  • The new GMO apples don't turn brown but they are dangerous to eat. They can kill you.

      Apple seeds can kill you if you eat enough of them. They contain cyanide.
  • Perhaps this might help: When an apple is cut (or bruised), oxygen is introduced into the injured plant tissue. When oxygen is present in cells, polyphenol oxidase (PPO) enzymes in the chloroplasts rapidly oxidize phenolic compounds naturally present in the apple tissues to o-quinones, colorless precursors to brown-colored secondary products.
  • Almost everything we eat turns brown eventually - just look in your toilet! lol apples turn brown because of a chemical reaction that occurs when an enzyme inside of the fruit comes in contact with oxygen. You can slow this reaction by dipping them in ACV (apple cider vinegar) or any strong citrus juice like pineapple or lemon.
