Ok, apples... with skin or without skin?

I have heard arguments for both. That the good nutrients are in the skin or just below. These are apples off my own trees, btw.

Unless it's dosed in pesticides, eat the WHOLE FOOD. You know, what Paleo focuses on.

Is there any data to back up the claim about nutrient profiles?

like you and samc have said, most of the nutrients are in the skin but also most of the toxins(applys to more than fruits/apples) so depends on how many toxins are applied to the apples vs nutrient content(value judgement)

also IIRC ive heard dave asprey say something like brown spots on fruits/vegetables should be removed as they can have a good amount of "mycotoxins", not sure on this though as he tends to be a tad eccentric.

I like the skin on some apples (Gala, Fuji etc), but can't stand the taste and thickness of Red/Green Delicious apples.

i would eat the whole thing. The body relies on all the fiber in a whole package apple to aid with slow and healthy sugar absorbtion.

Comparing nutrient profiles of apples with skin and without skin, they don't differ very much. And apples don't offer significant nutrient doses in the first place, so peeling them would probably be healthier because it gets rid of the majority of toxins. I just wish I was good at peeling.

I eat all of organic apples and peel conventional. If you are not spraying them I'd eat em all, except of course the core/seeds.
