The question of which fruit to eat has been a source of controversy for many years, with different reports suggesting different benefits for different types of fruit.
Some experts recommend eating only a few different types, others recommend a wide variety of different types.
The latest research suggests that a variety of fruits are more nutritious than others, and that the same fruits should be eaten by all, according to the Australian Centre for Food Safety and Standards.
The Centre has compiled a list of the most popular fruits, based on the recommendations of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
“Our results show that the consumption of fruits that are low in sugar, fibre and potassium is better for people with type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other conditions,” the researchers said in a statement.
“However, we found that the most recommended fruit is orange and the least recommended fruit, apple, is less nutritious than other types.”
The study was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
The research team analysed data from the FAO’s Global Assessment of Fruit Consumption (GAFUC), which collects data on food, energy, and nutritional content of food, processed foods, fruits, vegetables, and legumes.
They found that, based solely on the FAOS data, orange was the most nutritious of the fruits analysed.
“In general, orange is a good choice for people on a low carbohydrate diet, and those on a Mediterranean diet,” lead researcher Dr Michael Cottrell told the ABC.
“We think that orange is best suited for people who have a high glycaemic load and have a moderate blood glucose.”
Dr Cottrel said that while most fruits were generally thought to be rich in vitamin C, they could also contain phytochemicals, including vitamin E, which could help protect against diseases.
The Australian Centre is currently conducting its own research into whether certain fruits, such as strawberries, have higher levels of vitamin C.
“Some of the studies have suggested that oranges, as a whole, are very good,” Dr Cottres said.
“But what we’ve done here is to see what they’re actually doing with their antioxidants, so that we can say that oranges might be really good for people, but it’s really important to know what the specific effects of the fruit on your health are.”
The FAO is encouraging people to eat a wider variety of fruit, and the Australian researchers believe that the fruit they studied is the most diverse of any.
“It’s a fruit that has been around for hundreds of thousands of years, it’s been eaten by humans for hundreds and hundreds of years and it’s the oldest fruit around, so there’s a lot of evidence to suggest that this fruit has been the source of some of the benefits of human nutrition for a long time,” Dr Sohail Bhatti, the chair of the FAOs research group, said.
Dr Collins said that orange had been an important part of the Australian diet for many centuries.
“Orange has been in the diet of people for thousands of different cultures across the world and it has been used in many different ways,” he said.
“In fact, orange has been considered a symbol of love and love has been found in some of our oldest religious texts.”
This fruit is very rich in antioxidants and phytochemical antioxidants.
It’s really a really good choice.
