What is a portion – a simple definition

How much is one portion of fruit?

Well, I’ve asked myself how could this be defined, or better, what could be the right amount of a portion as described in most dedicated books. This definition, a rather simple one, is worth to be shared. Hence, before engaging into a whatsoever diet, you should probably know what’s the notion of a portion. And here it is, according to European Food Information Council.

On average, a portion of fruit is equivalent to an 80g serving. One portion of fruit is, for example:

  • 1 medium apple, or 1 medium banana
  • 2 small satsumas (cold hardy mandarin) or 3 dried apricots
  • a glass of 100% fruit juice

How much is one portion of vegetables?

On average, a portion of vegetables is equivalent to 80g. One portion of vegetables is, for example:

  • 3 heaped tablespoonfuls of cooked carrots or peas or sweetcorn
  • 1 cereal bowl of mixed salad
  • 80g of beans and other pulse vegetables, such as kidney beans, lentils and chick peas

Want to know more about, pls. refer to European Food Information Council.
