A serving of juice with no added sugar, according to the Australian Dietary Guidelines, is 125mL.
The Australian Dietary Guidelines state that an occasional 125ml glass of fruit juice with no added sugar is equivalent to one serve of fruit. Without juice, many Australians would not consume their recommended daily intake of fruit.
100% orange juice is a natural product; it is just fruit that has been juiced, with nothing added or taken away. Water makes up about 90% of 100% orange juice with the remainder consisting of natural sugars from the fruit, vitamin C, folate, potassium and other vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients such as hesperidin.
Make sure to choose fresh 100% juice grown in Australia. You can find it in the chilled section of your supermarket or local store.
Meet Our Aussie Growers
Thirteen years ago, the Hoddle family decided to take advantage of their perfect climate and land to grow citrus fruits. They now have 23,000 trees across 40 hectares, supplying the industry with the sweetest, juiciest Salustiana oranges throughout winter and spring.
With three generations of farming history behind him, Robert Hoddle knows a thing or two about sustainability. Robert takes care of the environment by using the latest drip irrigation technology, integrated pest management and recycled citrus peel.
‘Citrus uses water very economically, giving a higher return per megalitre of water. Just by growing citrus, we’re using Australia’s scarce resources well. In addition, our precious underground water is drip fed straight to the tree roots so there is no wastage or ground evaporation. We also use the drip system for fertilising, choosing environmentally friendly carbon fertilisers to enhance the soil,’ said Robert.
‘For pest control, we’ve put a lot of thought and effort into our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program,’ says Robert. ‘Predator wasps control the insects, minimising the need to use pest control sprays. This is obviously healthier for everyone.’ Source: Eastcoast Beverages.
