Sugar in Juice: How Much is Too Much?

Stack of sugar cubes

One of the most common questions we get about our juices is, “Why is the sugar content so high?” With all the concerns around excess sugar in our diets being brought to light, this is a valid concern surrounding cold-pressed juices. It’s very important to make the distinction between added/refined sugars and sugars that are naturally occurring in fruit and vegetables. 

Refined Sugar vs. Natural Sugar

It's a common misunderstanding that because refined sugars are unhealthy, the same must apply to the naturally occurring sugar (fructose) found in fruits and vegetables. This is untrue! 

Raw fruits and vegetables or juices and smoothies made from them are packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, enzymes, and other organic compounds that will help contribute to a healthy weight and body. Fruits and vegetables are packaged perfectly by Mother Nature to give your body everything it needs for optimum health.

Our Juices & Smoothies

We do not believe in anything artificial.  Our juices are made with raw fruit and vegetable juices, nuts, seeds, and spices. Because we do not pasteurize or HPP our juices, all of the vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients are available for your body to easily absorb and utilize.

Our juices and smoothies have NO added or refined sweeteners. 

If you are a person who likes juices that are mildly sweet, or generally just prefer to keep your overall sugar intake low, we now offer our Lower Sugar* Cleanse.  Everything you love about our juices and smoothies but with less sugar and more protein than any other cleanse we offer.
