All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

I appreciate your intention and time you are willing to spent on writing me a letter. I want you to know that, but also something else in respect to the precious time of your life.

Several years ago, I stopped discussing fruitarianism privately, except for very special cases. Talking about veganism and vegetarianism via email has even lower priority in my to do list, which is extensive. There are probably very few arguments I haven't heard yet, and I can imagine only few of them are able to spark my interest - I have been discussing fruitarianism and veganism for a very long time. I might not respond, human lives are to short to do as nearly as much as I want.

I do not date romantically or for casual socializing.

So if you still want to contact me privately, please consider that I will prioritize letters with offers of collaboration on creating public fruitarian content (including critical), friendly "hello" messages, and consultation requests. 

If you are interested in fruitarianism, I invite you to register on this site and participate with your answers, stories, and comments, and receive feed and email updates. You can subscribe to feeds for articles on almost every category section of the site (a link this feed-image RSS Feed on the top of the page, above titles), so you can pick and choose with your feed reader. If you see an interesting topic, please express your opinion in a comment, and we can keep a dialogue over time.

If you want to to keep in touch with me as a fruitarian person, but do not see yourself developing a friendship, please consider these fruitarian profiles on social networks, where I rarely post - it would be hopefully easy for you if you already spend time there, and our link may lead to something in the future:

I must add that I am not interested in investing much time on most social media outlets, including most of the named above, but I kept these profiles for many years now, and do check on them.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are the sugars, starches and fibers found in fruits, grains, vegetables and milk products, one of the basic food groups.

Sugar is the generalized name for sweet, short-chain, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food. They are composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Simple sugars are called monosaccharides and include glucose (or dextrose), fructose, and galactose. The table sugar most customarily used as food is sucrose - hydrolyses into fructose and glucose in the body. Other disaccharides include maltose and lactose. Longer chains of sugars are called oligosaccharides. 

Starch is a polymeric carbohydrate consisting of a large number of glucose units joined by glycosidic bonds. This polysaccharide is produced by most green plants as an energy store. It is the most common carbohydrate in human diets and is contained in large amounts in staple foods such as potatoes, wheat, maize (corn), rice. Pure starch is a white, tasteless and odorless powder that is insoluble in cold water or alcohol. 

Fiber is consists of non-starch polysaccharides such as arabinoxylans, cellulose, and many other plant components such as resistant starch, resistant dextrins, inulin, lignin, chitins, pectins, beta-glucans, and oligosaccharides, and are derived from plants. Dietary fibers are not digested by gastrointestinal enzymes. Soluble fiber dissolves in water, changes as it goes through the digestive tract, where it is fermented by bacteria, partially into physiologically active byproducts - healthful compounds. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and stays intact as it moves through your digestive system, can be prebiotic and metabolically ferment in the large intestine. Dietary fibers can change absorption of other nutrients and chemicals. Some soluble plant fibers can modulate intestinal inflammation and are contrabiotic. Many types of so-called dietary fiber are not actually fibrous.
