Test results for 10 pear juices
Pear juice stands out in terms of taste
In the test, most of the fresh water is cloudy, only one is clear. Most have a strong pear or apple aroma and taste. Two are not convincing in tasting: their fruit note is less strong than the others. Pear juice stands out from the bone: it has an aromatic, complex and intense aroma and taste.

Labeling ruins good grades
Due to poor labelling, some beverages only perform satisfactorily at the declaration control point. The disadvantages of labeling are many. For example, we lost the information on the packaging of two drinks that explained the proven vitamin C content in each case. Apple and pear juice contain a little more vitamin C than the fruit itself. It is often added to them, mostly as an antioxidant ascorbic acid.
Lots of sugar from fruit
In the test, seven out of ten juices are too sweet. At ten percent, the sugar content is as high as apple juice or cola. The sweetness comes only from the fruit, we didn’t find any foreign sugar. In addition, the sugar content speaks against drinking pear juice as a thirst. A homemade spritzer made from one part tap water to three parts water is best. Finished apple spritzers have more sugar.
