The health promoting effect of apples
100 g of apples contain:
App. 12 g Thanks to the favourable ratio between fructose and glucose apples are also well-tolerated by diabetics.
Pectin and cellulose
Up to 2.3 g for both pectin and cellulose. These are important dietary fibres that do not only help digesting. Pectin also favours the removal of toxic substances and lowers the cholesterol level.
Between 5 and 35 mg Vitamin C is mainly contained in the skin of the apples. We therefore suggest that it shouldn’t be removed but be enjoyed instead.
Vitamin E and B
About 0.5 mg per 100 g of apples. This corresponds to about 5% of the daily requirements of these vitamins. Furthermore, apples contain all B-group vitamins.
Potassium and mineral substances
Apples contain from 100 to 180 mg of potassium and other important mineral substances such as iodine, phoshor, calcium, boron, fluorine, magnesium and iron.
