Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, June 2015; 56(5): 871-884.
Key Findings: An independent, in-depth critical systematic review conducted by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics looking at research from 1995-2013 found drinking 100% juice is not associated with increased weight or adiposity in children. As part of a healthy diet, this evidence shows that consumption of 100% fruit juice can provide beneficial nutrients without contributing to pediatric obesity.
