As the nutritionist said, they are especially dangerous for gastritis and ulcers. She warned that an apple eaten on an empty stomach, like other foods with high acidity, causes irritation of the mucous membranes, or bloating. In humans, diseases can be aggravated due to the large amount of coarse fiber.
Alternatively, she suggested baking the apples. During heat treatment, the citric and malic acids contained in them are destroyed. But at the same time, pectin is retained in the product, which has a beneficial effect on the intestines.
And do not forget that apples are especially rich in vitamins, macro and microelements. However, not all components are absorbed by the body. In addition, according to nutritionists, apples contain substances that can have antioxidant effects on the body, especially the bright red varieties.
