Fruits or vegetables: which is better?

Do you, dear reader, consider vegetables and fruits to be equally healthy? It is one of the most common fallacies about nutrition, because they are far from it.

In our new series, we want to chronicle the important differences and help you make better nutrition decisions.

Fruits and vegetables are not equally good for health

When we talk about healthy eating, fruits and vegetables are always mentioned as equally healthy. They are not. We believe that vegetables are significantly higher quality than fruit.

Because unlike vegetables, fruit contains high amounts of a substance that, among other things. can put a lot of strain on the intestines:

The fruit sugar (fructose). Meanwhile, fructose is even held responsible for some chronic diseases in the whole organism.

Even the German Nutrition Society has become more cautious in recommending fruit.

What makes fruit a critical food?

In the past, fresh fruit was available to us only when it could be harvested from the local trees and bushes. There was little variety, the fruit was not overbred, not loaded with ripening accelerators, and only available at certain times of the year.

Nowadays there is a very wide range of fruits all year round, most of them imported. We find exotic fruits of all kinds in the fruit counter, as juices, smoothies, chutneys, purees, jams, preserves, in yogurts and, in dried form, as snacks, in mueslis and bars. Many of them consist of high amounts of hidden sugars.

For example, 100 g contain:

  • Bananas: 21 g fructose
  • Grapes: 17 g fructose
  • Lychee: 17 g fructose
  • Figs: 16 g fructose
  • Pineapple: 13 g fructose
  • Mango: 13 g fructose
  • Pears: 12 g fructose
  • Nectarines: 12 g fructose
  • Apples: 11 g fructose
  • Cherries: 11 g fructose
  • Plums: 10 g fructose
  • Watermelon: 6 g fructose

Dried fruit is even higher in sugar. Apples, dates and raisins, for example, contain up to 70 grams of sugar.

Berry fruits are the lowest in sugar. Strawberries, blackberries and raspberries, hit with a maximum of 5 mg. At best, the lemons are lower.

Fructose is about ⅓ sweeter than glucose (grape sugar). If you feed your children lots of fresh fruit, you condition them to like sweet foods from a very early age. Nowadays, since the taste of particularly sweet fruits is preferred, fruits with more and more sugar are bred.

Fructose from fruits is joined by that from soft drinks, bread, sweets, ready-made sauces, soups, canned foods, etc., to which high amounts of the sugar are added. Excess glucose is also converted to fructose. So at the end of the day, the balance of fructose can reach a worrying level.

And how much fructose is contained in vegetables?

Among vegetables, there are also forms rich in fructose, such as cabbage, kohlrabi, eggplant and carrots. However, the sugar levels are nowhere near those of fruit.

The highest concentrations are about 1.3g/100g of vegetables. In contrast to fruits, the positive vital substance content outweighs the damage caused by the fructose.
