Nutritional benefits of the Arctic Advantage™
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.
Nonbrowning apples are more attractive and convenient so they’re more likely to be eaten, meaning fewer in the trash because of 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 has that “first bite” look, texture, and taste.
