Should You Be Picking and Buying Organic Apples?
Are organic apples better for you than conventional apples? Find out how they rank from a nutrition and health standpoint.
Depending on where you live, apple season is either just around the corner—or already under way. As a dietitian, I love apples for their super-healthy nutrition profile: one medium apple delivers just 95 calories and 4 grams of fill-you-up fiber. Apples are also packed with disease-fighting antioxidants.
But because I work at EatingWell Magazine, people often ask me if they should be picking and buying organic apples.
It’s a great question! Here’s my two cents—as reported for EatingWell.
