It’s easy, and it’s a healthier way to bake. Apple sauce adds nutrition and reduces the fat in your favorite recipes for muffins, cakes, brownies or quick breads. Replacing oil, butter and shortening with apple sauce will produce a moist, light cake that is lower in fat and calories and higher in Vitamin C and fiber. Baking experts recommend replacing no more than ¾ of the fat so if a recipe calls for 1 cup oil, substitute with ¾ cup applesauce + ¼ cup of oil. For best results:

CRV (California Redemption Value) applies to aluminum, plastic, glass or metal beverage containers marked with the “CRV” designation or that are considered a single serve container. Our 100 % fruit juice containers in 46 oz. and larger do not qualify for the CRV but are still recyclable.

Yes, Tree Top pasteurizes its apple juice and apple sauce products for the safety of our consumers.
“From Concentrate” means the removal of much of the water from the juice, resulting in a thick syrup.
To make “Never from Concentrate” apple juice, the apple is pressed to extract the juice from the fruit. This pressed juice is then pasteurized for safety, packaged and sent to the stores for purchase.
The only difference between these two 100% juices is the acidity content. The apple cider has a tarter flavor than the apple juice. In other words, we use a tarter blend of apples to make our cider than we do for our juice.
