The natural pressing process engages no pressing aids, no double washing, no enzymes, no preservatives and no added sulfites. Apple fiber are a source of high quality soluble and insoluble dietary fibers. Organic apple fiber consists of 35-40% of dietary fibers, which helps in improving digestive process in human body. According to United States Department of Agriculture, people in the U.S. consume more apples than any other fruit such as pineapples, oranges, grapes, and bananas.

Low fiber content in the body can lead to low absorption of nutrients, which will adversely affect the human body. For instance, pectin apple fiber increases the acidity in the large intestines, which helps in faster digestion process. Apple fiber are mineral-rich, which provides a sponge-like quality that helps in neutralizing the effects of acids and enzymes in the lower intestinal tracts. The fiber ratio of an unpeeled, raw apple is 70% insoluble and is 30% soluble as the skin acts as a more concentrated source of fiber than the flesh of the apple. According to United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) data, an apple without the skin consist of has 63 calories and just 1.7 grams of fiber. However, an unpeeled, small, raw apple of about 5 ounces provides 3.6 grams of fiber, which equates about 14% of the daily fiber intake. According to USDA, at 50, it is suggested that most women and men should have a daily dose of 25grams and 38grams of dietary fiber and older women and men need about 21 grams and 30 grams, respectively. Thus, this factor is expected to aid in growth of the market.
