Orange Juice

Isn't it strange that all the natural foods that are good for you and never advertised? It's only the junk that gets on TV

Orange juice isn't a healthy food and its portrayal as one is a sham. The only thing going for it is that it gives 100% of the RDA for vitamin C. But this is at the expense of lots of sugar.

Oranges and other mainstream fruit, such as apples and bananas have been grown and hybridized for size and sweetness.

Orange juice is the most popular fruit juice sold in the World and has been advertised as a core element of a healthy diet. Commercial cartons of orange juice have the fibre from the orange removed, and all that remains is orange-coloured sugary water.

A 250ml small serving of orange juice contains 22 grams of sugar or 5.5 teaspoons. By comparison, a 250ml cola has 27 g of sugar.

Orange juice isn't far away from a cola's terrible sugar content. No sensible parent would give a child a cup of tea with 6 teaspoons of sugar, yet millions of parents pour their children glasses of orange juice thinking that it's good for them.

The serving size from a large carton is typically way over 250ml. And most store-bought bottles are 330ml or even 500ml.

This yields a stack of sugar and a huge spike in blood sugar. Stay away altogether from commercial fruit juices and eat nutrient-dense (whole) fruits such as kiwi, pomegranate, pears, berries, guava, mango, pineapple and melon.
