Drinking 100% Orange Juice Is Linked To Surprising Health Benefits

Pure orange juice might have some unexpected benefits.

Researchers from Toronto Metropolitan University researched the effects of drinking 100% orange juice compared to a sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB), or “orange drink,” on appetite, food intake and glycemic response in adults.

The study was funded by the Florida Department of Citrus. It was published in the journal Nutrients and also surveyed emotions and sensory characteristics associated with the beverage.

Thirty-six “normal weight” adults were tasked with drinking either 100% orange juice, an orange drink or water before eating.

The researchers found that food and energy intake was lower in subjects who drank 100% orange juice compared to the orange drink.

Caloric compensation from 100% orange juice was 84%, while the orange drink was −25%.
