Apple juice guide: discover the health benefits and learn the recipes


Apples are good for your health and can be a great addition to your diet.

If you look at the list of ingredients of ready-made juices on the market, you can spot the presence of apple juice on various labels. This happens because the drink derived from apples has pectin in its composition, which guarantees sweetness to the juice without the need to add sugar. Additionally, apple juice also contains water, fiber, vitamin C and potassium.




Nutritionist Edvânia Soares, graduated in clinical sports nutrition, explains the numerous benefits of the drink and gives advice on how to introduce it into everyday life. Watch!

What are the benefits of apple juice?

Apples are rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals and have antioxidant properties thanks to quercetin, which helps improve circulation and fluid retention and the body’s anti-inflammatory action. Consuming it with the peel maximizes the benefits of the fruit, including a greater sense of satiety.

Among its many benefits, apples also help prevent diseases, such as chronic heart and circulatory problems, type 2 diabetes and oncological diseases. If consumed in the form of juice, it brings numerous benefits, such as hydration and energy, thanks to carbohydrates.

Can you drink apple juice every day?

Despite the numerous benefits of apple juice, diversifying your diet is always the best choice. Therefore, consuming 150 to 200 ml of juice per day is not a problem, but it is interesting to include different types of foods in your daily life to have a richer nutritional load.

And remember: it is important to always drink apple juice with meals, because other foods can control the concentration of sugar in the blood, which can increase during consumption.

Who can’t drink apple juice?

The high sugar content present in apple juice implies some restrictions on its consumption. In the case of people suffering from digestive problems, such as irritable bowel syndrome, apple fiber and sugar naturally lead to an imbalance of the intestinal microbiota. For more sensitive people, this can cause irritation of the mucous membranes.

Another group to pay attention to are diabetics. In this context it is necessary to monitor the consumption of apple juice also due to the natural sugar present in its composition.

Apple juice in the diet: how to prepare different mixtures

The best way to include apple juice in your diet is as part of a “juice detox” in the morning. The ideal is to mix it with ginger, dark leaves, cinnamon and other fruits so that your sugar consumption is balanced.

Interesting combinations with kale – which does not alter the flavor of the juice and, at the same time, enhances its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action – and celery – which helps improve fluid retention, as well as carrots and courgettes – which also they do not change the flavor, but increase the nutritional content of the drink.

To help you on a daily basis, the nutritionist offers two unmissable and delicious recipes that can be made with both fresh apples and whole apple juice.
