One 8 ounce glass of Orange Juice = 24 grams of sugar... Which= 6 TEASPOONS of sugar.
1. think about it...you wouldn't eat 4 oranges for breakfast, so why would you drink the equivilant sugar. (8oz isn't the size we usually get though is it...16oz juice =12 TEASPOONS of sugar.
2. YES, unmoderated consumption of juices are unhealthy in that you are drinking conscentrated empty calories in sugar. So know what is on your food so you can moderate your sugar intake.
3. that being said, Natural sugars from fruit will always be healthier than added, processed, refined sugars in our mass produced foods. BUT DONT DRINK THEM, EAT THEM, because when you drink a glass of juice YOU ARE NOT MODERATING your intake. When fructose is eaten through a whole orange it causes less of a problem as the fiber helps to slow down the absorption and prevents over consumption.
4. Is orange juice even fresh, real tasting orange juice? No!. Its probably at least a year old, and through its processing, stripped of ALL its flavor and then chemically re- flavored to produce a consistent trademarked' taste...think Tropicana vs Minute Maid flavors.
Know what is going into your body!! Dont blindly consume empty sugar calories...because that's what's made you fat.
