My husband and I don’t drink juice too often, but when we do we usually veer towards juices that are a good balance of sweet and tart. One of our favorite juices is cranberry juice, for not only the rich flavor but also the nutritional benefits such as antioxidants as well.
Did you know that not all cranberry juices are created equally? It’s true – if you purchase and consume cranberry juice, it’s important that you get the best your money can buy through choosing the most nutritional juice option possible.
How do you know which cranberry juices give you that combination of low price and nutritional value? When shopping for cranberry juice you want to ensure you get the highest juice content possible, this means cranberry juice should be listed as the first ingredient on the label. By choosing 100% cranberry juice, you can also avoid excesses ‘added sugar’. Just 8 ounces of 27% cranberry juice provides the same nutritional benefits as eating 1 1/2 cups of whole cranberries and meets the 2010 Dietary Guidelines as a fruit and/or vegetable allowance.
