Powdered Fruit And Vegetable Supplements Are A Good Source Of Nutrients, Dietician Says

May 18, 2010: 05:45 AM EST
A nutritionist recommends eating powdered fruit and vegetable supplements if people somehow can’t get healthy nutrients from eating fruits and veggies every day. To make the supplements, registered dietitian and medical school professor Sheah Rarback says, fruits and vegetables are juiced then dried at low temperatures. Water, sugar and fiber are removed in the process, leaving only the nutrients. Rarback cites a recent study showing that healthy men and women who ingested either of two different powdered fruit and vegetable supplements had lower levels of inflammatory markers and higher levels of antioxidant vitamins in their blood than a placebo group. Getting the nutrients from real food, she says, but the powdered supplements are a scientifically-supported alternative in a pinch.
