If you think that you are getting equal potion of nutrition from a packaged fruit juice as from a fruit, and lesser sugar than the aerated drinks, then you need to think again, as these facts would leave you shocked. In a recent study, it was found that packaged fruit juices have the equal amount of sugar as in the aerated soft drinks.
Researchers from the University of Glasgow's Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences observed in a high-end study, that high intake of fruit juices can now lead to an increased risk of diabetes, as they have hight content of sugars in them. These researchers compared 250ml of a packaged fruit drink with a  fizzy drink, and they observed that  one serving of grape juice contained 110kcal and 26g of sugar, which is equal to one serving of cola. This means that a person is taking around five tablespoons of sugar in just 250 ml of fluid. This is suitable for those who need instant energy, but is not advised for kids and for those who are fighting with obesity. This amount of sugar could lead to liver damage with damage of eyes and kidneys.

Diabetologists advice to always go for a fresh fruit instead of selecting a packet of fruit juice for nutrition, as they are a gret risk to your organs and health.
