Apples to Apples

Apples seem to be the quintessential Fall fruit. They're crisp, delicious, and come in an array of varieties and colors.

But remember--- not all forms of apples are equal. To ensure that you’re getting all the nutritional benefits from apples, be sure to eat the peel and pulp. A whole medium apple has 4.4 g of fiber; an apple without the skin has 2.1 g of fiber; applesauce has 2.7 g per one cup; apple juice has only 0.5 g fiber per one cup. In other words, eating the actual fruit is your rule-of-thumb for optimal nutrition!

Enjoy the Fall season to the fullest! Eat your apples!
