    Most juices sold in India contain more sugar than colas – Quartz

    In India and pretty much every where, juices are sold under two categories, fruit juice beverage, and fruit juice.

    It's the beverage that has excess sugar and flavoring to make it taste like juice but essentially adds nothing to our nutrition but sugar.

    The fruit juice variety is slightly better with no added sugar but other additives to keep the juice fresh.

    So next time read what you are picking up, juice beverage or juice.

    Yes you can read labels like " Fruit Beverage, Fruit juice drink" clearly on the carton, unless you are really blind.

    Also the pulp and sugar free ones would be generally expensive by about 40-50 Rs easily.

    In a club or a bar, never order mocktails, you are better off drinking plain soda. They use all these "fruit beverages" for that cranberry vodka you having.

    ^^ not the grapefruit I get here. I like the old type (Kino I think in Hindi). I tried grapefruit here and it was sour as hell.

    There are other fruits you can use, and want kind of juicer are you using? Because citrus fruits have to be squeezed in a very different manner as the seeds are what makes it bitter.

    I know mate. This was freshly squeezed and bottled Bel Monte juice. Anyhow I'm just gonna stick to the regular Kinnows.

    Did they squeeze the juice in front of you? If not, then it isn't fresh. It is a known fact, truly fresh juices should be consumed as soon as they are squeezed, even after half an hour, their taste changes, and it just isn't the same.

    I saw this video recently. I've been purchasing packs of Florida orange, that offer 100% juice only, with either Most Pulp or No Pulp Variety.

    Honestly, they taste really nice, and do not have sugar in them (no after taste), but I'm pretty sure they have flavors added to enhance the taste.

    So I finally decided to let it all go, and got myself a Juicer. The regular rotary kind, citrus juicer. 60Watts, Kenwood, with a 1Liter collection jug.

    It takes about 2-3 minutes to juice 4 Oranges/Kinnows/whatever they are called, but it is as fresh as it gets.

    Like a number of people in this video, I still prefer the Florida Orange flavor over the freshly squeezed ones. But the fact that it is as fresh as it can get, has kept me juicing them oranges.

    Another bearing factor (major) is the cost. A 1.5 Liter carton costs over 500 Rs. A 3 Kg pack of Oranges that will yield me about the same juice, about 200 Rs.

    Do watch.
