How is this ? How can 246 grapes be one a day ?
Also, is this the same if i make a smoothies at home ?
Usually i would put a banana, a passion fruit, an orange and a selection of berries into my blender with some apple juice. Does this mean that i only get one portion from all of that ?
I would love this one explained .
I just bought a fruit juice from marks and spencers and it says on the bottle that 246 grapes and raspberries have been pressed into this bottle and that this equates to 1 of my five a day.
Maybe they mean 1 portion of the fruit juice is one of your 5 a day and theres more than one portion in the bottle??
There's deffo more than one portion in your home made smoothie
Surely this cant be right!
Any dieticians care to explain this for us ?
I just checked innocent smoothies and they are argueing that their smoothies contain two portions but dieticians are saying that a smoothie can only have one portion regardless of the content.
Apparently smoothies, no matter how much fruit, only count for one of your 5 day. This is because the fibre in the fruit is broken down so much before you consume it. Very annoying, but have to say for the most part i don't pay much attention, usually only have 2 or 3 portions more
