Canned and bottled fruit juices have been staples on grocery store shelves,, and in many American households for decades. One of the pitfalls however of these products, is a lack of nutriitional value, specifically, including dietary fiber.
Most canned and bottled juice drinks do have 100% daily recommendation of vitamin C. This alone does not provide the same vitamins, and minerals as eating raw fruit. Fruit in the raw yields all the healthy benefits that the Creator intended. Eating 4-5 servings daily of raw fruits,in addition to vegetables provides many health benefits
These include preventing cancer, heart disease, and regulating blood sugar levels. Fruits also provide high amounts of dietary fiber, which helps keep us feeling full longer, lowers blood pressure, decreases cholesterol, and aid in keeping our real age low
.Not everyone however enjoys eating fruit, and neither is each individual on the planet going to try juicing.or fruit smoothies Those who desire a healthy alternative, Bolthouse Farms has introduced a delicious new product. Multi-V Goodness, is a fruit juice smoothie that yields multiple benefits. Each 8 ounces equals 2 servings of fruit, and has 100% daily value of 12 essential vitamins.
There is no added sugar, Bolthouse Farms fruit juice smoothies, only all natural fruit. Total sugar content in Multi-V is 25 grams, compared with 45 grams in an 8 ounce glass of sot drink. Each 8 ounce glass also has 32% daily value of dietary fiber.
Research indicates that cherries, strawberries, and pomegranates, improve blood flow and circulation. A few years ago I was in a local Food Lion, looking at the various Bolthouse Farms juice smoothies. She picked up a bottle of Blue Goodness, (which has blueberries ad black berries)and told me that since her husband began drinking it, he no longer had pain in his legs when walking, .
Multi-V Goodess has 140 calories per 8 ounces,(2 servings). While a juice smoothie is not a substitute for raw fruit, it is a healthier alternative, and a suitle replacement, for bottled and can juices, with added sugar, and no fiber.
