My mother is 84 years old and her appetite is’nt very good. I would like her to drink V8 funsion juice, but some are too sour – can I add water and have the juice still be an effective source of nutrients? Serving is 1 cup – I added 1 cup of water.

Adding water to juice will dilute the concentration of nutrients in the juice. If she is drinking the full 2 cups of diluted juice, she will get the amount of nutrients that was in the 1 cup of juice that was diluted with 1 cup of water.
