Study also finds no link between 100 percent juice consumption and weight status in adolescents New research published in the March/April issue of the American Journal of Health Promotion shows that teens drinking 100 percent fruit juice have more nutritious diets overall compared to non-consumers. According to the findings, adolescents ages 12-18 that drank any amount of 100 percent juice had lower intakes of total dietary fat and saturated fat and higher intakes of key nutrients, including Vitamins C and B6, folate, potassium and iron. Those who drank greater than six ounces of 100 percent juice a day also consumed more whole fruit and fewer added fats and sugars. Milk consumption was not affected by juice intake. For more information on the nutritional benefits of 100 percent fruit juice, including video of Dr. Nicklas discussing her latest research, please visit www.fruitjuicefacts****.
