A green eMark on any food or drink means the food is broken down faster than blue foods, but not as fast as yellow foods. A food eMarked green can keep you going for a couple of hours depending on your physical activity during that time.
Green foods are useful for snacks between meals, or if you have skipped a meal. They can also help to replenish your energy after moderate activity, such as a brisk walk.
