fruit is most popular because of its sweet and sour taste, fresh and juicy taste. The way to eat fruit is also changing, juice, preserved fruit, platter, but are these eating methods really healthy or hygienic? The following kinds of fruit eating methods can lead to the increase of bacteria.
1. Fruit platter
many people always like to buy fruit platter, because they can eat a variety of fruits for tens of yuan, and their taste is changeable. They can even taste expensive fruits that they are reluctant to eat at ordinary times. However, the media survey found that the bacterial colony number of the sample fruit platter all exceeded the standard, even the highest exceeded dozens of times. On the one hand, fruits are exposed to preservative film, utensils, knives and workers’ touch. On the other hand, the fruit platter did not immediately eat, after a period of time placed, bacteria grew rapidly.
2. As early as 2015, who suggested that root vegetables and fruits should be peeled thoroughly, and leafy vegetables and fruits should be soaked in safe water. The reason for this suggestion is that the pesticide residues in the peel are serious and difficult to remove. In addition, in order to keep fresh, most fruits will use waxing technology, in order to avoid more fruit wax into the body, or peel edible.
3. Rotten fruits
rotten fruits may be invaded by a variety of microorganisms, such as Penicillium and Aspergillus flavus. These microorganisms can cause fruit peel softening and produce new microorganisms, such as penicillin and aflatoxin, which may be toxic and carcinogenic to human beings. Even if the rotten part is removed, the harmful substances produced during the decay process will pollute the non rotten part, which is invisible to the naked eye. So, you deserve better fruit. If it’s rotten, you should throw it away.
4. Iced fruits
are tasty, but they are extremely unsanitary and cause excessive nutrient loss. Fruits frozen for a long time will lead to the loss of vitamins. Some studies have proved that lycopene and β – carotene in watermelon will lose a lot after being frozen. In addition, low temperature only delays the growth rate of bacteria, not sterilization or complete inhibition. Iced fruits are also threatened by bacteria, and other bacteria are easy to exist in the refrigerator, which may increase the bacteria on the surface of fruits during the freezing process.
5. Water soaked fruits
are soaked in water, which seems to be fresh, but in fact, it will lead to the loss of a large number of water-soluble vitamins. In addition, illegal businesses on the market use alum + crude salt, so that the cut fruit fresh, do not change color. However, according to the national hygienic standard for the use of food additives, no additives (except fruit wax) can be added to fresh fruits. Alum is harmful to human brain and bone.
