Juices naturally contain around 10% sugars, and the remaining 90% is water, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.1
The exact vitamins, minerals and nutrients in fruit juices vary, depending on the whole fruit from which they’re made; for example, 100% orange juice is a rich source of vitamin C and also contains nutrients including folate and potassium, plus smaller amounts of many others.1
