Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Beta-carotene, vitamin C, and fibre are found mainly in produce, that is, vegetables, fruits and grains. Unfortunately, grains, which have high content of fibre, are not normally consumed whole, and the most fibrous part might actually miss the alimentary tract. Fruits, which have high content of Vitamin C and are usually consumed unrefined, are expensive when not in season. In this article, we examine the possibility of maintaining recommended levels simultaneously of the nutrients mentioned with a short list of more popular vegetables, namely, broccoli, carrot, peas, sweet potato, and spinach.
