Most Nigerians Not Meeting Fruit Intake Requirement – Nutritionist

Published

on

Nutritionist

A renowned nutritionist, Dr. Bisi Abiola has identified cultural and natural restrictions as the major problems preventing a greater percentage of Nigerians from meeting the recommended daily fruit servings.

Abiola, Managing Director of Indulge Nigeria Limited, said this in her latest monthly healthy living discourse, a platform that reviews the positive role that fruit juice can and does play in a healthy diet

During the series sponsored by Chivita, the nutritionist said Nigerian culture does not recognise fruit as satisfying enough to stand as a diet. This, she noted, is one of the reasons many people do not pay serious attention to fruit consumption.

The expert regretted that the few people who have risen above the confine of unfavourable culture to embrace fruit meal are often confronted with convenience and suitability challenges.

To enjoy the benefits of fruit all seasons, Abiola urged health-cautious and busy individuals to embrace 100% pure fruit juice, which she described as a perfect substitute for whole fruits.

She, however, cautioned consumers to pay attention to labels while shopping to ensure that they buy pure fruit juice, saying: “If 100% fruit juice is not clearly written on the pack, it is likely not a pure fruit juice.

“The truth is that 100% fruit juice is proven to have similar or exactly same nutrition as fresh juice does, straight from a fruit without added sugar or preservatives. In other words, 100% fruit juice is nutrient-dense beverage that provides vitamins, minerals (folic acid, thiamine and magnesium) and beneficial plant nutrients like polyphenols.

“When fruit juice is 100%, it counts as one portion of fruit, which is not only convenient but also helpful as many Nigerians do not meet their daily fruit quota for the maintenance of good health.”

REPEAT BROADCAST: NEW PACKAGING, SAME AMSTEL MALTA

Published

on

LIPFEST
The attention of Nigerian Breweries Plc., (NB) has been drawn to a video circulating on some social media platforms alleging the existence of a ‘fake’ Amstel Malta in the market. This claim is based on the fact that there are differences in the NIS Logo on the Amstel Malta packaging.
We wish to clarify and assure all our valued consumers and lovers of Amstel Malta that there is no fake Amstel Malta in the market.
 NB recently revised the packaging of Amstel Malta and incorporated the new NIS Quality logo from the Standards organization of Nigeria, (SON). This change was approved by the relevant regulatory agencies, including the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC.
The claim, in the video under reference, that the Amstel Malta with the new NIS Logo is ‘fake’ is incorrect and misleading. SON, the owners of the NIS Quality Logo, have variously confirmed the change in its certifying logo and had in fact commended Amstel Malta for being the first producer to incorporate the new NIS Logo in its packaging.
The false claim and video have been previously addressed by NB in 2017 when the video was first circulated. A joint press conference was addressed by SON, and NB Plc affirming the packaging change with new NIS logo and correcting the false claims in the video.
 We are concerned that the same misleading video has resurfaced and is again being circulated on some social media platforms. We therefore appeal to the public to ignore this video and refrain from re-circulating this untrue information.
