Food facts you didn’t know!


The world of food is a vast one and sometimes we get lost in all the information we get. Who knew that there might be a day when we come across food facts that will blow our mind. 

Here are some of my favourites! 

  1. A single strawberry has over 200 seeds! Wow! 
  2. Tomatoes are actually a fruit, not vegetable. For those of you who didn’t know, surprise!
  3. If you consume half a cup of figs, it is equivalent to half a cup of milk. Talk about nutrition in different ways. 
  4. The most stolen food in the world is “cheese”. 
  5. Peanuts can be used to make dynamites. What even??!!
  6. The Mayan civilisation used chocolate as currency. If that was the case, i’d be rich. 
  7. Pure honey can last upto 3000 years. 
  8. Due to the high acidic content in lemons, they have the ability to kill off bacteria. It is recommended to include lemons in your daily diet. 
  9. Want to look young and rejuvenate your skin? Try oranges. They have antioxidants that help revitalise the skin and protect it from free radicals. 
  10. If you want to speed up the ripening process of an avocado, place it in a brown bag and store it in a cool and dry place. Thank me while you’re enjoying your avocado toast. 
  11. A banana is not a fruit! It is a herb! I did not see that coming. 
  12. Mangoes are called “King of fruits” because they are the most loved and number 1 fruit, worldwide. 

All this conversation about food has made me feel a little peckish. I’m off to grab a snack, stay safe. 

Until next time.
