You can dry apples on your own, but also do not deprive yourself of the opportunity to try high-quality dried apple snacks, which are obtained under special production conditions, when dried at low temperatures with the preservation of vitamins and reaching a certain degree of dryness, up to a crispy plate.

It is worth noting that dried apples in some cases have clear advantages over fresh ones: useful substances do not disappear after the apple dries, and eating a handful of dried fruits is often easier than eating 2 whole apples.

Pectin in dried apples

The benefits of dried apples in the abundance of fiber. Fiber in reasonable amounts is useful for the gastrointestinal tract: it improves digestion, cleanses the intestines, normalizes stools, speeds up metabolism, prevents the absorption of cholesterol from the digestive tract into the blood (the component of apple pulp, pectin, is responsible for the latter).

In the peel of an apple, for example, there is a lot of cellulose, and in the pulp - pectin, all this is dietary fiber; cellulose is an insoluble dietary fiber (it is not digested or absorbed by our body), and pectin is soluble, together they play an important role in overall health. Many fruits contain pectin, but apples are especially rich in it. In addition to a beneficial effect on the digestive system, pectin and cellulose have a healing effect on the skin - improve its condition in all respects.

If your daily diet is rich in fruits and vegetables, then you get all the benefits described with fresh fruits and vegetables. But if you are not a fan of fresh plant foods, then dried apples compensate for the benefits of fresh fruit for the body.

It should also be noted that when using dietary fiber, you should not forget to drink at least 2 liters of water per day. Dried apples inherit from fresh ascorbic acid, B vitamins, as well as trace elements: potassium, iron, manganese, selenium.
