Fruit Group Quiz Answers

1. Which of these nutrients can you get from eating whole fruit that you don’t normally find in fruit juice?

The correct answer is FIBER.

Fiber is found in the pulp of the fruit. When juice is made (either commercially or at home with a juicer), the pulp is usually removed. Unfortunately, the fiber goes with it.


2. Potassium is a nutrient that many Americans don’t get enough of. Which of the following is a good fruit source of this mineral that can help regulate blood pressure?

The correct answer is ALL OF THE ABOVE.

Potassium is a nutrient found in a wide variety of foods – from all the fruits listed above to some beans (white beans, soy beans), vegetables (spinach, potatoes), fish (halibut, tuna), and low-fat yogurt and milk, too. 


3. Which fruit is this?

The correct answer is MANGO.

Mango is a fruit that can be eaten raw or added to recipes, such as a stir fry, for added sweetness. They’re also really delicious! 


4. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet may protect against certain types of cancer.

The correct answer is TRUE.  

As a part of an overall healthy diet, eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce risk for heart disease, protect against certain types of cancer, and help lower intake of calories. 


5. Which of the following counts as part of the Fruit Group?

The correct answer is ALL OF THE ABOVE.

Any fruit or 100% fruit juice counts as part of the Fruit Group. Fruit may be fresh, canned, frozen, or dried, and may be whole, cut-up, or pureed.


6. Fiber found in fruit is associated with which of the following health outcomes?


As a part of an overall healthy diet, eating foods that contain fiber – such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains – may reduce risk for heart disease, protect against certain types of cancer, and help maintain proper bowel function. 


7. Fruits are sources of which of the following?

The correct answer is FOLATE.

Folate is one of the B vitamins and is needed by our cells for growth. Vitamin D and calcium are not typically found in high amounts in fruit, but you should be able to find some 100% orange juices that are fortified with calcium and vitamin D. Look on the front of the container to see if Vitamin D has been added. 


8. Which of these foods is actually a fruit in plant biology?

The correct answer is PEPPER.

In plant biology, a fruit contains the seeds of a plant. Though it is botanically a fruit, a pepper counts toward the Vegetable Group because we eat peppers in a similar way to vegetables (on sandwiches, in soups, in pasta sauces). Likewise, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, and pumpkins all contain the seeds of the plant and are therefore botanically fruits.


9. Which of these foods is a source of vitamin C?

The correct answer is ALL OF THE ABOVE.

All fruits (and vegetables, too) contain some amount of vitamin C. Vitamin C is an important nutrient that is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body.

10. What do fruits have that make them sweet?

The correct answer is FRUCTOSE.

Fructose is a natural sugar found in fruit and it is responsible for the sweet flavor of many fruits.
