Apple juice is one of the most popular types of juice.
There are two main types — cloudy and clear. Cloudy apple juice contains pulp, while clear apple juice has had the pulp removed.
A 1-cup (240-ml) serving of apple juice provides:

- Fiber: 0.5 grams
- Sugar: 24 grams
- Potassium: 5% of the DV
- Vitamin C: 3% of the DV
Apple juice is a moderate source of potassium, a mineral that acts as an electrolyte and is important for nerve signaling and heart health.
Although it’s naturally low in vitamin C, many commercial varieties are enriched with vitamin C, providing up to 106% of the DV per cup (240 ml).
Furthermore, it’s high in antioxidant compounds like flavonoids and chlorogenic acid, which help neutralize cell-damaging free radicals.
Among the different types, cloudy apple juice is the highest in antioxidants. In one study, it was found to have 2–5 times the antioxidant content of clear apple juice.
