If you're like me, you love juice. Cranberry juice, apple juice, orange juice; you name it. BUT what a lot of us don't realize is how bad juice can be for you. Most lack fiber and are extremely high in sugar. In fact, fruit juice contains just as much sugar and calories as a sugary soft drink and sometimes even more. For example, a 12 oz glass of Coca-Cola contains 140 calories and 40 grams of sugar (10 teaspoons). 12 oz of apple juice contains 165 calories and 39 grams of sugar (9.8 teaspoons). This is where Purity.Organic comes in. 

Each can provides a daily dose of vitamin C and only contains 20-30 calories (based on flavor) with no fat or sodium. Each flavor is made with only a handful of ingredients, all of which you can pronounce. It is also stamped USDA Organic and contains 15% real juice. Did I mention each can only contains 3-5 grams of sugar? That's 34 grams less than a 12 oz glass of apple juice.

For Purity.Organic, the journey to provide organic goodness began 20 years ago on a friendly organic apple farm. Their founder, Greg, watched how farmers took care of the orchard and he tasted the difference it made in the juicy quality of each bushel of apples. Ever since then, the company has been working with farmers to bring us deliciously pure, certified organic fruits and vegetables.

Purity.Organic's mission is to create more demand for organic produce with no GMO’s. The first Purity.Organic drink was born when they pressed 100% Apple Juice in 2003. Since then, they've continued to bottle certified organic ingredients to offer a variety of juices, teas, coconut water, and superjuices blended from fruits, roots, veggies, and spice.
