Most consumers are not particularly concerned about the storage of fruits and vegetables and so many healthy ingredients are often lost.

With over 30 vitamins and trace elements as well as many other valuable minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, magnesium or iron, an average-sized apple is one of the fruit types rich in vitamins. The healthy ingredients can be found mainly in and directly under the shell. 85 percent of an apple consists of water. Its grape and fructose quickly provide the body with energy.

What you should pay attention to when buying and storing Pressure or foul spots indicate old fruit. But dried stems can also be an indication of freshness that is no longer too great. The fridge's vegetable compartment is recommended for storage. Apples like it cool and moist. If there is no space, the fruit bowl can also be used. It is important that this is covered so that insects are kept away. Flies like to suck the fruit juice and lay their eggs in open places, which can lead to faster spoilage. The consumer information service also advises buyers to protect the fruit from strong sunlight, since vitamins are quickly destroyed and broken down. After purchase, apples should be grown directly and rubbed dry to keep the mineral content high. The bowl in particular should also be consumed. (fr)
