In comparison to fresh fruit, how healthy are juices that contain 100% juice?Thank you for your assistance!

All sources of fruit, including fresh, canned, dried, frozen, and 100% juice, will contain many nutritional benefits. The fiber content may be lower in the juice, as you consume more skin and pulp (the fiber-rich parts of the fruit) when you consume the whole fruit. However, 100% juice is a great and convenient way to consume the beneficial vitamins and nutrients in fruits.
