Drinking apple juice as harmful as Coca-Cola!

Sydney, Aug 26 : Health experts have warned consumers to limit their consumption of apple juice, as it has as much sugar as soft drinks and can increase the risk of weight gain.


According to Dietitians Association of Australia, apple juice, which is often selected as the healthier option over soft or energy drinks, is no more than a "sugar syrup," the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Australasia's leading media company, Fairfax Media, found that a bottle of Coles' Finest-Australian cloudy apple juice- contains more kilojoules and carbohydrates than a bottle of Coca-Cola, based on an average of 100ml.

Apple juice is thought to be one of the sweetest juices, and because it is comparatively cheap, it is used as a base by juice bars.

Nutritionist Rosemary Stanton said that removing fibre from the apple juice makes it little more than sugar syrup.
