    So I know it's important to strain orange juice if it's full of pulp, but what about other fruit fiber? Are things like whole grapes, whole cherries, dates, etc. going to be problematic? Should you watch your consumption of whole fruits because of the fiber? I find myself doing so but don't know if it's necessary.

    Interesting... So, oranges have quite a lot fiber, unlike watermelon and grapes. Grapes are back?;-)

    I wonder what is so bad about grapes anyway and why are they not on the "OK" list? There are some black grapes that are coming in right now and OMG they are so delicious.

    Hmmmmmm. That would be really wonderful if so. I know a lot of people are wondering about grapes, maybe nwo can fire up the Peat phone for us. I know grapes are not on the list that ARK has provided. I sure would like to be able to add them to the list!

    I eat tons of grapes without any issues. Green seedless organic. Sometimes a punnet a day. If you don't react to them I don't see a problem to be honest.

    The answer I posted in the thread about dates was in response to a question about seedless grapes and dates.

    Ok cool, then grapes are OK just orange juice is more optimal. :)

    I'm not sure if I posted my question clearly enough, I'll try and rephrase it a little bit.

    If it's so important to strain orange juice because of the cellulose, is it harmful to eat other fruits whole? Would it be more helpful to juice all fruit?
