Fruit optimally supplies the body with important vitamins and minerals. However, some fruits are even healthier than others. Even if there is almost no difference in taste, there are still differences. A number of fruits in comparison.
Apple – Pear
Clear vitamin winner: the apple! Compared to the pear, the apple contains 3 times as much vitamin A, 2 times as much vitamin C, and 20% more vitamin E. It is important that 70% of the vitamin is immediately under the skin. Therefore, eat the peel as well. Finally, red apples have a higher presence of vitamin C than green apples.
Plum – Nectarine
Both provide a large portion of potassium. But nectarines lack a substance that makes plums a real health bomb: Anthocyanin. This is mainly in the skin of the plum. It protects against cancer and heart attack.
Green limes can be found more and more in the supermarket. A specialty among lemons. The nutritional value of both citrus fruits is almost identical. But the lemon contains 25% more vitamin C per 100 grams.
Grapefruit – Orange
Both are vitamin C bombs, but in vitamin A the grapefruit leads. The bitter dust of the grapefruit can regulate blood levels and make pounds disappear.
Peach – Apricot
Both fruits provide beautiful skin, hair, and nails. The reason for this is the high presence of vitamin B. However, the apricot contains more of this but also contains more calories. Those who watch the line should take a peach and just take a few more.
Papaya – Mango
Both exotic fruits provide enough vitamins and minerals. Still, the papaya is at the top. It contains more than double the amount of vitamin C and 30% more potassium, which strengthens the heart. In addition, papaya contains 12 calories and mango 55, per 100 grams.
Black Currant – Red Currant
Darker and even healthier than the red family: blackcurrant contains 25% more iron and potassium (for the muscles), twice as much calcium, and 6 times as much vitamin C.
Honeydew Melon – Watermelon
Yellow is healthier than red: at least, in terms of the flesh. The honeydew melon has 20 times more vitamin A and 5 times more vitamin C than the watermelon. The honeydew melon is also preferred in terms of minerals.
Sour Cherry – Sweet Cherry
The sour cherry contains around 30% less sugar than the sweet cherry. And therefore fewer calories. In addition, the sour cherry contains 12 times more vitamin A.
Blackberry – Blueberry
The blackberry clearly contains more vitamins A, B, and C, calcium, and potassium than the blueberry.
