Apple Nutrition Facts
Arctic® apples have the same nutrition as their conventional counterparts – an Arctic® Granny and an Arctic® Golden have comparable nutrient levels as the varieties from which they were developed. However, the convenience of Arctic® apples can potentially result in more apples being eaten overall!
The U.S. government-approved Nutrition Facts panel tells a great story about apples’ nutrition and health benefits. Here are the key facts about one medium apple (154 grams/5.5 ounces – about the size of a baseball):
- Excellent source of fiber (5 g)
- Fat-free, saturated fat-free and trans fat-free
- Cholesterol free
- Contains Vitamin C (5% of daily recommended value)
- Contains heart-healthy potassium (170 mg)
Nutritional benefits of the Arctic Advantage™
While Arctic® apples are no different until you bite, slice, or bruise the fruit – there’s more to the Arctic Advantage™ than meets the eye! An apple’s browning reaction typically “burns up” healthful antioxidants, and Arctic® apples avoid this browning reaction!
More importantly, nonbrowning apples that are more attractive and convenient are more likely to get eaten, meaning fewer will end up in the trash due to superficial browning or bruising. Our goal is to help support healthy diets by boosting apple consumption, and with Arctic® apples, it’s easier to ensure that every bite of an apple has that “first bite” look, texture and taste!
