Whether you plan to bake an apple pie, mash some applesauce or just want the satisfying crunch of a fresh apple as an afternoon snack, the McIntosh apple can be just what the doctor ordered. This red and green apple has a sweet taste and plenty of juice. Understanding its approximate caloric value helps you keep within your meal plan.

An Apple a Day

The calories in a McIntosh apple depend on its size. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a medium-sized apple with its skin has about 95 calories. Eating an unpeeled apple is moderately higher in calories than a peeled apple, but don't rush to peel your apple. An apple's peel provides much of the fruit's fiber, however, and fiber-rich foods do not raise your blood glucose level.
