Benefits of Apples

The nutritional stars in apples (fiber, flavonoids, and fructose) translate into apples' ability to keep us healthy. Apples are a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C. Most of the apple's fiber is contained in its skin, as is the majority of its quercitin. Unfortunately, in conventionally grown apples, the apple skin is also the part most likely to contain pesticide residues and may have toxic residues if covered in petroleum-based waxes. Since peeling results in the loss of apples' flavonoids and most of its valuable fiber, choose organically grown apples whenever possible.
