ORGANIC APPLE, powder
Botanical name: Malus domestica
Origin: USA / Canada / Chile
Ingredients: whole apple, less than 2% combined organic guar gum and organic sunflower lecithin
Qualities: Apple contains a wide range of antioxidants including quercetin, a type of flavonoid which may help regulate blood sugar by inhibiting the enzymes that digest carbohydrates, thus slowing down the release of sugars into the bloodstream.
Apple is a good source of vitamin C and it boosts the body's production of collagen (a protein found abundantly in the skin). Apples contain pectin, a soluble dietary fiber, which helps to maintain colon health. Apple powder may also help to protect against inflammatory bowel disease.
Further research suggests that both antioxidant compounds and pectin may play a role in promoting cardiovascular health and that pectin, in particular, may help to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Common Use: Apple powder tastes sweet and slightly tangy. It is excellent as a nutrition boost in smoothies or as a sweetener in baked goods such as pancakes, waffles, muffins, or any recipe that benefits from a little sweet apple taste.
Storage: Apple powder is hygroscopic and therefore comes packed with a silica pack. Keep well-sealed in cool, dark, and dry conditions.
