You’ve most likely been at the receiving end of this piece of nutritional wisdom: eat whole fruits instead of fruit juice. You’d have been told that whole fruit has higher fiber content, a better nutritional profile and is therefore more beneficial to your health.
While the habit of eating whole fruits is an excellent one, fruit juice also comes with a world of health benefits. Provided, of course, that it’s natural and authentic, with no added sugar or concentrates. That’s why, always make it a point to opt for 100% organic juices. At Originz, we have a wholesome range, specially crafted for children.
Also, given our busy lifestyles, a lot of us may find it inconvenient to eat whole fruits regularly. After all, it involves washing, peeling, slicing… all very time-consuming. It’s far easier to grab a juice and have it on the go. Children, too, are finicky when it comes to eating whole fruits as the taste and texture of a given fruit may not be to their liking. For them, juices are a fun alternative.
But first, it’s important to put your mind at ease.
Here’s debunking a few myths surrounding fruit juice:
1. Contrary to popular belief that it is devoid of calories, fresh fruit juice is actually nutrient-dense. In fact, 100% juice is nutritionally no different than the whole fruit from which it is derived. Additionally, 100% juices are known to contain bioactives (carotenoids, flavonoids, etc.), which have potential health benefits.
2. Research indicates that combination of whole fruit and juice has a better nutritional profile (including vitamin C, potassium and calcium) than just fruit alone.
3. Again, contrary to what you may have been told about fruit juice being harmful to your health, research indicates that drinking juice does not lead to adverse health effects including weight gain, diabetes, blood pressure or cardiovascular diseases.
4. And finally, there’s no scientific evidence to indicate that drinking juice causes dental caries in children.
So, pick your juices with care and stay on the right side of the health curve!
