Science Super Food

People need Acai fruit to obtain energy, lipid, protein, carbohydrates, fiber, and sugar. There are a 210 grams of energy inside 40 grams of Acai. Also, there are 12 grams of healthy fat inside of the fruit as well. Next, there are 2 grams of protein in it. Then, there are 24 grams of carbohydrates in it as well. Finally, there are 3 grams of fiber and 19 grams of sugar in it. You can also get Vitamin A and C from this.

Another food that seems healthy are apples. If you eat one apple you would get 24 grams of energy, no fat, no protein, 6.67 grams of carbohydrates, 0.4 grams of fiber, and 5.33 grams of sugar. Also you would get no vitamins from apples. You would need to eat 313.59 grams of apples to get the same amount of energy as the Acai. 144 grams of apples to get the same amount of carbohydrates. Also, you would need to eat 275.62 grams of apples to get the same amount of fiber. Finally, you would need to have 142.57 grams of apples to get the same amount of sugar. This will cost way more money, than the amount Acai you would only need to buy.

The super food label affects money because all of the people want to buy food that are labeled super because they think that it is very good for them. They buy the food because they try to get nutrients, but if it is not true, then the company is just scamming the people. Still, if the food is good for you, but if it is not labeled, then no one will know if it is good for them or not and they would not buy it as much.

I think that they are both as important to eat because if you eat too much super foods, than you would be have too much nutrients, but if you eat only normal food, then you would not get as much nutrients as you need. I think that you need to have a balanced diet because you always need to have a healthy body and not too fat.
