Most apple ciders are pasteurized but not filtered, so some sediment is still present.

What is the difference between apple juice and apple cider?
Apple cider is the name used in the United States and Canada for an unfiltered, unsweetened, non-alcoholic beverage made from apples. Apple juice, on the other hand, has been filtered to remove solid particles but can be sweetened before it is packaged for sale.
Cider contains more of apples’ polyphenol compounds than clear commercial apple juice. Fresh cider from cider apples may contain from two to four times the amount of these healthful compounds compared to clear commercial apple juice because of the apple varieties used and the extra processing to make clear juice.American Institute for Cancer Research
