Apples and Your Health is an easy-to-read summary of facts and research findings on the health benefits of apples. A variety of healthy topics were "picked" from the ever-growing "tree of knowledge" and are summarized for the interest of readers. We encourage you to stroll through the nutrition table, recipes and consumer tips to " harvest" ideas.

We all know eating fruits and vegetables helps us maintain good health. You'll discover why you should "pick" an apple at least once a day as part of your healthy diet.

An average Nova Scotia apple contains more fiber than a bowl of oatmeal or most brands of cold cereal and is an excellent source of dietary fiber. 80% of the fiber in apples is soluble fiber which may aid in reduction of blood cholesterol levels. One apple has 5 grams of fiber.

Crunch an apple, enjoy a bowl of apple sauce, quench your thirst with apple juice, or try apples in a dessert or main course. Use the information in this web site to inform the public why "an apple a day really will help keep the doctor away."
