An article in Eat This, Not That! magazine highlights a recent study which shows that the nutrients in orange juice may help your body better than fruit.

The study, conducted by German researchers and published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, found that “while pasteurized juice had slightly lower levels of vitamin C and carotenoids, the remaining vitamins were much more bioavailable – meaning our bodies could absorb and use them more effectively,” the magazine reported.

According to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines. 100% Florida Orange Juice counts as a fruit choice to help complement whole fruit intake and meet fruit intake recommendations. An 8-ounce glass of 100% Florida Orange Juice provides vitamin C, potassium, folate and has no added sugar.
