Is Fruit Juice As Bad As Soda?

Is fruit juice as unhealthy as soda? Well this question is a little tricky because how you define healthy is going to determine the answer. If you try to avoid carbohydrates, the answer is easy: no way, Jose.

The calories in fruit juice, grape for example, are greater than those from a cup of soda. Although the sugars from the soda and the sugars from the grape juice may be derived from different places – they’ll be metabolized and possibly stored as fat the same way in your body.

However, if your dietary goals are obtaining vitamins and minerals from your foods, you may be in luck with some juices. They most certainly contain vitamins and minerals, whereas soda is  a black hole of just carbonation and carbohydrates. The sad fact about most sodas is that their preferred form of sugar is HFCS, high fructose corn syrup. It’s chemically altered and can be toxic to the body.

Settle the score the easy way. Indulge your soda water with the essence of fruit. Get yourself a Soda Stream, count the calories you save, and let the nutrients you gain energize you the right way.
