South Tyrolean apples
An apple a day keeps the doctor away
Apples are - not only because of Adam and Eve - one of the oldest cultured fruit known to humans. King Ramses already valued the medicinal properties of this round fruit. It is said that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Apples contain 85% water, hardly any fat, but are full of valuable components such as vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances. Their vitamin C content is particularly important: the average of 2 mg/100 g correspond to 15% of the recommended daily requirements. The constituents of this wonderful fruit fight against free radicals and therefore slow down the ageing process, keep the skin toned, reduce susceptibility to illness in general and to diabetes and cancer in particular, and can help prevent Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Because of this and because apples are simply part of South Tyrol and the holiday destinations Laives-Bronzolo-Vadena, everything here focuses on this round fruit.
