Eating Well for Optimum Health
Our RIPE fruit boxes are bursting with colour – and it’s not just good for the eyes to feast on such a varied palette when we deliver your workplace fruit. Eating a broad colour palette of fruit will ensure that you get the maximum range of health benefits, too. Here are some of the benefits of eating the rainbow:
All red fruits are high in fibre, especially our best-selling red apples. Berries such as raspberries and strawberries are rich in vitamin C and many other powerful antioxidants that soak up damaging free radicals. Cherries are also high in fibre and potassium.
You can’t beat the crunch of a perfectly ripe green apple or the bite of a crisp green grape – and as you savour the crunch, you can also feel good about the health benefits of these green powerhouses. They’re high in fibre, loaded with vitamins A,B,C and E and also contain magnesium, potassium and zinc.
Adding a handful of blueberries to your office bowl of cereal or afternoon yogurt not only improves the flavour of your bowl, but will also give you a dose of anti-oxidants for good heart health and vitamin B6 to help protect your immune system.
Don’t let the satsumas and clems linger for long in your workplace fruitbowl – we deliver them at optimum ripeness so that you can get the maximum vitamin C hit. They’re also rich in dietary fibre pectin and a good variety of vitamin A and minerals including calcium.
Lastly, stalwart of our boxes and our most popular fruit by a country mile – the banana. You may already know that they contain good amounts of potassium, but our yellow friend also scores well for Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C, copper and magnesium.
