Good morning,can I consider these industrial juices( Minute Maid, Tropicana… ) at supermarket shelfs as a fruit portion ? Thanks

All forms—fresh, frozen, canned, dried, and 100% juice—count towards your daily fruits and vegetable recommendation. Choose fruits juices that contain 100% juice. While consuming 100% juice is nutritious for you (and certainly a convenient and tasty part of a healthy diet), it’s also important to consume whole fruits and vegetables (including canned, dried or frozen) to ensure you are getting adequate fiber. (Remember that cooking or drying fruits and veggies doesn’t reduce their fiber content). Enjoy 100% juice products with snacks, with breakfast, in smoothies, or any time of the day!
