Our producer creates products made exclusively from reineta apples. This is a handmade production with the best flavor of Sintra. The apple occupies a very special place in Portuguese agriculture. The reineta apple is transformed, as tradition says. The manufacturing is completely homemade.
This apple with rough and reddish-brown skin contains a pulp, yellow in color and sweet in taste. This apple is used in the kitchen as an ingredient in salads, for example.
Applesauce is rich in calcium. Calcium is one of the main nutrients that promote the strength of bones and teeth. The high calcium content of reineta apples helps prevent diseases such as osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis. Fruit should be a part of regular diet in all age groups.
Another important benefit of reineta apples for health is that they help in the fight against oxygen free radicals that cause diabetes. The reineta apple is loaded with soluble fibers, the key to oscillations of blood sugar.
