We’re really excited about this product! A dear friend of The Glucoholic recently asked if we had tried Old Orchard Healthy Balance Apple Juice. We had not, but ran right out to get a bottle to test. This juice is awesome. Let’s say that again. This juice is awesome! We might have a real contender for product of the year with this one. Once in a while we review a product that, from the first taste, you know is going to be a staple. This is one of those products. It really is impossible to tell the difference between this low carb drink and regular apple juices. The juice is mellow, smooth, and very sweet. People who’ve been missing apple juice while following a low carb diet need to run to the store to pick up a bottle as soon as possible.
Each eight ounce serving of Old Orchard Healthy Balance Apple Juice contains only 31 calories, 10mg of sodium, and 6 grams of sugar. The taste alone would be enough to justify drinking this juice, but you’ll also get 62mg of potassium and 100% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C with each serving. We were also glad to see the Splenda logo on the label letting us know we would experience excellent sweetness with no unpleasant aftertaste. Finally, we were really happy to see that Old Orchard has made a significant commitment to JDRF. We think that’s pretty cool.
