A glassful of nutrition

Whilst a small glass of 100% orange juice contributes just 3% of the daily calories needed, it is particularly nutrient dense, so there are no ‘empty calories’, because for every gram of sugar provided in orange juice there are over 20 mg of micronutrients. One small glass (150 ml) of 100% orange juice contains more than 50% of the daily requirement of vitamin C, and so much more
