Study shows fruit juice benefits
Apples contain high levels of
Cloudy apple juice is better for
you than clear varieties, say researchers.
Polish scientists found the levels
of antioxidants which protect against heart disease and cancer are almost
double in cloudy apple juice.
The antioxidants, called
polyphenols, are also found in red wine, berries and dark chocolate.
In the Journal of the Science of
Food and Agriculture, the researchers said the manufacturing process led to
fewer polyphenols in clear apple juice.
The researchers at the
Agricultural University of Wroclaw measured the amount of procyanidins, the
main compounds containing polyphenols in apples, in two varieties of clear
and cloudy apple juices.

They also measured the antioxidant
activity in the four juices.
Juice made from the Champion
variety of apples was found to have higher levels of polyphenols than juice
made from Idared apples.
But overall cloudy apple juice,
which contains more pulp, was found to have higher concentrations of
antioxidants and showed more antioxidant activity in experiments.
There was a four-fold difference
in polyphenols between the best and worst juices.
Study leader, Dr Jan Oszmianski,
said they had found they same results for clear and pureed or cloudy
"I recommend cloudy juices as
they contain more polyphenols and pectins.
"Health benefits are expected
mainly in the case of cloudy apple juice consumption." Polyphenols
Previous research has shown that
polyphenols contained in fruit and vegetables help to protect against
diseases such as cancer, by mopping up free radicals which can cause damage
Apples themselves contain a wide
variety of polyphenols but when processed into apple juice some of these may
The manufacturing process used to
make clear apple juice, which include using an enzyme to break down the
pectin in apple cell walls and spinning to remove pulp, considerably
decreases the levels of polyphenols in the end product, Dr Oszmianski
Dr Paul Kroon, senior research
scientist at the Institute of Food Research in Norwich said clear apple
juices tended to be more popular and are more stable giving them a longer
"A lot of polyphenols are
lost when you make a clear juice. It could also be that because you're
retaining that cloudiness and pectin there's the additional benefit of fibre.

health, you should go for a non-clarified apple juice."
