Nutritional Benefits

Did you know that apples have the highest antioxidant content of Australia's most popular fruits? 

But what are antioxidants? Antioxidants are natural chemicals found both in your body and in the food you eat.

Antioxidants help neutralise dangerous free radicals which are highly reactive and unstable chemicals produced by your body as part of its normal metabolic processes. If not neutralised they can damage all cell types found in your body. It's thought that the actions of free radicals play a role in ageing and disease, including cancer.

This is where antioxidants come in. They protect your body's cells by ‘disarming' free radicals and reducing their harmful actions.
