  Frequently Asked Questions

What is the shelf life of your products?

Any Martinelli’s products that are unopened and stored in a cool, dry place should retain their quality for 3 years (in glass) and 2 years (in plastic) from the date of production. Any products that are opened must be refrigerated and are good for 5–10 days. In 2004, we began printing a “Best by” date on all products.

What is the difference between Apple Juice and Cider?

Martinelli’s apple juice and cider are the same; the only difference is the label. Both are 100% pure juice from U.S. grown fresh apples. We continue to offer the cider label since some consumers simply prefer the traditional name for apple juice.

Do Martinelli's bottles contain BPA?

None of our plastic bottles contain bisphenol-A (BPA) or phthalate plasticizers. Some of our metal caps, which are not in constant contact with our juice, do have an epoxy coating that contains trace amounts of BPA. All Martinelli packages are in compliance with US food Packaging Regulations. We expect to complete our transition from packaging which use coatings that may contain BPA by mid-2017.

The new amendment to California's Proposition 65 regarding BPA only applies to products sold for consumption in California. This regulation does not affect products sold in other parts of the USA or internationally.
For more information on California's Proposition 65 please visit:

The Grocery Manufacturing Association has developed a list of products which have BPA in the packaging. The impacted Martinelli products are included on this list and it can be viewed by visiting:
