No, not sugar in fresh fruit , processed fruit, vegetables, cereal grains, nuts and seeds.

>The sugars naturally present in milk and dairy products, fresh and most types of processed fruit and vegetables and in cereal grains, nuts and seeds are excluded from the definition.

So if I juice fresh fruit is that the same as fruit juice?


jagoble t1_j8nccu7 wrote

Sounds like it. I think the difference is when the fruit is whole, it's bound up in fiber, takes more time to digest, and thus doesn't spike blood sugar as much.


katarh t1_j8nif4o wrote

It's that. Sugar in whole fruit that still has its fiber isn't as bad.

Eat an orange, don't drink orange juice.

Eat grapes, don't drink grape juice.

Eat apples, don't drink apple juice.

Glycemic index of an orange is 40. Glycemic index of orange juice is 66-70. Orange juice will spike your sugar.

I think it also depends on the method of juicing. If you include the pulp (by juicing the whole fruit) you still get the Fibre from the fruit. If you just squeeze the juice out its just sugar water.

It's considered free sugar from the first sentence. It is confusing since orange juice is a juice and also "processed fruit". But in a juice, the sugars are separated from the fibers.

It’s free sugar since it lacks the fiber needed to slow the sugar absorption and avoid a big blood sugar rise.

Interesting. I wonder how consuming something like OJ with a food that's high in fiber would change this, if at all?


Ixneigh t1_j8ngs9q wrote

Doubtful. People don’t chew the food that well for that to be a factor. Plus you can drink 10 oranges of straight juice. You’d never eat that many.
