This is a sponsored post from BlogHer and Tropicana.
I was invited to work with Tropicana and BlogHer on a campaign to highlight the nutritional value of Tropicana’s Pure Premium Orange Juice. I immediately agreed since I am a big advocate of anything related to the promotion of eating and drinking nutritious food to keep your body strong and healthy. Not only am I reviewing this great product but am also offering a $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway for my readers!
We Colombians love fruit juices and, in fact, we start and end almost all of our meals with them. Jugos de fruta, or fruit juices, are very popular in Colombian restaurants and homes. My mom would have a pitcher of some sort of fruit juice made for us every day when I was growing up. If you visit a Colombian home, they will offer you juice instead of soda, as that is part of our culture. I usually don’t substitute store bought fruit juice for real fruit, because many store bought juices contain only a small amount of actual fruit. Unless a juice is freshly squeezed, there may not be much real fruit in the glass. However, in Tropicana’s case, I think they have come up with a winning formula with Pure Premium orange juice. I keep this in our refrigerator for everyone in our house, pack it my kid’s lunch box, and in keep some in the diaper bag to have on hand for snack-time while on the go.
Tropicana’s Pure Premium orange juice is so natural that there are 16 fresh-picked oranges inside each 59-ounce container. So, when you drink a 12 ounce glass of orange juice, that’s like eating 2 fruit servings! Tropicana Pure Premium sounds like a smart choice to me. Doesn’t that make you want to pour yourself a glass right now?
Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice and Boston Consulting Group provided some really interesting misconceptions people have about juice in several areas:
•Sugar: People mistakenly think 100 percent juice has added sugar, Tropicana Pure Premium has no added sugars or artificial sweeteners. – Less than half of survey respondents were aware that 100 percent juice has no added sugars
(JPA survey) – 54 percent of people think orange juice has added sugar (Boston Consulting Group)
•Nutrients: People don’t realize that 100 percent orange juice – including Tropicana Pure Premium – is one of the most nutrient-rich commonly consumed 100% fruit juices. – 56 percent think other juices are better than OJ. (Boston Consulting Group)
•Fruit Servings: Many people don’t realize that one 8 ounce glass of Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice counts as two fruit servings. – Less than half of respondents were aware that 100 percent juice can count as a serving from the fruit group (JPA survey) – 35 percent don’t think orange juice is a good way to get fruit servings (Boston Consulting Group)
Tropicana strongly supports whole fruit consumption, but data shows that seven out of 10 Americans don’t get enough fruit in their daily diets. Below are key nutrition messages about Tropicana Pure Premium.
•With important nutrients including vitamin C, folate, potassium and thiamin, there’s no room for added sugar, artificial flavors, sweeteners or water.
•At about 50 cents per 8-ounce glass – which equals two fruit servings – Tropicana Pure Premium provides a high-quality, nutrient-rich value for families.
• One eight-ounce glass of orange juice provides: a full day’s supply of vitamin C, which can help support a healthy immune system; as much potassium as a medium banana, which plays an important role in heart health; and a natural source of the B vitamin folate, which helps the body make new cells and DNA and may reduce the risk of birth defects of the brain and spinal cord.
Tropicana helps put the “good” in morning!
