The word apple comes from the Old English aeppel.

Archaeologists have evidence of people eating apples as far back as 6500 B.C.

China produces more apples than any other country.

There are more than 7500 varieties of apples grown in the world. About 2500 varieties are grown in the United States.

Apples are low in calories; 100 g of fresh fruit slices provide only 50 calories. They are however contain no saturated fats or cholesterol; but rich in dietary fiber which helps prevent absorption of dietary LDL cholesterol in the gut. The dietary fibers also help protect the mucous membrane of the colon from exposure to toxic substances by binding to cancer causing chemicals in the colon.

One medium apple contains about 80 calories.

Apple skin contains more antioxidants and fiber than the flesh.

Apple fruit contains good quantities of vitamin-C and beta carotene. Vitamin C is a powerful natural antioxidant. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals from the body.

Tip:

Ever thought of why a Sliced apple turns brown on exposure to air? its due to conversion in iron form from ferrous oxide to ferric oxide. If you have to serve them sliced, rinse slices in water added with few drops of fresh lemon
