How Much Fruit Is In Your Soft Drink?

When you treat yourself by grabbing a fruity soft drink from the fridge you expect it to contain fruit juice, right? Not just juice, but more than 4 or 5 percent… right?

Thankfully some drinks do exactly what they say on the tin. Appletiser is made from concentrated, carbonated apple juice – and nothing else. Fentimans’ Mandarin & Seville Orange boasts 58% juice and a handful of other, natural ingredients. San Pellegrino’s Orange and Lemon contain 20% and 18% juice, respectively, alongside a few natural flavourings and preservatives.

But some drinks might surprise you.

Make lemonade at home and you’re probably going to use about a cup of lemon juice, diluted with water and sugar. And that’s it.

Why then do some commercial brands contain as little as 2% lemon juice, and a whole host of additives and artificial flavourings like Saccharin, Acesulfame K and Aspartame?

If that doesn’t shock you, how about fruity flavoured drinks that contain precisely NO fruit juice at all? Yep, that’s 0% juice in products that have been engineered to remind you of nature, but have absolutely no relationship to the real thing.
