SUGAR IN FRUIT JUICE

If you are a diabetic or just someone who watches the sugar content of what you eat or drink, read the nutritional label on all juices.So many juice beverages today are full of extras. Most are no longer 100% juice. While even 100% juice can have a high sugar content, it is the natural sugar of the fruit. Many of the others are often loaded with additional sugar. For example, if the nutrition label on your juice says, sugar, "fructose" or "high fructose corn syrup" you know you are getting added sugar. Be very careful with juices! It is actually better, especially for diabetics, to eat the fruit rather than have the juice.
