In addition to fresh consumption, apples are also processed into several products; juice, apple chips, jam and jelly. Apple juice contains a high level of phenolic compounds with antioxidant activity, such as ﬂavonoids, which may help prevent cardi-ovascular diseases or cancers (Hollman 2001). Therefore, apple juice occupies an important part of our daily diet. However, changes in apple juice color during processing and storage can be a major inconvenience because color defects can impair the sensory properties of the product and lower its nutritional value.
