Health Tip of the day – how to have your juice

Raw fruits, or fresh homemade fruit juices that contain the pulp and fiber of the fruit are far superior nutritionally to commercial juices because the vitamins, minerals and enzymes remain intact, and the fiber/pulp slows insulin response. Processed or concentrated juices are diluted and pasteurized (heated) creating a mostly fructose drink similar to soda in insulin response. Try making your own fruit juices in a juicer or blender to maximize nutrition.
