A Great Alternative for Fruit and Vegetables
Don't like the taste of fruit and veg? Frann's Alt.Health Shop has an array of fruit and vegetable powders. I offer high quality powdered fruit and veg, many organic, to use as a convenient alternative. They're also a great way to sneak extra nutrients into a fussy kid's diet. Rich in nutrients and fibre, our fruit and vegetable powders can also be used for adding flavour.
If you don't like fruit and veg, you're missing out on vitamins, minerals and fibre that those of us who do eat our veggies get from them. For those of you who are "veggie challenged" or who are responsible for feeding the veggie challenged, here is an opportunity to get all that goodness without having to actually eat the dreaded veg.
Not all vegetable powders contain fibre in measurable amounts, but all contain valuable nutritional content. My range includes sea vegetables, a good source of iodine and fibre.
The range of fruit available in the shops is limited by how well it will survive being transported to the store. Vitamin content falls as soon as the fruit is picked, so if it's come a long way, much of the goodness will have gone by the team it reaches your fruit bowl. As with herbs, many people do not have access to fruit bushes uncontaminated by traffic, and some of the more useful "super" fruits won't grow everywhere. Dried fruit powders are made close to the picking area, retaining most of the original nutrients.
