Organic Santana Apple from Real Foods. Santana is a modern apple from the Netherlands, with a pleasant flavour and bred specifically for reduced levels of proteins which can cause allergic reactions for some people, if you have had problems with sensitivities to apples it may well be worth trying this one. Santana was developed at the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands, and is derived from Elstar, to which it has a passing resemblance. Santana is a small or medium-sized apple. It is usually a deep red flushed colour, over a yellow background, and the colour is streaked rather than solid.
Apples are a good source of dietary fibre and vitamin C. Most of the apple's fibre is contained in its skin, as is the majority of its quercetin, a potent antioxidant. For more information on the history and nutrition of apples follow this link to our apples article.
Santana Apples are excellent eaters and are usually best eaten raw or sliced into salads. They are deliciously scented and have a delicately perfumed flavour.
