Interesting Facts About Some Foods We Consume Daily


There are many foods we consume on a daily basis which we have little or no idea about. You may not believe some interesting facts I recently found out about some of the foods we enjoy everyday!

Here’s a list of interesting facts about some foods I researched on which you may not have thought of:
1. A cucumber is literally a fruit, not a vegetable. Cucumbers consist of 95% of water and the skin is their most nutritious part.

2. A strawberry is not really a berry, it’s a fruit plant. A standard strawberry has around 200 seeds. Strawberries (and cashews) are the only fruits which have their seeds on the outside unlike all other fruits which have their seeds inside.


3. Kiwifruit is commercially grown on strong support structures, as it can produce several tonnes per hectare, even more than the rather weak vines can support.


4. Coffee is actually a fruit. The cherries or fruits, are mature and rounded in 7 to 9 months.


5. Eating an apple is a more stable method of staying sleepless than consuming a cup of coffee. The natural sugar in an apple is more dynamic than the caffeine in coffee.

6. Rice is actually grass which is harvested when it turns golden.

7. Pine nuts are edible seeds from pine tree cones.



8. Peanuts are legumes, not nuts and they don’t grow on trees like walnuts or pecans. The peanut plant is exceptional because it flowers above ground but the peanut grows below ground.


9. Cinnamon comes from bark. Cinnamon farmers first shave the outer bark off the trees, and then shave off the inner bark, the actual cinnamon layer.

This are just few, there are many other facts about many other foods we consume!
If you have any, drop it lets hear it.
