Why we need food? As a food blogger, I won't ask such question.. But I asked the question to my parents in my childhood. Likewise, have you ever considered the question of why we need food?...... Food is essential for growth and maintenance for human body, right? We should consume foods for physiological, psychological and social functions.
Nature gift us many vegetables and fruits. It provides health benefits and are important for the prevention of illness. Most research recommends filling half of our plate with fruits and vegetables at each meal. It gives varieties of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants to us. But the question is, the produce we getting is free from dirt, bacteria and other Micro organisms? Not sure.
Not all the cities have facilities to get organic produce. In such case, we have to buy fruits and vegetables from our local markets which is produce with the spray of pesticides and other chemical manures. Normally, we used to wash with running tap water to wash off the dirt and unseen germs. But, most of the pesticides have capacity to withstand the rain and contaminated with fertilizers and preservatives even expose to atmospheric fumes, dust and exhaust and air born micro-organisms. So general water wash may remove the surface dirt but not the pesticides. How bad can it be though?
OK! Then how should wash fruits and vegetables? can we use with other detergent soap or solutions? No, it also contains chemicals and use of vinegar will leave stringent smell. Then, what about water wash for long time 30-60 minutes? Do you know veggies and fruits have water soluble vitamins; it will also wash off with water, then what use if we consume those produce. Recently, I got to know about the Good Home Vegetable and Fruit Wash product, from the house of TTK Healthcare, pioneer in domestic household products.
