Most people think of juice as being a healthy alternative to sugary colas. However, if you compare Tropicana orange juice to Coke and Pepsi, the orange juice has more added sugar than the others. Additionally, any juice that is “not from concentrate” is actually stored in aseptic storage tanks to ensure a year-round supply. In order to store the juice like this, it must have all the oxygen removed from it, so that it does not ruin the tanks. When the juice is stripped of oxygen, all of the flavor-providing chemicals are also removed. That means any fruit flavors in those juices in artificial. The best alternative to drinking juice is to simply have a piece for fruit. All the flavor and fiber, none of the added sugar.
