    Should I Still Drink Fruit Juice?

    fresh juiceFruit juices are presenting a number of health problems owing to the high amounts of sugar. The lack of fiber is identified as the biggest problem. Juicing will remove the insoluble fiber and will release the sugars in the fruit.

    The insoluble fiber in fruits helps to slow down the absorption of fructose, the most common sugar in fruits. Health experts say that fruit juices are worse than fizzy drinks and can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes.

    Blending rather than juicing is recommended since it preserves both the skin and pulp of the fruit. Fats from nuts such as walnuts can be added to slow down the absorption of sugar.
