    What’s a “powerhouse” fruit or vegetable? According to a new studypublished in a Centers for Disease Control and Protection journal, they’re foods that are “most strongly associated with reduced chronic disease risk.”

    They also contain 17 essential nutrients in quantities that constitute 10 percent or more of a person’s ideal daily intake: potassium, fiber, protein, calcium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, zinc, and vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K3. But the top performer might surprise you.
