We’re lucky that mother nature is a masterful visual merchandiser, creating produce in a spectrum of colours.
Did you know certain and fruit vegetable colours indicate an abundance of specific nutrients?
Purple fruits and vegetables indicate they contain high levels of vitamin C and vitamin K.
Orange and yellow fruits and vegetables contain high levels of vitamin C and vitamin E.
Green fruits and vegetables are high in vitamins B, E and K.
There are hundreds of other different bioactive plant pigments each with unique effects. Rather than just isolating one or two, by eating a variety of colourful plants we ensure consumption of a wide range of nutrients, remembering that these vitamins work best as a complete food, not just in isolation.
There’s nothing better than eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables each day.
