Browning results from the fresh fruit being exposed to air and being affected by the oxygen in the air. • High-acid fruits do not brown when exposed to air. • Browning is not a reversible process.
To prevent browning, cover the fruit immediately after peeling it with a juice containing a high Vitamin C content, or salad dressing.
CYANIDE IN APPLES • "Amygdalin" is a cyanogenic glycoside compound which commonly occurs in the seeds or kernels of apples, almonds, apricots, cherries, and peaches • Normally, the presence of amygdalin alone in these seeds and kernels is not dangerous, however, cyanide can be formed when the seed is crushed and moistened. • Acute intoxication and death have been reported in children following the ingestion of apricot seeds, which are capable of releasing 217 mg of cyanide per 100 g of moist seed.
