One of the most popular snack fruits, apples supply vitamin C as well as some potassium. Eat the peel to get the full measure of fibre.
*Some of the fibre in apples is pectin, which may help lower blood cholesterol.
*Apples should be stored in the refrigerator. At room temperature they quickly begin to decline in quality; their flesh becomes mushy and they lose some of their vitamin content.
*Dried apples and pears have concentrated natural sugars, making them a quick source of energy. They are also a good source of potassium.
