Nutrition: 9 Worst Breakfast Foods On The Planet

9. Orange juice

Whenever people ask me what I think of OJ, they immediately get in Hulk mode and go ‘But it contains vitamin C!’

WHAT LURKS IN ORANGE JUICE?

Sugar – Sure, a glass of orange juice contains some vitamin C. But a 12-ounce serving also contains a whopping 36gof sugar. Is that a lot? Well, this equates 9 teaspoons of sugar in one drink. That’s almost the same as a 12-ounce can of Coke which contains 39g of sugar…
I know that oranges contain naturally occurring sugars. And these sugars are not unhealthy. What makes OJ unhealthy (even the 100% orange juice ones) is the number of fruits that are blended to yield a 12-ounce serving.

Yes, people have been drinking orange juice for ages. But their OJ was nothing like ours.
