Juice of any kind is off limits for diabetics, as it has as much sugar as soda-pop. And some, such as cranberry juice have to be sweetened even more to overcome the natural bitterness of the berry.

I let DW, and adult kids know how I feel about juice being given to small children long ago. Bing Crosby was wrong. Orange juice is not a healthy breakfast drink. Sorry Bing, but I had to say it.

Same with me!

I need to add a tablespoon of prepared horseradish and a splash of Worcestershire sauce.

It is also good to take the edge off of hunger and only 45-50 calories a cup.

It's like coffee. there are some indicatons that it protects against Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes and liver cancer and has useful anti-oxidants but other indications suggest it can lead to elevated levels of cholesterol. You pays your money and you takes your chances.

With juice and coffee and anything else it's all about moderation. I like my coffee black and very strong and very sweet so I don't drink it every day and when I do I only have one cup. Anymore and the sight of an old biddy swinging from the light fittings is inclined to frighten the milkman first thing in the morning!

...and a healthy glug or two of vodka.

I bought myself a Bullet for Xmas and I have been drinking juice that I make myself pretty frequently. Including savory juices.

I love it!

If the tomato juice is too thick the vodka does help to thin it.

I like to cut my cranapple juice with with vodka and Cointreau

Seriously, though, I don't know why people think advertisers are a good source of nutrition information. Their job is to sell a product and in the food industry, they either follow trends (gluten-free everything) or try to create them. Get your nutrition information first from a reliable source and then choose your food based on that.

Remember those little glasses they used to use to serve oj or tomato juice in restos? They looked like they held 4 or 5 oz of juice. That's probably a reasonable serving, on occasion.

I don't usually drink juice. I used to drink a lot of it, but as others have mentioned, you lose the fibre and probably some other nutrients. You also tend to drink the equivalent of a lot of fruit in one glass. I also think we are better off eating the fruit or vegi. I think tomato juice is made from whole tomatoes and nothing is strained out. That would be a decent juice, imho.

Himself's endocrinologist told him no juice under any circumstance. Meanwhile, my idea of "juice" is to draw a glass of water from the fridge dispenser (the water is filtered) and squeeze a large wedge of lime into it, dropping the wedge in when I'm done (yes, I wash my produce). Sometimes I'll do that with a chunk of orange or, rarely, lemon. During the summer I can go through a lime a day easily - bonus, no discernible calories!
