Apple Juice

>Due to the complex and costly equipment required to extract and clarify juice from apples in large volume, apple juice is normally commercially produced. In the United States, unfiltered fresh apple juice is produced by smaller operations in areas of high apple production, in the form of unclarified apple cider. Apple juice is one of the most common fruit juices in the world, with world production led by China, Poland, the United States, and Germany.

Apple juice is a fruit juice made by the maceration and pressing of apples. The resulting expelled juice may be further treated by enzymatic and centrifugal clarification to remove the starch and pectin, which holds fine particulate in suspension, and then pasteurized for packaging in glass, metal or aseptic processing system containers, or further treated by dehydration processes to a concentrate.

Apple Juice is rich in nutrients such as Vitamins A, B, C and minerals such as iron, potassium, phosphorus, silicon, chlorine etc.

Apple juice reduces bad cholesterol levels and enhances the cardiovascular health of a person. The risk of getting heart disease is reduced significantly by drinking apple juice.

    Pineapple Juice

    The juice of the pineapple is served as a beverage, and is also as a main ingredient in such cocktails as the PiƱa colada.

    Pineapple Juice is the sweet juice extracted from pineapples. It is sold unsweetened and sweetened in cans or bottles and as frozen concentrate, and used in many drink recipes, from ordinary mixed drinks to high proof punches.

    One of the healthiest things you can do for your digestive system is to drink pineapple juice. Pineapple juice is loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients, such as vitamins C and B6, as well as potassium and magnesium. But a healthier digestive tract is only one of the many health benefits one can achieve by making pineapple juice a daily staple.

    When choosing pineapple juice, fresh juice will always be the better choice. You can get some of the benefits of fresh juice when drinking the processed version; however, there is usually a lot of excess sugar added during the processing and canning of the juice. Raw or fresh juice is free of any extra sugar, synthetics and preservatives and will ensure you receive the optimum amount of vitamins and nutrients.

Vitamin C acts as powerful antioxidant against harmful environmental toxins, improves protection of the immune system and reduces the risk of hypertension. The most valuable ingredient of lemon, next to vitamin C, is citric acid, of which it contains 7.2 per cent. Lemon contains more potassium than apple or grapes, which is beneficial to the heart.
