Nutrition Professor claims that grapes and bananas are not as healthy as people think.
Birger Svihus, a nutrition professor at the University of Life Sciences, "declares war" against banana and grapes.
- There are more sugar in banana than in Coca-Cola. The banana is not much healthier than jelly gum, says Svihus.
- Coca-Cola has a sugar content of 11 percent while banana has a sugar content of 14 percent. In addition, banana contains starch which is being degraded to sugar in the body and when you put this together banana actually has twice as much sugar as Coca-Cola, he explains.
At the same time Svihus points out that there is nothing wrong with eating banana if you do not have an obesity problem or diabetes.
- The point here is that people unfortunately think that banana is good for you, but it is not good for obese or diabetic. I do not want to be negative towards fruit, but the fact is that fruits like banana and grapes have a very high sugar content and a low content of the good nutrients, the professor explains, adding that he wish that we ate more fruit and vegetables.
- Of the fruits I would rather recommend orange or apple which has a lower sugar content and a higher content of fiber and vitamin C, he says.
