A recent study showed that apples carry a large number of bacteria. A team of researchers at the University of Graz for Technology and Engineering in Austria measured the size of one apple of a bacterium and found that it contained more than 100 million bacteria.

The study, published in Frontier's MicrobiologyFrontiers in Microbiology Specialized in microbiology, explained that these bacteria are particularly concentrated in the seeds of the apple and its pulp.

"The bacteria, fungus and viruses present in our food live temporarily in our intestines, which means that these microorganisms are important for the intestinal microbial," said Gabrielle Burge, co-author of the study, on the importance of the bacteria we eat through our diet."He said.

The researcher explained that the boiling of foods kills most of these germs, and therefore that the human consumption of fruit and vegetables without cooking is a very important source of bacteria useful for stomach.

The researchers conducted a study comparing organic apples grown without the use of fertilizers or pesticides, And the traditional organic non-organic apples, and researchers found that freshly grown organic apples contain on average more diverse bacterial clusters, making it better for intestines compared to normal inorganic apples.

The researchers hope that their next step will be a study of the extent to which the diversity of bacteria in food leads to the diversity of microbes in the intestines to achieve health benefits.

"Microbes and antioxidants contained in food can someday coexist with vitamins and minerals in the information on food product packaging to guide consumers," said study author Bergt Wasserman."He said.
