The moisture level in apples must be closely monitored and cannot exceed 3% if mold growth is to be prevented and if the fruit is to reach its desired semi-dry texture.
Another considerable challenge in dried apple production arises from the presence of hard apple core fragments. Great care must be given to ensure that no hard fragments from the apple core remain in the final product.

The well-known proverb “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” points to the benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and to the particular virtues of apples.
To obtain the maximum nutrition from apples, it is important to consume them whole rather than peeled or as apple juice. This is because a significant portion of the apple’s beneficial antioxidants are stored in its skin. Apple skins also contain compounds called triterpenoids, which have been shown to exhibit cancer-preventing properties.
