Why Are Apples A Special Fruit?



Apples
 

  • APPLES are considered a good diet food because they are low in calories and contain no fat or cholesterol.
  • They can be found in a wide variety of colors and sizes.
  • The fragrance cells are concentrated in the skin with almost half of the Vitamin C content just beneath.
  • They will stay fresher and not turn brown after slicing if dropped in water containing 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.
  • Beleive it or not, they are technically a part of the rose family. Rose hips are the fruit of the rose bush.
  • They have both soluble fiber which helps to prevent cholesterol and insoluble fiber that is good for the digestive system.
  • The flavonoids often work as antioxidants. They can protect against oxidative damage that may lead to diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.
