Beta carotene and Vitamin C which are natural antioxidants are also widely present in apples. This fruit is also a source of vitamin B complex such as thianmin, riboflavin, and pyridoksin or vitamin B6. There is also a very small amount of phosphorus, potassium and calcium.
So much nutritional content in apples, so it is not wrong if there is a proverb "An apple a day keeps your doctor away" because it is so popular.
But do you know if it turns out the greatest nutritional content of apples actually exist on the skin. That's why eating apples should be with their skin. But unfortunately, in our market a lot of outstanding apples imported candle-lined. Layer of wax on imported apple fruit was deliberately given so that fruit more durable. Given the very long journey of apple distribution. Most of the wax-imported fruits come from mainland China, but there is also the possibility of apples from Europe and America also coated by candles by naughty traders.
Usually apple-shaped candle-shaped apple looks more dull, more pale and also not bright, but the outside look so fragrant tempting. In addition there is also like white powder in the layer of skin. It is also found in other imported fruits such as pears. Worse yet, this wax layer will not dissolve, even though the fruit has been washed with running water though.
The waxy substances can not be digested by digestive enzymes and will be directly taken to the colon. If consumed in excess, can cause diarrhea. And that more worries again if the used is not a wax made from natural, but from the material that can not be eaten petro and contain carcinogenic substances that can trigger cancer. To be safe, although it will reduce the benefits of vitamins, fruit should be peeled before eating.
