Organic fruits are perceived to have a higher nutritional content than conventionally grown fruits, but currently, literature is rather ambiguous on the accuracy of this claim. Using vitamin C concentration as a nutritional marker, we found no clear or significant difference in the nutritional content between organically grown and conventionally grown fruit. The fruits analyzed were: oranges, mangoes and pineapple. Of the three types of fruits analyzed by cyclic voltammetry only, Orange demonstrated a significantly higher vitamin C concentration for organically grown versus conventionally grown fruit. Our results suggest that other factors are more influential on vitamin C levels than whether fruits are organically or conventionally grown. The detail about the comparative determination of ascorbic acid concentration in the three deferent kinds of the highest concentration of ascorbic acid among the fruits used than followed by pineapple and mango. The difference or variation of the result in all kinds of fruits used may also be due to the physical-chemical changes that eventually take place on the repining process of the fruits in case of any further research. It is recommended that people should be eating more fruits in order to meet up daily intake or vitamin C. ...
