Tropicana 100% Orange juice from PepsiCo India has added orange flavour. In our opinion, it is to mask the effects of processing and to give it a flavour profile close to fresh Orange juice.
It is a sugary beverage as a serving of 240 gm contains 20.7 gm of sugar, which is harmful for diabetics as well as the obese. One single 330 ml serving can deliver 6 teaspoons of sugar, which is more than the recommended daily level even for a healthy person!
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating: 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
The product is reconstituted orange juice, as the ingredient list on it says it contains 19.7% concentrated orange juice.
The product has 20.7 gm of sugar in a 240gm serving, which is very high and unsafe for diabetics, and those with lifestyle diseases. One single 330 ml serving can deliver 6 teaspoons of sugar, which is more than the recommended daily level even for a healthy person!
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 3 -(On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)

Ingredients in Tropicana 100% which are a concern:
This product contains a very large amount of sugar (almost 10 grams per 100 grams). This beverage should be avoided by diabetics and heart patients and must be consumed only in very limited quantities even by healthy people.
