1 pound apple sauce = 2 cups

Canned Unsweetened Applesauce can be processed with added organic acids (such as erythorbic) to prevent oxidation (browning) if the packer so desires - the label will state if it has been added.

Unsweetened applesauce is packed in a No. 300 can, which is about two cups, or four ½-cup servings.


    • Store unopened cans in a cool, dry place off the floor.

    • Store opened applesauce in a covered container and refrigerate. Use within 5-7 days.

Uses and Tips

    • Unsweetened applesauce can be served at room temperature, or chilled, as a simple lowfat dessert, or used as an ingredient in recipes. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon, if desired.

    • Applesauce is a great fat substitute for lowfat baking. Simply substitute half of the fat in a recipe with an equal measure of applesauce.

    • Applesauce makes a wonderful addition to raspberry gelatin for a nutritious dessert.
