Fruit Juice Drinks No Healthier Than Coca Cola

Survey finds juice drinks as sugary as coke

A survey of "juice drinks" targeted at children has revealed that some could contain more sugar than Coca-Cola but still be marketed as "healthy".

The website analysed beverages sold in a range of supermarket chains, including Sainsbury's, Tesco and Asda.

The website found the prime offender to be an apple and blackcurrant juice drink from the Sainsbury's Blue Parrot Cafe range for children.

The drink was found to contain 14.4g of sugar per 100ml serving, which compares to the 10.7g per 100ml of Coca-Cola.

Dietician, Jacqueline Hewitt, told the Daily Mail: "By calling itself a juice drink it is suggestive of being the juice from a fruit, leading the parent to believe they are purchasing a healthy alternative to fizzy drinks such as Coke but in fact it only contains 10 per cent juice concentrate."

This was "far too much sugar in one serving", she added.

Children's favourites Ribena and Five Alive were found to contain 12.1g and 11.6g of sugar respectively.

Further information:


We know that we shouldn't drink colas, sodas and other fizzy drinks; that they are not at all healthy. Well, we now know that fruit juices may be even worse.

There is nothing wrong with eating fruit as it comes, straight from the tree, but when it is prepared and sold in cartons and bottles, BEWARE!
