of us know the importance of antioxidants - those little superheroes
that help our bodies neutralize free radicals that otherwise reap havoc
on our bodies. A new Polish study reveals that for those who consume
apple juice, the cloudier the apple juice the greater the concentration
of antioxidants present. In fact, researchers found the cloudy juice
contained up to four times the level of antioxidants. So what's the
reason most apple juice sold is clear? Clear juice is more appealing to
consumers and has a longer shelf life. It should be noted that as good
as the cloudy apple juice is as compared to the clear, no apple juice
beats the nutrients and antioxidants consumed by eating a fresh apple
with the skin.
