It really is amazing the amount of opinions vs fact is out there. But at the same time, people are so different and solutions so vary per person. ...not so easy...
This information is readily available via a simple Google search.

pH of Applesauce: 3.10-3.60

pH of Apple Juice: 3.35 - 4.00

pH of Apples: 3.34 - 3.90

pH of Grapefruit Juice: 2.90 - 3.25

Re: Pouring Adderall XR pellets out of capsule, putting down mouth with water.

This is a great idea. the one thing that you need to be careful about is to not give orange juice or grapefruit juice with the adderall because citric acid will reduce the effectiveness of the adderall.

I've also read of parents sprinkling the contents of the capsule into applesauce to make it easier for the child to take.

I read on the pharmacy data sheet where with children, parents can pour the pellets out of the capsule and mix with juice if the child does not want to take the capsule. THIS IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH CRUSHING THE PELLETS OR CHEWING ON THEM. IT STATES CLEARLY NOT TO DO THAT! However, I started doing this last week by taking the pellets loose with water, and I notice a far better effect from the medication. I'm not sure why this would make a difference, as the gelatin capsule is supposed to dissolve. However in my experience the difference is quite noticable to the point it is regular practice. I should add that I have a hiatal hernia, and this may play a role. This is not a question, but I wanted to share it with the forum for informational purpose and allow for comment and feedback.
