Eat your fruit, don't drink it!

With juice shops popping up around Melbourne boasting the benefits of freshly squeezed fruit juices, it's enough to draw you in! But did you know that the nutritional benefits are not the same?

Whole fruit contains fibre from the flesh and skin, which is removed during juicing. Fibre is important for gut health and is responsible for helping keep you full. The lack of fibre from drinking a glass of orange juice is the reason you're not feeling full, compared to eating a whole orange. One glass of orange juice contains 6-8 oranges; would you actually eat that many oranges in one go?

We need two serves of fruit daily, and although fruit juice can have its place, whole fruit is a smarter option if you're watching your energy intake
