Fruits hold a special place in our diet. They are a great source of supply for essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and dietary fibers. including fruits in our daily diet helps us stay immune and pink of our health. No wonder why doctors suggest eating fresh fruits daily.
India is a leading producer of fruits across the globe and while there are some fruits available throughout the year, there are some that can be enjoyed in their season only. To get maximum health benefits, health experts recommended going for seasonal fruits.
In simple terms, seasonal fruits can be defined as the fruits that are available in their season and are at a peak in terms of harvest and flavor.
The write-up mentions the benefits of seasonal fruits. Let us take a look at them.
Seasonal fruits are cheaper
Fruits in their season are cheaper because of their large supply. It means you can buy them more in quantity as compared to off-season when the prices can be as high as double or even more than that. Besides, during the season, a lot of local farmers and producers come to the market to sell off their produce at very nominal prices which further makes the fruits quite cost-effective.
Maximum nutritional value
To better understand it, let us take an example of mangoes, one of the best summer season fruits. In India, mangoes are the king of fruits and for legitimate reasons. Mangoes are probably one of the healthiest fruits to have during the summer season. They are free of fat, cholesterol, and sodium and a great source of essential vitamins and minerals.
Being a great source of Vitamin C, mangoes help you stay immune against infections and diseases. Now if you have mangoes off-season, you will not get the full benefits of their rich nutritional content. This is because fruits are processed using different techniques to last longer which ultimately reduces their nutritional content. It means if you eat mangoes off-season, you are not just compromising with its taste but also the benefits.
Besides these two benefits, another important reason to go for season fruits includes supporting the locals who put a great deal of hard work to grow and bring seasonal fruits to you.
