FAQs about superfoods

Many stores offer different types of superfoods. At Instacart, we'll do our best to pick high-quality produce and products for you. Buying produce can be tricky if you don't know what you are looking for. For most produce, you want to pick pieces that don't have soft spots in them. You can also tell if the produce is fresh if it has a fragrant smell, or by looking at its color.

It's a good idea to buy produce when it's in season because it will be more flavorful and less expensive. Also, be wary of the pricing when it comes to buying superfoods. Don't feel like you have to buy expensive products.

While buying fresh produce is ideal, it doesn't last as long as frozen foods. The freezing process preserves most of the nutrients in the fruit or vegetable and keeps it at almost the same quality as fresh produce if you want to store it for longer periods of time. 

So, if you are looking to store your superfoods, freezing is a great way to keep their nutrients while maintaining the freshness you would get when eating the food fresh. Just be aware that when using frozen fruit, ice crystals can damage the fruit's cells and make it soft. Certain fruits could turn to mush, and you could lose some of their minerals and vitamins as the ice melts. 

When fruit is dried or dehydrated, the process takes the water out of the food, significantly increasing its sugar content. A benefit of the added sugar content is that you can get extra energy from the fruit after eating it. Drying fruit can also concentrate its vitamins and minerals, so you can eat less fruit by weight and get the same amount of nutrients. If you consider adding dried fruit to your cart, it is healthy for you, but make sure you are eating small portions because of its sugar content.

Antioxidants are known to boost your immune system. They work with your body to help fight off damage and keep your immune system strong. These antioxidants can help you ward off infections, colds, and cases of flu. 

There is also evidence that antioxidants can reduce damage in your body caused by free radicals, which are byproducts of oxidization happening inside your body. Antioxidants have been shown to reduce and decrease effects of health problems such as:
  • heart disease
  • cancer
  • arthritis
  • stroke  
You can tell if a superfood is high in antioxidants by its color. If it's all brown, its antioxidant levels are low. Look for foods with naturally bright colors.

Remember: superfoods high in antioxidants are not miracle cures. They are just healthy foods that help support your body in taking care of itself. You can not rely solely on superfoods to keep you healthy.
