Apples are very nutritious fruits/ snacks that provide healthy benefits to the body.  An average small/ medium apple of various varieties (About 154g) supplies:
Energy: 80-100Kcal
Carbohydrate: 22.01-24.05g
Sugars (out of the carbohydrate): 16-18.45g
Fiber: 3.3-4.9g
Potassium: 160-172mg
Phosphorus: 21mg.

No wonder the adage * An Apple A day KEEPS the DOCTOR AWAY* has some truth in it. This can be attributed to its rich potassium/ fiber content which is good for the heart.
