While this juice contains no artificial flavors or preservatives and vitamin C, the second ingredient is high-fructose corn syrup.
The container says this punch has "100% natural flavors," but the nutrition label reveals otherwise. Minute Maid's Watermelon Punch is 5% juice. High-fructose corn syrup is the second-most-used ingredient after water.
While this brand uses all-natural ingredients and no high-fructose corn syrup, the Simply Cranberry Cocktail has 34 grams of sugar, 29 of which is added.
Snapple's regular strawberry kiwi drink comprises kiwi and strawberry juice, but its Zero Sugar Strawberry Kiwi beverage has no fruit juices and is largely water, citric acid, potassium citrate, aspartame, and acacia gum.
This juice has 21 grams of added sugar. Second to tea is high fructose corn syrup. This drink also contains sucralose and acesulfame potassium, or "Ace K."
This bottled juice includes 54 grams of sugar per serving, which is shocking. Calypso's Kiwi Lemonade includes very little fruit, thus all that sugar is added.
In the grocery store juice aisle, there are many options. Not all juices are nutritionally equal. Some contain fruit vitamins, but others are merely sugar water.
Look for pre-made juices prepared with 100% actual fruit juice, not fruit juices mixed with water and sugars.
