Also, consider Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail. While Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail is lower in sugars and calories compared to other commonly consumed juices, some may perceive it as “unhealthy” due to the added sugar. That perspective, however, fails to take the cranberry’s nutrient density and naturally low sugar content into consideration.
Being so low in naturally occurring sugar also gives cranberries the advantage of being a more versatile fruit. For comparison, cranberries have only 4 grams of sugar per cup. On the other hand, grapes have 23 grams, pomegranates have 24 grams, and apples have 13 grams. Given the unique nature, cranberries can be enjoyed and used in recipes in a variety of ways, allowing the consumer to decide how much sugar they want to add depending on their individualized palate and dietary needs.
