ABSTRACT
The study material consisted of the following fruit beverages: (1) apple, (2) apple-orange-peach, (3) apple-cherry, and (4) apple-chokeberry, produced by Fructo-Maj in Milejów near Lublin. Contents of phenolic acids, anthocyanins, and ability to neutralize free synthetic ABTS and DPPH radicals were determined just after producing and 3 months of storage. Beverage storage had a negative influence on polyphenols content. A decrease of polyphenolic activities resulting from the storage process was reported. The highest antioxidant properties were recorded for apple-chokeberry beverage, the lowest – for apple-orange-peach juice.
