Full Answer

One cup of unsweetened apple juice contains 114 calories with 24 grams of sugars. Nutritionally, one serving of apple juice includes 4 percent of a person's daily supply of vitamin C, 2 percent of calcium and 2 percent of iron.

Apple juice is made by mashing apples in a press, filtering the particulate matter out and then pasteurizing the juice. Sometimes, sugar and vitamin C are added. Apple juice lasts longer on the shelf than apple cider. Apple juice does not need to be refrigerated due to the pasteurization process.
