Product Review:Tinned fruit

Standard

blueberries

Price: $4.07 / 415g ($0.98 / 100g)

Nutrition: per 70mL serve: Energy = 271kJ; Sugar = 10.3g; Sodium = 10mg.

Verdict: Canned varieties should be drained as most of the sugar is contained in the liquid. Opt for ‘In Juice’ over ‘In Syrup’.

You might have guessed now that some canned fruits are more appealing than others, a can of peaches is far more appealing than strawberries for example. The point is that there’s no reason not to incorporate things like canned peaches and canned/frozen blueberries when the fresh stuff is out of season or out of your price range. Remember that you could be doing your body a favour if theses are fruits you usually aren’t eating. We need to be consuming a variety of colours!
