Everyone agrees apples are great for you, but why is that?
Apples are rich in antioxidants, flavonoids and dietary fibre. Just a few of the good things you’re getting when you enjoy an Italian apple are:
|Vitamin C||B Vitamins||Vitamin A, E,
|Dietary fibre||Polyphenolic compounds||Minerals|
|Immunity booster, a powerful antioxidant for fighting free radicals and protecting the body from infectious agents||B-complex vitamins play an important role in keeping red blood cells and the body’s nervous system healthy||Fight cellular damage and lower the risk of asthma, diabetes and heart disease||Key for smooth digestion and controlling blood sugar, fibre may also help prevent certain diseases as well as impede bad cholesterol||Phytonutrients that help protect the body against the damaging effects of free radicals||Important minerals like calcium, potassium and phosphorus, crucial for bodily functions like maintaining bone density, nerve health, proper cellular function|
Nutrients, vitamins, minerals and apple polyphenols – natural, plant antioxidants – are found in both the flesh and the skin of apples. But they are more concentrated in an apple’s skin. Experts estimate that there are two and a half times more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, including polyphenols, in an unpeeled apple than a peeled one. So, we recommend you enjoy the natural, unwaxed goodness of your Italian apples with the skin on!
