Quick Nutrition Facts

Apples are a good low-fat source of dietary fiber and Vitamin C. The outstanding nutrients in apples are polyphenols, including flavonals (especially quercetin), catechins, anthocyanins (in red-skinned apples), and dozens of others. Polyphenols are the group of nutrients scientists are researching particuliarly for their cardiovascular and anti-cancer benefits. This is not surprising since most of the polyphenols in apples function as antioxidants.
