Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health

How do you convert grams of powdered vegetables into servings of vegetables?

Answer

We do not count dried vegetable powder as a serving of vegetables in part because we are not able to evaluate the nutritional content in a serving of powder to see if it is equivalent to a serving of vegetables. It is best to eat fruits and vegetables because their general ‘volume’ displaces other foods (e.g. vegetables are high in volume but low calories) and to get fiber which will help you feel full longer.
