Do you put pure lemon juice on apples to keep fresh?
I have noticed lately that apples aren't going brown when cut and left out are they adding something to apples now to prevent them browning?
Certain varieties of apples have more of a tendency than others to turn brown when cut. Some agriculturists have worked on select breeding for a less-browning characteristic. Also, storage apples will brown quicker than fresh apples. Right now, you should be getting fresh apples in the stores. If you are referring to purchased cut apples, there are preparations - like lemon juice and sulfites - that will reduce browning.

How can you keep fruit from turning brown?
Keep cut fruits, such as apples, pears, bananas and peaches, from turning brown by coating them with an acidic juice such as lemon, orange or pineapple juice. Or use a commercial anti-darkening preparation with fruits, such as Ever-Fresh (TM) or Fruit-Fresh (R), and follow the manufacturer's directions. Cut fruits as close to serving time as possible. If you want to keep apples and bananas from turning brown, coat them in orange or lemon juice. The ascorbic acid (vitamin C) helps prevent oxidization, and they stay fresh looking longer.

How can you prevent apples from turning brown?
I have used the juice from pineapple chunks and the apple slices do not turn brown. Buy fresh apples for starters; second, keep them refrigerated. You are talking about apples that have been peeled or cut. Any cut apple will eventually turn brown on the surface, if exposed to oxygen long enough, but there are a few ways to delay the action. Cooking them will prevent it, for the most part. For fresh apples, squeezing a bit of lemon juice over them and sealing them (with as little air as possible) in a plastic bag helps, also. Another option is to sprinkle them with a powder of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). One brand name of the powdered form of ascorbic acid is Fruit Fresh®. It acts as an anti-oxidant, and is available in many grocery stores. Cooking or freezing apples changes their texture, but keeps them from turning brown. I think the best way to keep them from turning brown, is to eat them before they do. Apple juice can delay the browning effect of cut apples, but is not as effective as citrus fruit juices or Vitamin C.
