Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Juice, 10 Ounce (Pack of 12)
About this deal
For more polyphenols, opt for cloudy juice — which contains pulp — rather than clear, which has the pulp removed ( 7). For these reasons, the risk of taking in too many calories and gaining weight from drinking juice is greater, compared to eating whole apples. This is true for both adults and children ( 18, 21, 22). We have a special blend, which is one of the reasons why our juice tastes better,” Martinelli says. “Whenever there is a blind taste test and the judges don’t know the brand, we win hands-down all the time, and we’re very proud of that. It’s our claim to fame and the thing we’re most known for and the reason we have the premium position in the category.”

Some of this protection may be due to the antioxidant activity of the polyphenols found in the juice. They may shield your brain from damage by unstable molecules called free radicals ( 8, 13). The majority of store-bought apple juice is clear in appearance, meaning you can easily see through it. Organic varieties are more commonly available in the cloudy form. Just like the apple products, Martinelli’s makes its classic lemonade and sparkling lemonade the old-fashioned way with lemon juice, water and sugar and sans high-fructose corn syrup and preservatives. The sparkling lemonade uses less carbonation than the sparkling cider since carbonation tends to heighten lemon’s sour profiles.Our strategy was to develop a product line that could give us volume during our traditional slow time. If not fortified, apple juice provides around 2% of the RDI for this vitamin per serving. For comparison, one medium apple averages 9% of the RDI ( 1).

Be sure to drink diluted juice to rehydrate, as the high sugar content of full-strength juice can draw excess water into your gut and worsen diarrhea — particularly during recovery from illness ( 5, 6). Still, virtually all of the calories in 100% apple juice come from carbs — mostly from fructose and glucose, two naturally-occurring sugars ( 1). Cold is good,” Martinelli says. “Cold preserves quality, but it decreases efficiency and yield, thereby increasing cost. That’s the tradeoff. If you want higher volume, higher throughput [then] heat it up, but you’ll lose the quality.”If you drink apple juice, pair it with something that contains protein and healthy fat to reduce its impact on your blood sugar ( 26).
