Anyone who eats a healthy diet and does not have an increased vitamin requirement can cover their nutrient needs via the healthy diet according to the well-known food pyramid. However, the “Fachinformation Ernährung” of the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) shows that only just 17.8% of the Swiss population eat the recommended “5 a day” (two portions of fruit, three portions of vegetables of approx. 120 grams each or a handful in various colours). In keeping with our New Year's resolutions, this is exactly where we could start in 2021.
According to the recommendation of the Swiss Nutrition Society, one portion per day can be replaced by 2dl of vegetable/fruit juice (without added sugar). When choosing fruit or vegetable juice, it is advisable to opt for natural organic products. Biotta juices are 100% natural, have been organic for over 60 years and contain no additives. An ideal complement for a vitamin-rich start to the new year and a balanced diet.
