Many juice cartons in supermarket are chock full of faux fruit juices, one of the most shocking reveals a mixture of beet sugar, corn sugar, monosodium glutamate, ascorbic acid, potassium sulfate, fruit pulp wash, fruit solids, and a byproduct from a water distillation system
But nutritionists are railing against industrial fruit juice for another reason. Packed with sugar, calories and carbs, industrial fruit juice isn't much better for you nutritionally than soda or any other sweetened beverage.
Check one of the most demanded fruit juices and judge by yourselves at what to expect when you do not check carefully all the industrial juice labels.
Berries, and blueberries in particular, have become a super food darling and consequently, commonly faked – there’s a pretty lengthy list of retail food items that contain words or photos suggesting that real blueberries were used in the products, when in fact, they weren’t.
The nonprofit Consumer Wellness Center reported that many "blueberries" in popular products they found were nothing more than glops of sugar, corn syrup, starch, hydrogenated oil, artificial flavors and artificial food dye blue No. 2 and red No. 40.
And these are from popular manufacturers such as Kellogg's, and other super popular brands.
If you see bagels, cereals, breads, muffins, cereal and other items that promise blueberries, closely check the ingredient list for, you got it, actual blueberries. Also to note, artificial food dye blue No. 2 and red No. 40 likely indicate “fake blueberries at work here.”/AgroWeb.org
