Wave, Fall 2009

As the cool weather arrives and the days get shorter, we can no longer deny that fall is upon us. One of the best parts of fall is the crisp, juicy apples.

This crunchy fruit is not only tasty and refreshing, it's also packed with vitamin C and soluble fibre, the kind that helps to reduce bad cholesterol. In fact, a single apple can provide up to 10 per cent of the Vitamin C you need daily and 12 per cent of your daily fibre requirement. The apple's firm, white flesh even helps to clean your teeth.

Apples also contain phytonutrients, naturally occurring plant chemicals that have been linked to a reduction in chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer. Be sure to eat the peel along with the apple to get the most nutritional benefits.

Red Delicious, Gala, Fuji, Honeycrisp, McIntosh - try one of the 100 varieties of apples grown in North America today!
