Juice vs. whole fruit – which one do you go for regularly? (Swipe to see two more examples) 🍇 🍊 🍎⠀
.⠀⠀
I wanted to clear up some confusion around fruit juice! While indeed the ingredients are better than a sugary soda, your blood sugar still goes for a wild ride when you consume these sugary drinks. Let’s breakdown some of the science below:⠀⠀
.⠀⠀
Fruit juice lacks fiber ▶️ The fiber found in whole fruit helps to slow down the absorption of the sugar in your bloodstream. While whole fruit will lead to a more steady and slow release of sugar, fruit juice will lead to a much larger spike and crash.⠀⠀
.⠀⠀
Fruit juice is easier to over consume ▶️ Due to the lack of fiber, you won’t feel quite as full. While eating something like 5 oranges in one sitting would be very difficult to do, drinking 16oz of OJ (the equivalent in sugar and calories) is very easy to do.⠀⠀
.⠀⠀
Commercial fruit juice is often pasteurized causing it to lose some of the vitamins & minerals present ▶️ Pasteurized juices have been heated to high temperatures for a short time in order to kill any bacteria or other microorganisms that may be present but this in turns also kills some of the beneficial compounds.⠀⠀
.⠀⠀
Bottom line, I prefer whole fruit instead and if I do consume juice, it’s normally vegetable juice (maybe with 1 fruit present) as they’re not nearly as high in sugar. If you do go for fruit juice, freshly made juices definitely have more benefits. Just make sure to watch your portion size.⠀⠀

I hope you found this helpful!⠀⠀
