I love peaches– white ones, yellow ones, big ones and very big ones. Looking at their deep gold color , I was sure that they were bursting with a smorgesbord of vitamins and fiber. Not really. Delicious and low in calories, they have some vitamin A , a drop of vitamin C and that’s pretty much it. I was certain that their shaggy sweet pulp would have a truck load of fiber– but no such luck.
July and August are peak peach months and I really enjoy eating a ripe peach on a hot day. But from an anti-aging perspective, there are other fruits with a heavier nutritional payload. One final thought- peaches are one of those foods that tend to be heavier in pesticides. If you eat a lot of them ( eg every day) you might want to choose organic peaches.
