Nutritional Analysis Of Vegetable Juice

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hello PH, i was wondering if there is any nutritional data out there of fresh made vegetable juice? After 2 days of searching the internet i could not find anything of value. It seems like everyone is just saying it??s full of nutrients but no one says how much. I??m asking because my stomach seems to be rather small and i??m looking for a way to get nutrients without feeling full or eating above my hunger feel.


I did find some more nutritional data on vegetable juice and i compared 100g of a vegetable to the same amount of juice. My findings are that vitamins and fiber are decreasing and the minerals stayed the same except sodium and chloride (=salt). These minerals increasing 5-10 times in juice. So when you drink 100g of juice instead of eating 100g of the same vegetable you get less vitamins and more salt. Now juicing seems to me a good way to get a shot of minerals into my bloodstream but less vitamins that i would have if i eat the whole vegetable.

I found information on what nutrients the juice of various veg contain, but not the amount. Don't know what to tell you. Just eat smaller meals, more frequently. I don't advise drinking your calories, but to each his own.

But unlike a smoothie you can not calculate it 1:1. There are lots of people who claim that juice is healthy and nutritious (Ornish, Fuhrman, Walker,...) but i can´t find any data on how nutritious juice really is. The USDA seems to only have tested tomato, carrot and processed juices. There is no analyses of spinach, kale, cabbage, celery or other vegetable juices but everyone on the juicer side is claiming how nutritious it is. Where can i find analysis of other juices than carrots and tomatoes? Someone must have done this.

exactly right. You cannot get a good measure without having a specific formula.

The nutritional value is going to depend upon what you put in it. If you add one tomato, one carrot, one onion, etc., the juice is going to contain the nutrients from those fruits and veg.

Have you looked at the label on, say, a bottle of low sodium V8? Delicious!

Seriously? We've gone a little off the deep end. 3x a day sit down with someone you like, have a conversation. Tuck into a big spread of meat, eggs, fish, veggies and fruit. When you are full go on a 15 minute walk. That's it.

Liquid food isn't food, it isn't anything you were "designed" (for a lack of a better term) to need. It's goofy.
