With fruits, the body gets phytochemicals that have a special effect on the body.”

And she continued, “The talk is about removing the inflammation that leads to the development of various diseases and aging.”

And she added: “From a nutritional point of view, there is no difference. A salad can be made from any sweet or sour fruit. Because it depends on the taste preferences and health status of the person.”

The expert also pointed out that some believe that eating fruit salad can lead to irritable bowel syndrome. But this can happen because of a certain fruit that is in the salad dish, not the salad dish.

She added, the fruit salad can be eaten before and after eating and at any time of the day.

The expert advises not to add any seasonings to the fruit salad, because fruits are rich in liquids, and only nuts can be added to them.
