Tip of the Day

Which Apple?

Apple juice, applesauce and whole apples all taste great, but which one has the most fiber? The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend women get 25 grams of fiber per day and 38 grams per day for men, but most Americans do not consume enough fiber.

A whole apple of any variety with the peel on has more fiber than an apple without the peel. As a whole apple becomes juice or applesauce, its fiber content changes, too:

  • 1 whole medium apple with peel — 3.3 grams fiber
  • 1 whole medium apple without peel — 1.7 grams fiber
  • ½ cup applesauce — 1.5 grams fiber
  • ¾ cup apple juice — 0.2 grams fiber

For more information on including more fiber in your diet, along with building a smarter plate, consult a registered dietitian in your area and visit our Eat Right Nutrition Tips
