Hello,I?ll like to know if there is a difference between the veggies and the fruits.Thanks

Veggies and fruits are different from a botanical perspective – that is, they come from different parts of the plant. From a nutrition standpoint, veggies tend to have carbohydrate in the form of starch, whereas fruits have carbohydrate primarily from the natural sugar in them, which is mostly fructose. Otherwise, they all contain vitamins, minerals and other healthful substances in differing amounts, depending on the specific item.
