Fruit juice facts
FRUIT JUICE... what we often don't realise is that the majority of shop bought fruit juices are made from concentrate. These are often filled with chemicals and a lot of sugar, there is very little nutritional benefit in these drinks. For example to make apple juice the general process is as follows. They start by pressing the apple and removing all of the fibre, it's then heated up through pasteurisation at a high temperature, dried and turned into a concentrate. Then the sugar, food coloring and flavorings are added. If you are going to drink ready made fruit juice then read the label first and check that it is fresh and not made from concentrate and that there isn't any added sugar. Coconut water, or herbal teas are a good alternatives that are just as refreshing.
