Apple crisp, the popular crunchy snack that has gone on to become a staple in the lives of so many Brits, is becoming increasingly popular around the country as the health benefits of eating it have become clearer.
This week, a new survey found that a third of people in the UK think it is safe to eat apples in moderation, a rise from a quarter in 2015.
The survey, carried out by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), found that 70% of those who responded said they had tried apples in the past month.
However, it found that only 29% of people surveyed said they would eat a single apple each day, compared with 46% of respondents who said they were only tempted to eat one.
It was also found that 40% of adults surveyed thought the health effects of eating apples were “extremely unlikely” to change, compared to just 22% who said the same of eating dairy or meat.
The RCGP also found people were more likely to buy apple cider in large quantities, which the RCGP said had “potentially long-term” health benefits.
Apple cider is a natural source of antioxidants, which are found in all types of fruit, such as apples, and can help reduce cholesterol levels and improve circulation.
However the RCP said the results suggested that people were not aware of the health risks of eating apple cider.
The Royal College has previously called for a ban on all food products containing alcohol in the NHS, and has also called for the establishment of a ‘healthy’ alcohol drink category.
This may be because the RCPA has previously warned about the risk of “alcohol poisoning” when people eat apples, or because they are not aware that they can “drink” cider.”
People are also unaware that there is a link between consumption of apples and heart disease and stroke.”
