APPLE JUICE CLARIFICATION
Fruit juices are popular beverages due to their nutritional and antioxidant properties. Apple juice in particular, is a healthy choice because it contains vitamin C and healthy polyphenol antioxidants that are essential for overall health.
Apple juice is processed and sold in many forms. Fresh apple juice or sweet cider is made from ripe fruit that has been pressed and bottled or packaged without preservatives directly into a bottle, called “direct juice”. This fresh apple juice or sweet cider is typically opaque or cloudy because it has not undergone a filtration process to remove coarse particles such as pulp. Clarified apple juice is juice that has been filtered to remove solids and appears more transparent.
