Why is it so?

Postby Angel » Wed Jan 25, 2006 9:38 pm

Hey guys,
I have just invested in The Penguin Fat, Fibre & Energy Counter but noticed something strange and wondered if anyone could offer an explanation.

Under Green Beans:
1 cup, Canned, Drained = Fibre 8.5g
1 cup, Fresh, Boiled = Fibre 3.9g
1 cup, Frozen, Boiled = Fibre 3.6g
1 cup, Raw, Sliced = Fibre 1.8g

Its the same for Green Peas:
1 cup, Canned, Drained = Fibre 12.9g
1 cup, Fresh, Boiled = Fibre 10.7g
1 cup, Frozen, Boiled = Fibre 9.3g
1 cup, Raw = Fibre 8.1g

:? I can't for the life of me figure out how something canned can be so much higher in fibre.

Looking forward to your responses,
Thanks,
Angel

Sorry Angel I don't by tin beans or peas so I can't explain it.

Fresh food often deteriorates quickly on the shelf, where as canned food is canned straight after the food is picked and often pressure cooked in the can with all the nutrients intact.
Unfortunately canned food also has salt preservatives added which will make people gain weight.

Of course if you grow the food yourself and eat it soon after picking that would have to contain the highest amounts of fibre.

Bummer, not finding 'The Penguin Fat, Fibre & Energy Counter' it as useful I would have thought it should be i.e. can't find a lot of what I need.

Should have waited till I could find Rosemary Stanton's Fat & Fibre Counter, being a veteran nutritionist it would have to be good, wouldn't it???

Oh, well, least it wasn't expensive, that'll teach me to be too keen!
