It’s no wonder they’re a symbol of temptation- apples are almost too good to be true.
With new research revealing they are an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamin C and fibre, as well as being fat- free and containing no cholesterol, the humble apple should be blushing with pride. A good sized apple (200g) provides a third of your total daily requirements of Vitamin C, and has a s much fibre as three slices of multi grain bread.
A particularly healthy option for urban types, a weekly intake of five apples or more can help protect the lungs from atmospheric pollutants and irritants, including nitrogen dioxide and cigarette smoke. Apples are also high in antioxidants, which slow the ageing process and help prevent the DNA damage behind diseases such as cancer.
With summer on the way, choose the best of the season’s pick, such as Pink Lady, Golden delicious, Fuji, Sundowner and Lady William.
