Bigger Is Not Better When It Comes To Fruit & Vegetables

I’m sure you’ve all seen the giant sized apples, oranges and peppers in the supermarket. Well it turns that bigger is not better. In a report issued by the Organic Center, they found that as fruits and veggies grow larger, their vitamin and mineral content decreases. They also found that taste and aroma also suffered.

So…buying a smaller organic fruit may not be such a bad idea as you’ll actually be getting more bang from your fruit and veggies.
