Transcript:Quick Tips: Apple Cider vs. Juice in CookingHi I'm Stephanie Gallagher for About.com. You know a lot of people get confused about the differences between apple cider and apple juice.
Apple Cider Vs. Juice in CookingThey normally look different. Apple cider is typically thicker, cloudier and may have bits of apple pulp in it, while apple juice is normally thinner and clearer.Apple juice is also typically pasteurized and vacuum-sealed. This allows it to stay fresh on supermarket shelves longer, whereas apple cider is often not pasteurized, so it must be refrigerated. Then again, sometimes bottled juice products are labeled "apple cider," and they are, in fact, pasteurized.
Additional Information About Apple Cider Vs. Juice in CookingSome people claim that cider is only made from apples that are picked early whereas juice can be made from any apple. Well, there's no apple drink police we can consult to determine if that's true, but the bottom line is for cooking, you can use the products interchangeably.
