Can I substitute fruits & vegetables with juices?

Six oz of fruit or vegetable juice is considered one serving - but only if it is 100% juice. While juice can supply many of the vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals found in whole fruits and vegetables, it:

  • Does not supply the fiber or complete nutrient load found in solid fruit.
  • Has the calories that can add up quickly and won't pacify hunger.
  • Needs to be limited to 1 servings a day.

Its important to be sure to choose carefully: a "juice cocktail" or "juice beverage" label means it is not 100% juice.
