Why is Cranberry Juice White?
When cranberries are turned over, they turn white. This is because a red pigment in the berry is drawn to the surface when the berry is exposed to sunlight and cold temperatures. This means that berries that are not exposed to the sun for a long time will turn red during frosty nights.
Antioxidants help prevent or lessen the frequency of active urinary tract infections
Antioxidants in cranberry juice and other cranberry products help prevent or lessen urinary tract infections by inhibiting bacterial adhesion to the urothelium. These effects are not dependent on antibiotic resistance.
In one study, cranberry juice reduced the frequency of UTIs by 20%. This effect was seen in both men and women. The study also showed that cranberry-lingoberry extract reduced the number white blood cells and bacteria in urine among older adults. However, every person reacts differently to antioxidants so cranberries might not be able to treat all cases.
In another study, cranberry juice may decrease the number of UTIs in women with a history of UTI. This study involved 185 women who were given 240 mL of cranberry juice daily for 24 weeks. The placebo was given to the other group. After 24 weeks, the cranberry-drinking group had 39 UTIs, compared to 67 in the placebo group. The difference was significant.
White cranberry juice has several benefits that make it an excellent choice for anyone looking to eat healthy and keep a healthy weight. Its high levels of polyphenols support heart health and lower levels “bad” cholesterol. One study found that women with metabolic syndrome who ate cranberry juice regularly experienced an increase in antioxidant levels. Another study found that cranberry juice reduced stiffness in the carotid femoral artery, which is a measure of arterial stiffness and a sign of coronary artery disease.
White cranberry juice is low in fat and sodium. It is low in calories and can be used as a natural remedy for a cold or as a nutritious snack. This juice is high in vitamin C which helps fight infections as well as reduces the risk of developing heart disease.
It is less tart when it is ripe
White cranberry juice is produced when cranberries are early in the harvesting process, when their juice is still young and less tart than red cranberry juice. Cranberries are naturally tastier when they are unripe, and their floatability makes them more pleasant for drinking. That’s why cranberry producers flood the fields and stir the plants to bring the fruit to the surface.
The powerful antioxidants found in cranberries are remarkable. They are packed with anthocyanins, which have been studied for their potential to fight cancer, stimulate the immune system, and even help with urinary tract infections. Other studies have indicated that the fruit can fight Alzheimer’s disease.
It is appealing to younger consumers
White cranberry juice has a unique taste that appeals to younger consumers. Its tart flavor is less noticeable than its red counterpart, which makes it popular with young families. The juice is also less likely to stain carpets. Bartenders have become fans, using it in drinks such as clear cosmopolitans. This new juice was first offered to the public in 2000 at an Ocean Spray board meeting.
White cranberry juice does not have a purple or red color. The color of the juice comes from the skin of the cranberry, which is what makes it red. While other fruits become sweeter with the depth of their color, cranberries retain their tartness. Carolyn DeMoranville is the director of the University of Massachusetts Cranberry Experimentation Station East Wareham. According to her, white cranberries have milder flavors and less acidity that the red variety.
