Keep fruit and vegetables in daylight to boost nutrients

Fruits and vegetables should not be stored in the fridge or a dark cupboard because they need a natural cycle of day and night to produce optimum levels of nutrients and flavour, scientists claim. Because they remain alive after being picked, the biological clocks of fruits and vegetables continue to tick meaning their cells remain active and they are still sensitive to the time of day. Allowing them to continue on a day-night cycle keeps them in a more natural and healthy state while permanent darkness or light may affect their nutrient content for the worse, researchers found.

    Since the vegetables have no roots anymore, we’d better keep them in a cold and dark coma. Or put them in a vase with water outside fridge. Just in sunlight can’t be good for your vegetables.
