Apples, raw, fuji, with skin

Fun Facts

  1. Fuji apples aren’t your average snack. They’re jam packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, all for a small amount of calories. Slice one up and dip it in peanut or almond butter for added protein. The combination of fiber and protein should help keep you feeling full until your next meal.
  2. A whole Fuji weighs about 5 1/2 ounces. As with most types of fresh produce, the largest percentage of calories in this apple comes from carbohydrates. Roughly 96 percent of the calories are from carbs, 1 percent stems from protein and the other 3 percent comes from fat.
  3. Fuji apples are packed with plenty of fiber. While the rigid outer skin offers insoluble fiber to keep your bowels moving, the soft inner part contains soluble fiber, which can help keep your cholesterol and sugar levels in normal ranges.
  4. Fuji apples have small amounts of several vitamins, most notably the B vitamins. You’ll get a little thiamin, folate, niacin, riboflavin, B-6 and pantothenic acid from a Fuji apple.
