Websites showing nutritions over fruits and vegetables?

Post by hurly » Sat Jan 28, 2006 5:30 pm

Does anybody in here happen to know of any good sites with a table/list over fruits and vegetables and their nutrition values?
I'm asking this because I want to see what fruit/vegetable contain most nutritions so that I can buy :)

I do take a multivitamin pill and fishoil pill everyday. Is that enough?

If you have a balanced diet yes. Well, don't know a web site, but if you eat bananas, apples, grapes and oranges often and have a balanced diet on top it should be enough

Guava is a tropical fruit which rich of vitamin C. It is issued that the vitamin C level in guava (especially the red one as shown in my figure below) is more than the one in orange. I like to consume it fresh or blended for ice juice..hmm yummie :)

Guava = Psidium guajava (Fam: Myrtaceae)

Doesn't all fruits contain antioxidants...?
So I guess it doesn't matter what kind of fruit you eat if you want anitoxidants?

Of course all fruits contain antioxidants, but some have more and some have less. Apples contain a special kind of antioxidant called bioflavonoids quercetina that is more effective that vitamin C in some cases. Red apples have more of them than green apples

Looks like a water-melon

Could be, but actually guava flesh is harder, thicker, and drier then watermelon. The biggest one is about 10 cm in diameter 8)
