Unsulphured Dried Diced Apple
Unsulphured diced apples are perfect as a snack for yourself or for the kids. Diced apples provide a nutritional boost of dietary fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and antioxidants. Enjoy them straight out of the bag, or mixed with baked goods, trail mix, or oatmeal. Our unsulphured dried apples contain no additives.
1) Rich in Fiber: A serving of unsulphured dried apples is an excellent source of dietary fiber. Apples contain both kinds of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Research suggests that soluble fiber can lower LDL cholesterol levels and regulate blood sugar levels. Insoluble fiber promotes a healthy digestive tract and keeps you feeling full longer.
2) Antioxidant Powerhouse: Flavonoids found in apples have been associated with reducing the risk of cancer and heart disease. A 2004 study led by Cornell researchers and published in the Journal of Food Science identified a specific flavonoid in apples known as quercetin that may protect the brain from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
3) Vitamin C and More: Diced apples are packed with vitamin C, but that’s just one reason to love snacking on them. A 2002 study published in The Lancet found that the quercetin found in apples has even stronger anti-cancer properties than vitamin C. The study’s lead researcher suggests that a diet rich in phytochemicals and vitamin C will reduce the risk of cancer. Diced apples provide both!
