Fuji apples are a large, sweet, and crisp apple variety that makes them a favorite of fruit lovers around the world.
Ever heard that "an apple a day keeps the doctor away?" Well, research indicates that may be far more true than we previously thought. In research published in the Nutrition Journal by researchers at Cornell University, the authors found that apples were associated with reduced risk of many diseases and illnesses. Based on the studies, the authors concluded that apples may play a large role in reducing the risk of a wide variety of chronic disease and with maintaining a healthy lifestyle in general. They went on to report that apples are consistently associated with reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, asthma, and Type II diabetes when compared to other fruits and vegetables.

The freeze drying process uses high-tech equipment to freeze the fruit quickly, while under a vacuum. This reduces the water in the fruit to ice, then to a vapor that is removed from the fruit. What's left is a light, crispy fruit snack that retains all of the nutritional elements of fresh fruit. These light, crispy snacks can be packaged into convenient, healthy sized bags designed for you to take with you on the go. You'll always be able to enjoy the natural goodness of an apple, but never have to worry about bruised, damaged, or mushy fruit again!
Baked apple chips and baked apple crisps use raw apples, but they're prepared and cooked. Because the baking process removes the natural flavor, more flavors are generally added to the mix. Flavors that come from ingredients that may or may not be good for you. In addition, the cooking process burns the fruit and changes the nutritional value of the fruits.
Well, we all know that fried foods aren't exactly good for you - and fried fruit is no exception to this rule. Fried apple snacks add loads of fat and calories to the otherwise good-for-you apple!
Dehydrated fuji apples can be found on many store shelves. However, dehydrating any food only works if you add preservatives into the snack to help make it last longer.
Sweetened dried does just what you think it does. It adds sugar. If you're looking for a clean diet, sweetened dried may not be the best choice.
Of these choices, only freeze dried doesn't add preservatives, doesn't add fat or calories. It doesn't add preservatives or sugar. It leaves the fruit's nutrition untouched and just as healthy for you as raw, fresh fruit.
