Peach Nutrition Facts

Did you know a single, medium-sized Georgia Peach:

  • Makes a wonderful, fat-free snack
  • Delivers 10% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C
  • Provides two grams of fiber, most of it as cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber

Georgia Peaches are packed with natural goodness. They're not only delicious, but incredibly nutritious. Several major nutrients, including vitamins A (beta-carotene), C and potassium are packed into each Georgia peach. They're also an excellent source of fiber, good for blood sugar and keeping cholesterol low. A real plus for calorie counters, a medium-size Georgia peach contains only 38 calories, fewer that comparable-sized apples or pears.

In addition to being low-calorie, like all fruits and vegetables, Georgia peaches are cholesterol-free. Another plus: Georgia peaches are especially filling. Their 87% water content makes them a perfect between meal snack. But there's more. Georgia peaches also provide natural plant compounds called flavonoids, which research suggests may help prevent cancer and heart disease. So enjoy a Georgia peach! You'll be on your way to better health by getting at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
