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."
