How much pineapple per day?

How much pineapple per day?

How many times have we wondered “How much pineapple should be eaten per day?”

We as experts of nuts and dried fruit have the answer!

The standard portion amounts to 40g, to maintain a healthy and well-balanced diet.

In this regard, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has stated that consuming up to 40g of dried fruit per day can have significant health benefits. In fact, dried fruit is an excellent daily ally thanks to the low-temperature dehydration process that allows it to maintain its original nutritional characteristics and fibre, mineral and vitamin content.

How much pineapple should you eat if you don’t have a scale at hand?

Often, when we are not at home and do not have a kitchen scale at hand, we find ourselves wondering how much dried fruit to eat.

The ideal portion of pineapple should fit in the palm of your hand.

A great help comes from the British Dietetic Association that created a simple guide for the measuring of the right portion of food using your own hands as the unit of measurement. In fact, according to this study, you can calculate the right portion of food based on the size of your hand. Of course, it should be borne in mind that each person has their own specific nutritional needs depending on their constitution, age, gender, level of physical activity, etc. and, for this reason, the portions of food vary according to individual needs. In fact, the study reveals that the hand method is proportionally applicable because a larger person, with larger hands, will automatically consume larger portions than smaller people, with smaller hands.
