What is the nutrient value of a peach?

Answer: Peaches are a highly nutritious food source when eaten raw.  They are a good source of energy, carbohydrates, dietary fiber, iron, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin B (folate) and vitamin C.   Peaches are also a rich source of bioactive compounds including phenolic acids, anthocyanins, flavonoids, and procyanidins.  Detailed information for a 100 g sample of raw peach (approx. 1 medium sized peach, about 2 1/2 inch diameter) from the USDA National Nutrient Database can be found here: PeachNutrientPer100g.pdf [120kb]
