Why You Should Think Twice Before Drinking Naked Juice
By TIFFANY NICOLE
Full of refreshing ingredients and good for your gut, Naked Juice is made with no added flavors or preservatives, infused with antioxidants like beta carotene, herbs and vitamins, and live culture probiotics to assist with digestion. But are these tasty juices
as good as they sound?
Healthline states, "Despite having no added sugars, Naked juice beverages are still high in sugar from naturally occurring sources like fruits." Due to its misleading label, PepsiCo, the creator of Naked, was even sued by the Center for Science and Public Interest in 2016.
According to Business Insider, the Pomegranate Blueberry juice from Naked Juice (which is not listed on their website) included 61 grams of sugar. By comparison, a can of Pepsi contains 41 grams of sugar, meaning Naked Juice contains more sugar than a can of soda.
