Current Nutrition and Food Science October 2015; 11(4): 267-273.

Key Findings: Overall, fruit juice is nutritionally similar to whole fruit with a “trade-off” for vitamin C for fiber and total sugars and is an easy and important way to help children meet USDA Dietary recommendations.  The study also mentions that 100% juice drinkers significantly consume more whole fruit and have better quality diets than non-juice drinkers.
