It has been found that many people today are eating far less fruit and vegetables than they used too.
The average recommended daily quantity should be 2 pieces of fruit, and 200 g vegetables a day.
Fresh fruit and vegetables have the most nutrients, as they get older the nutrients in the product decreases.
One of the main advantages of processed and canned products is that the vitamins and minerals are
preserved in the product at the time of production, and remain until the product is opened and used.
Owing to the speed at which the products are processed, preservatives and colouring agents are unnecessary.
