"An example of an unhelpful fat-free claim is a carton of 100% orange juice. Here, a fat-free claim isnít helpful labeling, even though it is truthful. Oranges are naturally fat-free, so 100% orange juice always has and always will be fat-free, regardless of whether it is highlighted on the label or not. "
Why didn't the article tell us about how much sugar is in juice? Not to mention how much fructose. Things to avoid if you're trying to be fructose free are, honey, fruit juices and dried fruit, all are very high in sugar/fructose, and FRUCTOSE MAKES YOU FAT. Do the research yourselves, people. Eat only whole frutit.....Still waiting for SparkPeople to put the relevant sugar content of every recipe on the 1st page of the recipe's nutritional list.
I'm fructose free and have lost 9.8 kilos by giving it up.
Note, if the sugar grams per 100 gtrams is more than 8 grams, don't buy the product, as that is way too much, especially if you take into account all the other stuff we put into our mouths every day. Aim for no more that 10 grams of sugar a day & you will lose weight, I promise.
