1 Apple Contains 100 Million Bacterial Cells : New Study


“Putting together the averages for each apple component, we estimate a typical 240 g apple contains roughly 100 million bacteria,” Professor Berg said from a researcher at the Graz University of Technology.

Interestingly, fruit pulp and seeds were bacterial hot spots, while the peel was less colonized.
“Freshly harvested, organically managed apples harbor a significantly more diverse, more even and distinct bacterial community, compared to conventional ones,” the researcher said.
