Vani aka Food Babe, has provided more eye opening information about food. Majority of juices are made with concentrate and citric acids. If you were like me, I thought concentrate was a strong base of fruit or vegetables then water was added. Citric acid sounds like it come from citrus oranges lines or lemons. This is completely untrue. Food Babe revels that concentrate is nothing but a fancy word for syrup. Boiling fruit and vegetables down to a syrup, adding preservatives, sugar, citric acid aka MSG and other flavor enhancers to make the nutrient depleted juice consumable. Talking with my mom about this, we are preparing to make our own juice that we can freeze. I am lucky to live fairly close to Yakima, where I can get bulk organic fruits and veggies. I will not buy juice anymore, my family especially my son deserves better.
Help take a stand in your home. Don't let this simple life change such as store bought juice poison your body. Fight for your health, because the FDA won't. Please read Vani's full article click here.
Food Babe does give suggestions on alternative brands of juices. You can order them from the manufacturer or see if they are sold in a store near you. Here are all the websites for you to check out.
