Simply Grapefruit Juice Review

Simply Grapefruit JuiceThe current advice offered by dietitians is not to drink juice if you are trying to lose weight because you need to cut as much sugar as you can in the diet. However, in an effort to get as many natural vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants in my body, personally I drink natural juices once every few weeks. The means, not juices from concentrate, because by definition, juice concentration has had all the nutrients removed.

Simply Grapefruit is produced by the Simply Orange Juice Company - (which is now owned by Coca Cola). This is one of my favorite line of juices because their products are 100% natural, pure juice - no added sugar, water or preservatives. You don't have to look to see if the "grapefruit" juice is actually more apple and pear (like Minute Maid Enhanced Pomegranate Blueberry Juice which actually has more apple and grape juices).

And of course, Simply Grapefruit is simply delicious (you knew that pun was coming didn't you). This pulp-free version is tart, like grapefruit juice should be. The rich pink and red colors of grapefruit are due to the presence of the anti-oxidant, lycopene (same nutrient found in tomatoes) and helps contribute to the high antioxidant activity of grapefruit juice (one of the highest among juices). Lycopene is also being studied closely because it seems to have a beneficial effect in fighting prostate cancer. More on this can be found at WHFoods.

One 8 ounce serving of Simply Grapefruit is 90 calories, 18 grams of sugar and 90% of the daily value for vitamin C. Florida's Natural Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice is also all natural but has 20 grams of sugar (read our review).

One 59 ounce (1.75 L) bottle retails for $3.89 and it's well worth it. If you choose to buy juices, then give this brand a try in support for being as natural as possible.
