In 2019, apples topped the list of the most heavily consumed fruits in the U.S. The bright, crisp fruits come in more than 7,000 varieties. Not only can apples be enjoyed fresh, but dried apples have their own set of advantages.
Eating dried apples can help you more easily achieve your daily recommended fruit intake. A half-cup serving has 13 percent of the daily recommended intake of fiber. Not only does fiber help prevent constipation, but it slows digestion, preventing insulin spikes.
Therefore, moderate amounts of dehydrated apples are safe for diabetics. Fiber-rich snacks help you feel full in between meals. If you are trying to lose weight, apple slices can stave off hunger in between meals. Apples are also rich in potassium, which supports nerve and brain function. They also have iron and trace amounts of manganese, selenium, and copper.
While you can enjoy dried apples as a snack on their own, they can also enhance sweet and savory recipes. Add a few slices as a fiber-rich topping for your morning oatmeal. Combine with condiments you'd use to flavor pork and poultry. Dehydrated apple slices are a sweet addition to trail mixes.
