    I think that apple cider ferments a little longer but I could be wrong. Just a guess!

    Apple cider is the name for a non-alcoholic beverage produced from apples by a process of pressing, especially in the United States and parts of Canada. It is more sour and cloudy than conventional apple juice, retaining the tart flavor of the apple pulp which is lost in conventional fruit juice production.

    In the United States, well over 12,000,000 gallons of apple cider are pressed each year. Cider was traditionally fermented, but that alcoholic apple drink is now referred to in the United States as hard cider. Today in the US (and Canada to some extent), cider is a nonalcoholic beverage; a subcategory of apple juice traditionally made from early-harvest apples which have a lower sugar content and are more acidic, thus cider has a more tart, tangy taste than apple juice. It is generally (though not always) unfiltered, giving it an opaque appearance from suspended solids.

    Most apple cidar has alcohol .But if you get the kind w/out alcohol the only difference is that cider has tiny pieces of apple in it.

    Legally, nothing. Usually the cider is made from the earliest picked apples, and usually it is made unfiltered, but since you can no longer legally sell unpasteurized cider anywhere in the country, it's all juice now. You can call yours either, as you like, but the cider is usually sold lightly pasteurized in those milk jugs and the juice is sold ultra pasteurized and totally flavorless in those PET bottles.
