As the old saying goes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away
. Apples are a good source of potassium, folic acid, beta-carotene and vitamin C, and they contain B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and zinc. They also have antioxidants that improve immune function and prevent heart disease and some cancers, and aid in the reduction of high cholesterol and blood sugar. It's reassuring to know that my apple sauce
is full of apple goodness.
