The Dangers of Fruit Juice

I see that Nanny's chums from an anti sugar lobby group Action on Sugar (akin to the anti salt lobby group CASH) have got their knickers in a twist over the amount of sugar in fruit juice.

Maybe CASH and AoS could combine and, akin to the laws of physics wrt matter/anti matter, cancel each other out?

Just out of curiosity I am still bemused that some people become so fixated on a single issue (eg salt, sugar) that they set up charities and lobby groups that solely focus on that one single issue, and do their utmost to prevent others from consuming that product.


Why are these people so obsessed, and so determined to stop others living their lives as they wish to?

Nothing to do with the money that these groups rake in from sponsors and governments surely?

Anyhoo according to research carried out by the Telegraph some fruit juices and smoothies contain four times the amount of sugar the World Health Organisation recommends an average person should consume in a day.

A survey of 50 products from supermarkets, coffee shops and food outlets found that more than half contained at least six teaspoons of sugar, which is the recommended daily limit.

This is all very well and "horrifying" but, if you observe the table below that lists the 50 products, many are huge portions. In other words of course they contain large amounts of sugar, because the portion sizes themselves are stonking!

Maybe a simple solution would be to consume less fruit juice and smoothies...oh, wait a minute, wasn't Nanny the other day telling us to up our 5 a day to 7 a day?

I have of course a simple solution for those of you who wish to drink gallons of sugary fruit juices, simply add salt.

Problem solved!

    Yet there's no "proper" nanny law about salt & sugar. Those pair are the two easiest ingredients to add to any meal still Nanny doesn't ban them because shit food is inedible without them.
