Don't drink more that 150ml fruit juice a day, warns The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology journal

by , 22 May 2014

You might have cut down on drinking fizzy drinks so you can improve your health, stabilise your blood sugar and prevent type 2 diabetes. But are you still drinking fruit juice to quench your thirst?

If so, listen up!

Many popular fruit juices have as much sugar, if not more, than fizzy drinks!

A recent study published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology journal, done by researchers at the University of Glasgow, concluded that it's safe to drink 150ml fruit juice a day. Which, if you think about it, isn't that much at all!

Now, you may ask why fruit juice isn't healthy and there's a simple answer: When extracting the juice from the fruit, you're only taking the nutrients and sugar content. The fibre that lowers your blood sugar and is the healthy portion of the fruit isn't in the drink. And this means you're getting 26g of sugar from apple juice compared to 26.5g from your average fizzy drink.

Read on to discover healthy drink alternatives that won't send your blood sugar soaring.
