According to Dietitians Association of Australia, apple juice, which is often selected as the healthier option over soft or energy drinks, is no more than a "sugar syrup," the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Australasia's leading media company, Fairfax Media, found that a bottle of Coles' Finest-Australian cloudy apple juice- contains more kilojoules and carbohydrates than a bottle of Coca-Cola, based on an average of 100ml.

Apple juice is thought to be one of the sweetest juices, and because it is comparatively cheap, it is used as a base by juice bars.

Nutritionist Rosemary Stanton said that removing fibre from the apple juice makes it little more than sugar syrup.
