The research which was recently published in the Journal of Nutritional Science found that having 100% juice is not associated with an increase in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and supports a growing body of evidence that it has no significant effect on glycemic control.
A comprehensive data analysis by researchers at Center for Chemical Regulation and Food Safety in the US quantitatively assessed the relationship between drinking 100% juice and blood glucose control.
The study used fasting blood glucose and fasting blood insulin levels as biomarkers for diabetes risk, systematic review and meta-analysis included 18 randomised controlled trials (RCT) to evaluate the impact of 100% juice from fruits, such as apple, berry, citrus, grape, and pomegranate.
