Medium size apples have fewer calories than the bigger versions. For example, one that is three inches in diameter can have around 95 calories. The vitamins and minerals it has are the same as in the larger size, though obviously fewer in quantity.
In apples that are classed as small, i. E. Of a size around two and three quarter inches, calorific content will be around 77. It is worth noting that the content of minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorous, copper, potassium, magnesium, and manganese, is below five per cent of recommended daily intake. Also, they contain no fat, cholesterol, or sodium.
