Juice is often perceived as healthy.
That’s understandable, given that it is natural and has the word “fruit” in it.
However…what many people fail to realize is that fruit juice is also loaded with sugar.
In fact, fruit juice contains just as much sugar and calories as a sugary soft drink… and sometimes even more.
The small amounts of vitamins and antioxidants in the juice do not make up for the large amount of sugar.
