Pears are one of the world's oldest cultivated and beloved fruits and one of the most important fruits of temperate-zone countries in both hemispheres.
A pear is a nutrient-dense food, which basically means it has a more nutrients per calorie ratio than foods that have more calories than nutrients.
Fresh pears are loaded with dietary fiber, much of it in the form of Pectin. They are also an excellent source of potassium, which is an element lost easily through dehydration or perspiration brought on by the active lifestyles of children. Fresh pears also contain important Vitamin c, and have no cholesterol, sodium, or saturated fat.
Convenient and Nutritious
The canning process does not affect fiber content, making them comparable to fresh and frozen. In fact, the heating process appears to make the fiber more soluble and, therefore, more useful to the body.
Few natural foods provide this much fiber and nutrition for so few calories, making pears one of the healthiest fruits!
