. A 4-year-old girl with vitamin A deficiency was admitted to the hospital. The 4-year-old boy (pseudonym) lived near Yuema farm in Wuchang District. At ordinary times, the problem of children’s eating has always been a big problem for parents. “Every time my daughter eats, she has to coax and coax again and again before she can barely eat a little.” Liu, the child’s mother, said that children’s favorite food in weekdays is snacks, especially all kinds of candy. In addition to not like to eat staple food, children also do not want to eat vegetables and fruits. Although Ms. Liu changed her design and made the vegetables and fruits as lovely and attractive as possible, the children were still unmoved.

half a year ago, Ms. Liu saw a wechat friend selling fruits and vegetables in her wechat circle. A box of fruit and vegetable boxes contains 9 kinds of dehydrated vegetables, including purple sweet potato crisp, okra crispy, crispy pumpkin, red heart crisp, and 6 kinds of dried fruit, such as dried apple, yellow peach, jackfruit and banana. “Delicious crispy, balanced diet, healthy light food, concentrated intake of fruits and vegetables nutrition…” Looking at the slogan, Ms. Liu was moved. She bought a box of peeled fruits and vegetables from her wechat friends. To her surprise, because the taste is crisp and sweet, Tongtong likes to eat these dehydrated fruits and vegetables, and her food intake has increased a lot. In the past three months, children hardly eat fresh fruits and vegetables after eating them.

at noon last week, after entering the house from the balcony, he suddenly said that he could not see clearly and recovered for a long time. Ms. Liu was very worried. She took Tong Tong to the hospital for examination and found out that it was due to lack of vitamin A. The doctor told her that the dehydrated fruits and vegetables eaten by Tong Tong were fried and salted with sugar. Many vitamins had been lost in the production process, which was also the reason why Tong Tong lacked vitamin A. Ms. Liu regretted hearing that.

in a month. In recent days, reporters have visited several department stores and supermarkets in Guanggu, JIEKOU and wusheng Road, and found that there are counters for selling dehydrated fruits and vegetables. Whether in bulk or packaged products, the price of each Jin ranges from 28 yuan to 100 yuan, and consumers patronize it from time to time. It seems that dehydrated fruits and vegetables are more nutritious in the Internet. A good business shop, each 1 kg of dehydrated fruits and vegetables, each month can sell nearly 30000 copies. Last month, she bought a box of dehydrated fruits and vegetables weighing 1 jin. Fruits accounted for 30% and vegetables accounted for 70%. The price was less than 30 yuan. She felt it was very cost-effective. For her weight loss period, is a good choice. Today, she often buys dehydrated fruits and vegetables at the mall and eats them as she walks around instead of dinner. “It’s said that taking off fruits and vegetables is just another way to eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Because of the good taste, it’s not difficult to stick to it. We should soon realize the weight reduction plan.”

Ms. Huang from Hankou said that she and her friends would buy dehydrated fruits and vegetables online once a month, and then eat dried fruits instead of fruits. “Now fruits are very expensive and bulky, and it’s not easy to keep them. It’s more convenient to eat dehydrated fruits and vegetables.” Ms. Huang said that she and her friends have the habit of eating snacks. Compared with potato chips, spicy chips, biscuits and other snacks, dried fruit tastes as crisp as before, but it seems more nutritious and healthy.

however, as a consumer of dehydrated fruits and vegetables, Ms. Zhang of Hankou does not have much favor with dehydrated fruits and vegetables. “Apple crisp, mushroom crisp, and so on are greasy, after eating, the hands are full of oil, food above the salt is also a little more.” Ms. Zhang said that she always loves health. The dehydrated vegetables she bought are oily and salty, and the dried fruits are also sweet. It is difficult to say that they are healthy food. A box I bought two months ago is still not finished.

are harmful to human health. Can dehydrated fruits and vegetables really replace the nutritional value of fresh fruits and vegetables?

according to Cui Wei, a nutritionist and registered nutritionist of Wuhan Third Hospital, many fruit and vegetable products on the market are actually fried products, and the crispy taste also comes from frying. During the production process, the fruits and vegetables themselves lose more vitamins and dietary fiber, and they are also covered with extra oil. In addition, in order to ensure the taste, these fruits and vegetables usually add salt, sugar, monosodium glutamate, etc. to adjust the taste, which increases the intake of sugar and salt, and further increases the calories.

take dehydrated bananas as an example. Every 100 grams of dehydrated banana slices on the market, there are about 500 calories, which is equivalent to the stomach of nine bananas; the dehydrated vegetables crispy have 510 kcal per 100 grams, which is equal to 20 dishes of vegetables Cui Wei said that article 5 of the dietary guidelines for Chinese residents clearly states that less salt and less oil, sugar control and alcohol restriction. Daily salt should not exceed 6G, cooking oil 25-30g, sugar intake should be controlled below 25g. In addition to the concentrated sugar content of the fruit itself after frying and drying, many dried fruits on the market will be soaked in sugar to isolate oxygen to extend the shelf life. These dehydrated fruits and vegetables made by frying and sugar and accompanied by many additives are not nutritious and healthy snacks. Once they are consumed for a long time, they will not only run counter to weight loss, but also do harm to health. “Dehydrated fruits and vegetables cannot be used as a substitute for fresh fruits and vegetables.” Yang Xuefeng, vice president and Secretary General of Hubei nutrition society, said that removing dried fruits and vegetables is not only a loss
