    Preservation of apple juice can be by refrigeration, pasteurization, concentration, chemical treatment, or irradiation (Root and Barrett, 2005). Heat pasteurization is the most important method of preserving apple juice which involves heating of the juice which is initially at 22˚C and is heated to 88 ˚C then cooled to 50 ˚C. This is done in order to destroy or kill organisms that could possibly develop. In order to ensure that there are no solids or suspended particles left, a second filtration will be done, ultrafiltration. This involves filters with microscopic pores in order to remove the smallest particles left by the first…
