Does Blending Fruit Destroy Nutrients? 

When it comes to enjoying your fruits, blending them into smoothies is a delicious and convenient method to get your fill of nutrients. With the rising popularity of blenders and the smoothie culture, a question often springs up: does blending fruit ruin its nutritional magic? Let's cut through the noise and uncover the truth behind this common concern.

Does Blending Fruit Destroy Nutrients?

First things first, blending doesn't destroy the nutrients in fruit

The blades of a blender do break down the fruit's structure, yes, but this is much like what happens when you chew. Your teeth grind food down so that your digestive system can go to work. 

Blenders essentially mimic this process, doing the initial work for you. The vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial compounds remain present, even in a liquified form.

A Closer Look at Oxidation

Oxidation is often cited as a blender's nutritional crime—air supposedly collides with the fruit's goodness, dissipating its vitamins before they can reach your lips. However, if you're quick to sip your smoothie soon after it's blended, or store it in a container, the effects of oxidation are almost negligible.

 This is similar to the process of eating an apple. If you bite into it and leave it out, you'll notice it turns brown, but munching it down straight away bypasses this issue.

Fibre

Now, what about the all-important fibre? Blending fruit does change its fibre content, but this isn't a bad thing. 

The soluble and insoluble fibres remain, they're just broken down into smaller pieces. This can actually aid in your digestion and the gradual release of sugars, keeping your energy levels more stable and your gut happier.

Boosting Bioavailability

Interestingly, the act of blending can increase the bioavailability of some compounds in fruit. Certain nutrients might be better absorbed by the body once they've been liberated from their cell walls, which can be particularly tough in raw foods.

 So, by blending your fruit, you could potentially be giving your body an easier job of extracting those nutritional benefits.

The Bottom Line

Let's be clear: blending fruit does not destroy nutrients. If there are any losses due to oxidation, they are minimal, provided you enjoy your blended drink promptly or store it in closed container. It's also worth noting that our bodies are well-equipped to handle and process foods in various forms—blended, chewed, or otherwise.

Conclusion

Verve Tin lying on apples

The verdict is in, and it's a resounding 'no'—blending fruit does not destroy its nutrients. Just like when you chew your food, blending helps to break it down and can even enhance nutrient absorption. This means that your smoothies are still nutrient powerhouses.
