Ugly fruits and vegetables are also nutritious

文字-A A +A

The Greencollar Market on the campus of National Taiwan University has been running for nine years. All registered vendors are passionate about preserving the local environment and guarantee that processed products won’t contain anything harmful to the environment. Ugly fruits and vegetables refer to those that look ugly or whose shape, size, or appearance do not meet the standard requirements of traders. Furthermore, consumers tend to buy aesthetically pleasing products, so so-called “ugly” products go to waste.

 

Crops grown in an ecologically friendly way aren’t usually beautiful in shape or size, but insect bites or pits and scars on the skin do not detract from their nutrition, and even the texture and flavor are pretty good. If consumers can change their mindset about selecting fruits and vegetables, it will encourage support for friendly-farming practices and is an act of much-needed love for Mother Earth.

醜蔬果也很營養 惜食愛地球

台大校園裡支持友善環境的綠領市集持續了九年,報名的攤商都以在地不破壞環境為理念,若是加工品則以原料不會過度利用環境為原則。醜蔬果指的是樣貌醜陋,或者形狀、大小、外表等不符合盤商規格化收購條件,且消費者購買時往往都是挑選漂亮的,白白浪費了醜蔬果。

 

其實友善農法的作物,形狀、大小不漂亮、表皮有蟲咬或坑坑疤疤,但並不減損其營養,甚至口感與味道也不差。消費者若能改變挑選的思維,就是鼓勵支持友善土地的農法,也是愛地球的行動。
