An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right?  But what about apple juice? It has definitely fallen from doctors' popularity in recent years, since it has been thought to contain a lot of sugar and little nutrition.  So for those who love apple juice, they may look for a healthier version that could turn some of that bad press around.

"Nutrition-wise, I never thought about apple juice too much," said apple juice drinker Clifton Hill.  "I like the taste of it.  It's just something to drink."

But apple juice does have some nutritional value because it contains antioxidant.  However, the amount of antioxidant it contains depends on the type of apple juice.  A recent study in Poland shows cloudier apple juice contains more antioxidant than clear apple juice.

"[Antioxidant] Protects your body against the free radicals that occur. The damage that occurs to our cells and the body net that happens over time," said registered dietician Paula Vandelicht.

The researchers found the cloudy apple juice contained high amounts of an antioxidant called polyphenols.  The cloudy juice doesn't undergo any additional filtering, opposed to clear juice which does.

"It has more apple solids in it which you're getting more of the actual fruit itself," Vandelicht said.

"I think there are a lot of attractive qualities in that," said Crystal Vandoren.

"Apple juice is no longer just a kids drink," said registered dietician Judy Arnet. "Apples and apple juice have a lot to contribute to our whole diet.
