Fruit contains carotene (up to 60 mg), kryptoxanthin, z-xanthine, physalin, organic acids – malic and tartaric (up to 2,64 %), sugars (up to 4 %), tannin, pteroylglutamic acid, saturated fatty acids (up to 8 %), which include glycerines, oleic, stearin, linolic, palmitic acid. Fruit contain various vitamins (C, B1, B2, E and other) and is one of the best natural sources of vitamins.
Apricot contains sugars, organic acids (salicylic, malic, and citric), provitamin A (carotene), vitamins C and B and is rich in salts, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, sodium and iron.
Fresh fruit contains various sugars (up to 12 % of fructose, glucose, sucrose), organic acids (up to 2,42 % - malic, tartaric, citric, chlorogenic acid, metapectin), pectins, tannin and colorants, mineral salts, organic compounds of iron and phosphorus, vitamin B and C, provitamin A (carotene) and ether oils. Part of the ether oils are acetic aldehyde and complex ethers of amyl alcohol with formic, acetic and hexanoic and caprylic acid.
Fruit contains almost all vitamins and mineral elements. Pineapple prevents vitamin deficiency in human organism. Pineapple pulp contains up to 86 % water. It also contains a substantial quantity of simple sugars (12-15 mg) mainly in the form of sucrose, organic acids (0.7 mg), particularly the citric acid, and up to 50 mg of ascorbic acid. Among others, pineapple contains vitamins B1, B2, B12, PP, provitamin A. The pulp is rich in mineral elements: potassium (up to 320 mg), iron, copper, zinc, calcium, magnesium, manganese, iodine. It contains bromelain, which is made up of a complex of plan enzymes such as pepsin and papain. Pineapple is an excellent source of beneficial nutrients, which should definitely be included in modern person’s diet.
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
One of the basic water soluble vitamins in human food. It is a immunostimulant, helping proper functioning of organism’s immune system. It is a strong anti-oxidant, which helps protecting the cells from the oxidation stress. It prevents toxic processes of free radicals, which are aggressive elements created in the organisms during illnesses, great physical strain, negative impact of the environment. It is necessary for creation of collagen and connective tissue: it strengthens the veins, bone tissue, skin, tendons and even teeth. It helps normalizing the nervous system function and resistance to stress. It protects necessary fats and vitamins soluble in fat (vitamins A and E) from oxidation. It plays an important role in transporting of glucose to cells, aids normal course of all energy related processes in the organism.
In 1953 in professional literature E. H. Hipsley first came with the term dietetic fibre, which is the combination of polysaccharides (basic source of energy, containing high-molecular saccharides) and lignin (an element contained in the hardened cellular plant wall), which do no change to endogenous secretion from human intestines.
Human organism represent metabolism, for which various composite saccharides, polysaccharides and our intestine micro flora cannot function and multiply without fibre. Basic food elements containing Saccharides, which human enzymes do not dissolve and which are not obtained from upper parts of intestinal tract (insoluble fibre) becomes a nutrition beneficial to intestinal micro flora. These elements activate propagation; growth and lifespan of ordinary flora are prebiotics.
Fibrous and capillary structure of fibre makes it a natural sorbent. Fibre binds toxins, heavy metals, products of incomplete metabolism, fatty residues and cholesterol, helps its faster discharge from the organism.
Fructose is a type of a natural sugar, present in all sweet fruits and berries (grapes, pears, apples, banana, sour cherries). Honey contains a lot of fructose: it composes half of its dry matter.
Fructose is absorbed through organ walls during food disintegration, but when entering the blood, it is absorbed quickly. Due to this rarity of metabolism, a human, who ingested fructose does not feel abrupt rise and subsequent drop of sugar levels in the blood as is the case with glucose and sucrose. Fructose ensures more balanced energy for the organism, taken as needed. Due to this fructose is recommended during adaptation to long-term tension. Fructose has another characteristic i.e. when changing from sucrose to fructose, occurrence of bad teeth drops by 30-40 %.
