How To Pick the Healthiest Juice


Juice can be deceiving — sure, it’s made from nature’s sweet stuff, but it can also be loaded with all sorts of decidedly unnatural ingredients. So, save from juicing your own fruits and veggies, how do you figure out which ones are healthy and which ones are, well, not so healthy? Read on to find out some tips for decoding juice labels!

The Cloudier the Better Can you see through the juice? That likely means it mostly contains water, and packs less of the nutritional punch that cloudier juices do. The cloudier the juice, the more real juice it usually has.

What’s it Called? Steer clear of any bottle labelled, “cocktail,” “beverage,” or “drink.” These types of “juices” usually only contain 10% or less of the actual fruit. Stick with juices labeled, “100% juice.”

Does it Have Added Sugars? Any juices that have added sugars, like high-fructose corn syrup, are not a safe bet.
