Juice & Lead
Children are not being over-exposed to lead in juice. In fact, juice is a food that the EPA recommends as part of a healthy diet to fight lead poisoning.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, lead can be found in all parts of our environment – the air, the soil, the water, and even inside our homes. Therefore, many products that come from nature may contain trace amounts of lead. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) monitors levels of lead in food and drinks and has set an upper limit for lead in fruit juices at 50 parts per billion (ppb).
