About 70% US Apple Juice Comes From China


Learn why most apple juice that comes from China is flooding the market nowadays. Check out the article we found over at Living Traditionally.

Do you  know where your apple juice comes from? It comes from China. Two decades ago the United States had a healthy apple juice industry, but due to increases Chinese apple production over the past two decades, their apple juice concentrate has flooded the US market.

According to F&WW, more than 70 percent of the apple juice consumed in the United States now comes from the People’s Republic of China, where the government has acknowledged a problem enforcing a new food safety law. After testing dozens of samples from three different cities in America, Dr. Oz discovered that some of the nation’s best known brands of apple juice contain arsenic. I  But the FDA still says apple juice is safe to drink.

The arsenic levels produced by the F&WW-Empire State-Paradigm tests exceeded those found in apple juice by the St. Petersburg Times in March 2010.   The Florida newspaper reported levels of 35 parts per billion.
Mott’s, an American company with a history dating back to the 1840s, has not commented on the high arsenic levels found in its apple juice. FDA, which has previously expressed concerned about arsenic levels above 23 parts per billion, also has yet to comment on the uptick that may be occurring from Chinese apple juice.

    I buy organic apples and juice. I always check to see where the source of apples or any fruit type juice is from. I also check where my dog snacks are made.
