Fruits are one of the few foods that can be eaten raw. And it is in this form to use them best. Any heat treatment (cooking, preserving, etc.) destroys a large number of useful substances contained in them. For example, vitamin C kills not only heat treatment, but also a simple hit on the fruit of air. Therefore, some fruit (apples, pears) is recommended to use not only raw, but also whole, not cutting them. Fruits lose useful properties and from long-term storage. That is why it is important, first, to buy seasonal fruits, and secondly, to try not to store them for a long time in the refrigerator. Of course, in our latitudes there is not always a ripe fruit - in the winter they do not ripen, and we have no choice but to buy exotic ones.
