If you’re looking for the healthiest apple juice, you may not realise how much of the nutritional value is removed during the traditional commercial production process. To produce commercial apple juice, whole apples undergo washing, crushing, and filtering to extract the juice, which is typically pasteurised for extended shelf life outside the refrigerator.
What’s missing in traditional apple juice? The most nutritious components of a fresh apple – the peel and pulp!
Guess what each bottle of Upple® contains?
Fresh and nutritious apple peel & pulp, in addition to the juice! Crafted from our family’s hand-picked, orchard-fresh cored apples, Upple® is Australia’s inaugural whole drinkable apple.
This means that every bottle of Upple®, unlike traditional juice, encompasses nutrition from the entire apple, including fibre.
The outcome? Upple® is both delightfully refreshing & satisfying…the ideal healthy snack. Our family conceived Upple® recognising that, despite the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, neither Australian adults nor children consume sufficient amounts of fruit or fibre daily. Upple offers a convenient, delicious, and healthy method to increase your daily intake of fruit and fibre. With the nutrition of a whole apple, Upple® can be enjoyed daily!
Here are some of the top reasons why ‘an apple a day can keep the doctor away’ – especially if you include the peel!
Good for Gut Health
Apples contain pectin, a type of soluble fibre that functions like a prebiotic. It aids in enhancing the activity of bacteria in our large intestine. Apples stimulate metabolism within the digestive tract and foster beneficial bacteria in the gut. This prebiotic effect leads to improved health by maximising nutrient absorption and eliminating harmful bacteria and toxins.
Help Manage and Lower the Risk of Diabetes
Regulating blood sugar is crucial for individuals with diabetes. The polyphenols in apples have been directly linked to reducing the body’s uptake of carbohydrates. These polyphenols also decrease glucose absorption in our digestive tract and stimulate insulin release from our pancreas, which is essential for maintaining blood sugar levels.
Additionally, polyphenols activate insulin receptors on cells throughout our body, accelerating the removal of sugar from our bloodstream. This process facilitates its transport to our cells for metabolism, thereby aiding in diabetes management.
Considered Good for Heart Health
Apples can help reduce the risk of heart disease. The antioxidant properties of apples decrease the oxidation of fats, a process known as lipid peroxidation. They also neutralise various fats found in blood vessels that can exert dangerous pressure. The flavonoid quercetin can reduce inflammation in our blood vessels, while the polyphenol epicatechin can lower blood pressure.
The soluble fibre present in apples (pectin) assists in reducing cholesterol levels in the body, serving as a potent defence against cardiovascular diseases. A year-long study involving 160 post-menopausal women demonstrated that consuming apples daily led to a significant decrease in LDL (bad) cholesterol and a slight increase in HDL (good) cholesterol within just three months.
The Healthiest Apple Juice Option
Upple® stands as a beacon for those in pursuit of the healthiest apple juice option.
