What’s in my fruit juice?

What to look for

  • Less than 250kJ per 100ml
  • No added sugar
  • At least 40mg vitamin C per 100ml
  • No preservatives (important especially if you have an intolerance)

Some fruit juices are identical to the juice you might freshly squeeze at home, while others are made with reconstituted juice (this must be stated on the label). There isn’t much difference nutritionally, some vitamin C may be lost during this process, but manufacturers add it back before it is bottled. If you’re after 100 per cent juice, it pays to check the fine print on the label. Some juices contain preservatives to prolong their shelf life, flavours (natural or artificial) and acidity regulators to give a consistency to the taste between batches. A juice ‘blend’ is simply a mix of different juices (eg. a breakfast juice).

These have just 5–25 per cent juice, with water as the main ingredient. Usually, they contain added sugar or sweeteners such as stevia (derived from a plant, so it allows brands to claim ‘all-natural’ ingredients) or sucralose, an artificial sweetener.

The recommended serving of juice is only 125ml (½ cup), less than the amount we drink in a tall glass. Drinking more than this can add extra, unwanted kilojoules to your day.

Fruit Juice Trends

RECENT INFORMATIONS

For the past five years, we can see dozens of influencers online who are sweating in the gym to form a so-called perfect body. These influencers and bloggers are spreading the trend of the body cult all around the globe. Everyone wants to reach visible results as fast as possible. This can be done with the help of functional products. A sports drink with branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) or essential amino acids (EAAs) can help an athlete get results much faster or a protein drink can help them grow muscles faster.

It is well known that amino acids are the main ingredient in muscles. They play very specific key roles in health and performance in human physiology and help athletes not only retain muscle but also burn fat. Proteins are made up of both essential and non-essential amino acids that can be used by the body for a plethora of benefits. Some of these key benefits, besides muscle building, include improved mineral absorption and improved focus during exercise. The body must break the protein down into these free-form amino acids in order for them to function. Consuming amino acids in their free form is beneficial since these amino acids can address their function almost immediately.

Branched-chain amino acids include the essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. They are very popular among strength athletes, yet there is strong evidence validating their use for endurance training and racing as well. Numerous research studies have shown these three key amino acids to be extremely important to consume, especially during dieting and exercising. The human body cannot make essential amino acids. As a result, they must come from food. The nine essential amino acids are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Having EAAs in a drink helps an athlete to consume the necessary amount of these essential functional ingredients in order to enable faster muscle formation and to achieve higher endurance.

Juice is a drink made from the extraction or pressing of the natural liquidcontained in fruit and vegetables. It can also refer to liquids that are flavored with concentrate or other biological food sources, such as meat or seafood, such as clam juice. Juice is commonly consumed as a beverage or used as an ingredient or flavoring in foods or other beverages, as for smoothies. Juice emerged as a popular beverage choice after the development of pasteurization methods enabled its preservation without using fermentation (which is used in wineproduction).[1] The largest fruit juice consumers are New Zealand (nearly a cup, or 8 ounces, each day) and Colombia (more than three quarters of a cup each day). Fruit juice consumption on average increases with country income level
