About this Food
There is deep and ancient wisdom in the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, because the humble apple is a superfood in the disguise of inexpensive, common everyday fruit. Apples are packed with vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols which are only recently being recognised for their impressive health benefits.
Apples are Low in Calories
It is hard to find fruit which are lower in calories than apples, mainly because fresh apples contain lots of water and fibre. The water and fibre makes up most of the weight of an apple, and since water has no calories and most of the fibre is indigestible, weight-for-weight apples have fewer calories than most other fruit. For example, bananas (91 calories per 100g) contain about 60% more calories than apples! In fact, you could eat 2 small 130g apples (146 calories) for the equivalent of one large 160g banana (146 calories).
To see calories and other nutrition information for different weight quantities, simply drag the slider to change the food weight. Accurate measurement of food weight requires the use of a food scale. However, you can estimate the weight of the food by comparing your hand to the food quantity. An amount equivalent to your thumb is about 30 grams, a flat palm is approximately 120 grams, and a bunched fist is roughly 240 grams.
