Hi Nixodian,

Welcome to the Diet community and thank for the great question!

I've always thought that the majority of the fruit or vegetable is found in the skin, or at least the closer to the surface the better.

But, since I couldn't find any articles about it when I did my search, I'd encourage you to ask your question on the Food & Cooking community . They might have a better idea and our expert, Elaine Magee is great about that kind of stuff!

Hope you find your answer and please come back and share with us what you find out!

believe apple skin has a rich fiber content. I think its safe to eat it as long as you wash it in running water so make it clean.
