Here are some random thoughts on apples that you may not have considered….Image

Sometimes when a person eats fruit, they end up with a bloated stomach. This is a sign that the fruit is fermenting while it travels through the digestive system. Apples, however, contain a malic and tartaric acids which prevent them from fermenting in your stomach so they are less likely than other fruits to cause bloating.

Apples are best stored in the refrigerator. Thy do better in the dark and in cooler temperatures. Like other fruits, apple skins give off ethylene gas. When storing apples in the refrigerator; keep them away from your carrots because this gas will give your carrots a bitter taste. (Robinson, 2013).
