To Peal, or Not to Peal, That is the Question.

Whether ’tis healthier in the body to ingest
Both the skin and flesh of seasonal fresh fruits,
Or to take knife to such skin and eat the flesh alone . . .

Well, the short answer is that the skin of fruit has vitamins and nutrients, and that you’ll benefit from eating both the skin and the flesh. For example, here are the nutritional values for a red apple with and without the skin: fiber 5 vs. 3 grams, calcium 13 vs. 11 milligrams, and potassium 239 vs. 194 milligrams. Also, resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes and other fruits.

So, for maximum health benefits (assuming no dietary issues), don’t peal — eat the skin and the flesh. This was reported in AskWell of the New York Times.
