When you blend up fruit, the sugars are no longer contained in fibrous plant matter, which means they're more readily absorbable by the body - causing more of an insulin release. Also see the banner link: http://vlskvts.co/x1buvB in regards to fructose.

WAAAAAY too much sugar in those! I'd avoid them. They may have some decent veggie juices if you're there and need to buy something.

My version of paleo does not include fruit juice, except for the occasional squirt of lemon or lime juice for flavor. A quick scan of their nutritional info on their website showed high-sugar content, some use of soy dairy products such as nonfat yogurt and sherbet, none of which are paleo ingredients. IMHO, fresh-picked berries are a much more natural, enjoyable way to consume fruit.

Your allowed to have fruit, but most PHers limit their fruit and especially fructose. I'll be blunt, but it seems like you are just trying to get PHers to support your already made decision on Jamba Juice. Why not buy some fresh fruit, yogurt, etc and make your drinks at home? It's cheaper, less refined and you don't have to worry about mystery ingredients.

You can request no sugar in your smoothie so if you are a juice person, I suppose it could be considered paleo. They also use sweetened yogurt so you'd have to be pretty strict about what you allow them to put in it.

Knowing Retail and the people involved...no...probably way too much HFCS.

But there isn't any added sugar in them, just the fructose (atleast that's what i am told). Is that an issue too? We're allowed to have fruits anyway right?

If I really feel the need for a smoothie I make my own. The ones there usually have frozen yogurt or sherbet. Why buy something that is pretty much pure sugar?
