Red Delicious Apples
Apples contain malic and tartaric acids, which improve the digestibility of not only the apple itself but also other foods. Just one apple provides as much dietary fiber as a serving of bran cereal, as well as pectin, a soluble fiber that encourages the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract and reduces sugar in the blood. Apples also contain antioxidant phytonutrients that help fight the damaging effects of LDL (bad) cholesterol.
1 medium apple (3” in diameter or 180g) provides 95 calories, 0g fat, 25g carbohydrate, 4g dietary fiber and 0g protein.
Apples are packaged in breathable transparent bags allowing the apples to stay fresh while in storage and also limits human interaction which helps to prevent food contamination.
