    PawDragonPawDragonDay ago
  • Well that's a lot of fibre content lost by body. Cut fruits are only of decorative use. Fruits with thin skin like apple....really need to be washed properly and eaten directly. Fruits are meant to be eaten to regular ones bowel movement which usually is neglected by slicing it . The more you slice more is the nutrient lost. Sliced fruits are mostly used by chefs for decorating and adding color prospect but fruits should always be eaten with your hands
