Cider has many of the same health benefits as whole apples because of how it’s made.
Washed apples are chopped up into a mash. Then they get squeezed or pressed to get the maximum juice out of the apple pulp.
Most cider is pasteurized just long enough to kill bacteria without affecting its sweet flavor. But keep your cider chilled in the refrigerator like milk, and drink it within a few weeks.
