With only 80 calories, zero fat and 15% of the Daily Value for fiber apples are a filling snack and a natural, guilt-free way to satisfy a sweet tooth.  Be sure not to peel this fruit before eating as apple polyphenols (a class of antioxidants) are more highly concentrated in the skin and have been linked to a number of potential health benefits.
 

Why choose organic apples?

Apples are #1 on the Environmental Working Group’s “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides,” a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally. You can lower your dietary exposure to pesticides substantially by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables, and choosing organic for those items instead.

When you choose Earthbound Farm certified organic apples (and apple slices), you’re getting fruit that’s been raised without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using farming methods that regenerate the soil and protect the health of the land and the people who work on it. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic apples taste better, too!

WhatsOnMyFood.org from the Pesticide Action Network shows you searchable results for fruits like apples and a wide range of other organic and conventional foods. It’s an easy-to-use and empowering tool for learning about pesticide residues and their health effects for all of us.
