    Yes, as long as it’s not overloaded with sugar. Applesauce has antioxidants, is a good source of fiber, and as it’s made with mainly apples, provides a lot of the same health benefits as they do.

    Yes it is associated with many health benefits. Researchers found that flavonoids found in apples may be capable of slowing down or stopping the proliferation of breast cancer cells. A large study showed that eating apples or apple sauce could decrease the risk of developing metabolic syndrome by twenty-seven percent. Apple and apple sauce eaters also appear to have a lower risk of developing hypertension and abdominal obesity, all risk factors for heart disease. Another study showed that eating a single serving of apple or applesauce each day may lower the risk of lung cancer. The ingredient thought to be important for preventing lung cancer is quercetin, an antioxidant bioflavonoid. Eating apples has also been associated with better lung function and a reduced risk of asthma. A Brazilian study showed that women who ate apples and pears on a daily basis experienced greater weight loss than those who ate oat cookies as a supplement. They also had lower blood sugar levels. Apples are a good source of pectin, a natural fiber that suppresses appetite. Other studies have shown that apples may reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes. Apples are also a good source of vitamin C and natural fiber. When choosing applesauce, look for one that’s organic with no added sugar to maximize health benefits. If you make your own at home, use the apples unpeeled so you can benefit from the additional flavonoids found in apple peels. Apples are also a good source of vitamin C and natural fiber.
