General information

The apple is a pomaceous fruit of the apple tree, species Malus domestica in the rose family Rosaceae. It is one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits. The tree is small and deciduous, reaching 3 to 12 metres tall, with a broad, often densely twiggy crown. The tree originated from Central Asia, where its wild ancestor is still found today and there are more than 7,500 varieties. An apple is a pome fruit (false fruit).

Health Benefits

The apple can be defined as a versatile drug. It contains minerals and micronutrients (potassium, sulfur, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, iodine, zinc, manganese and selenium). Among the organic acids found in apples maleic acid plays an essential role in transforming components into energy. Tannic acid has an astringent action; galaturonic acid helps to balance the bacterial flora. It’s a resource of vitamins such as A, C and those of group B. The presence of flavinoids reinforces the walls of blood vessels. Rich in pectin, a soluble fibre that limits the absorption of sugar into the blood stream, it also reduces cholesterol and promotes good digestion. Diuretic and blood purgative, the apple disinfects the intestine and helps eliminate certain carcinogenic substances.
