Mennonite Co-Op (Elmira, ON)

Delicious and crunchy, apples are  one of the most popular and favorite fruits. This wonderful fruit is packed with rich phytonutrients.  Certain antioxidants in apples have health promoting and disease prevention properties, and thereby, truly justifying the adage, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

Apples may help reduce the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Apples are one of the healthiest foods a person can eat. They are high in fiber and vitamin C, and they are also low in calories, have only a trace of sodium, and no fat or cholesterol.
