Apples and Bacteria

Did you know that an apple contains more than one million bacteria? This is what scientists at Graz University of Technology have found out. The consumption of apples is therefore not only so healthy because of its abundance of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, fiber and secondary plant substances. The intestinal flora also benefits from the various bacteria, which are found in large quantities especially in the core, seeds and pulp. 

In a study it was also examined whether there is a difference between apples from conventional cultivation and organic apples. The result was clear: the organic apples showed significantly more diverse bacteria communities. So enjoy the organic apple and stay healthy!
