http://cspinet.org/new/201202011.html This is an article about juice makers and how they put tiny amounts of something in a bottle and make health claims. As cranberry growers, I think we would agree that our favorite, healthy berry should be front and center in many, many drinks. MOST people can’t eat/drink cranberries “straight up” so to speak and need a little sweetener. I say, choose your sweetener. We all know that the bottlers use every type of sweetener out there…cane sugar, beet sugar, agave, apple juice, pear juice, Splenda, Truvia….just read the labels, people. It is mostly on the label. The only thing missing is how much cranberry is in the bottle!
The juice company experts have told me that they make juices that people like (they test the heck out of them) AND are affordable. They also tell me that people SAY they want one thing (more nutrition) but make their purchases according to taste and price. I think they are missing a whole bunch of people that want the juice companies to tell them straight up, what is in the bottle, how much of it and spell it out. How about reallygoodjuice branded juice with all the particulars on the bottle? What do you think?
