Format: Paperback
We've all heard of superfoods. In fact, I have an entire shelf filled with books whose sole focus is superfoods, some common and some exotic--but all packed with so much nutrition that they warrant being a base of one's diet.

What sets this book apart is that the 20 superfoods are all fruits. Nowadays hybrid fruit is often so sweet and high in sugar that it might be little more than junk food. The impact on blood sugar often makes it only a step above a sugary dessert. But these superfruits are packed with antioxidants, and 9 of them are berries, making them low glycemic (little impact on raising the insulin levels). The 7 criteria the author uses to pick the 20 top fruits are that the fruits should be rich in the Vitamins A, C, E; rich in B vitamins; rich in minerals; rich in amino acids and protein; rich in fiber; rich in omega fats; and rich in phytosterols. (We are given a page or so explanation of each of these 7 categories.) The author warns us that superfruit juices (diluted with concentrates) or supplements cannot replace eating the fresh superfruit in its natural state. I absolutely agree--processing nearly always diminishes the nutrients.

The book is divided into 3 parts and 4 appendices. Part I enlightens us on essential nutrients and what the author calls "superfruit signatures" -a specific nutrient feature that makes it exceptional among other plants. The four he cites are dietary prebiotic fiber, Vitamin C, carotenoids and polyphenols. 6 of the fruits contain all four of the signatures in high amounts (mango, red guava, dried goji berry, orange, seaberry and papaya). In part I we also learn about the phytochemicals and the health value of the different colored fruits.

As pharmaceutical companies inundate us with reasons as to why their drugs are the way to solve all of our health concerns, we've been brainwashed into putting complete reliance on them. People forget the benefits of the basics like exercise, and above all...eating the right foods!! I've found Superfruits to be a great go-to guide for finding the best fruits for my health needs. I feel healthier and more educated about what I'm consuming--both wins in my book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a refreshing change to the hype that surrounds the claims for many fruits that claim to be super. The criteria for inclusion in this list rests on more than claims made by a company to sell its latest and greatest find.

I have seen the hypre for years and had even been drawn to items like the ORAC score to help determine which fruits are better than others. The criteria that Dr. Gross uses to judge whether a fruit is truly super is well-balanced and cuts through the marketing noise and gives the reader a more informed reason for choosing one fruit over another.

I was pleasantly surprised to see mango as the #1 superfruit and one of my favorites, acai, was at #19. I now add more mango to my daily ration of fruit.

As someone who works in the smoothie industry, I am always looking for which fruits pack the highest and best nutrient density so I can inform my customers. This book gives me great information to share and to use in my daily pursuit of delicious fruit to eat.

The author names a series of superfoods. i.e.
o acai berry
o blueberry
o strawberry
o cran and red grapes
o anthocyanins

The body needs plenty of fiber and micronutrients
from these superfoods. In addition, antioxidants
are mandatory; such as the vitamins A,C,E, Selenium.
Kiwi has Vitamin C, fiber, Omega 3,6 and Vitamin E.

Resveratrol inhibits inflammation, anti-clotting
and the onset of cancer. The book has some classic
menus. i.e.

Citrustonic consists of banana, mandarin orange,
grapefruit and lime. Salmon with superfruits is
a powerhouse meal.

A strength of the work is that the author names both
the food groups and sample recipes concurrently.
The book is highly recommended for health buffs
everywhere.
