Although Sunny Delight contains 100% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C, it also contains heavy amounts of sodium, carbohydrates, calories and artificial sweeteners. It is the eqvilulent of soda in terms of soduim, calories and sugar. Orange juice is a much better choice than Sunny Delight.
All types of orange juice are not as good as the real thing. A real orange contains less calories, and more fiber. An average orange has 62 calories and 3 grams of fiber while an average 8 oz glass of orange juice contains 110 calories and less than 1 gram of fiber. Although, a glass of orange juice is better than simply taking a vitamin C supplement. In oranges, vitamin C is part of a matrix involving many beneficial phytochemicals like cyanidin-3-glucoside, flavanones and carotenoids.
Not to mention Sunny Delight isn’t even REAL orange juice, according to the ingredients it contains less than 2% of concentrated juices (including orange, tangerine, apple and lime), it’s mainly sugar water.
A better alternative to Sunny Delight is Simply Orange, it contains orange juice and less than 1% of calcium phosphate and lactate. And an even better alternative to that is squeezing your own orange juice!
I would not call Sunny Delite healthy. It is not juice, it’s mostly sugar. It might have added nutrients, but it would be so much easier to obtain those naturally from orange juice or spinach or other real fruits and veggies. Read the label of Sunny Delite, and determine if it’s made of natural ingredients – I think you’ll find that there are a lot of questionable items in that label. Then read the label for organic orange juice… does it say “100% organic orange juice”? That’s a good way to compare a cheap knockoff food with the real thing.
