Does 'juicing' have significant nutritional value?
Interview: Sara Blackburn, Dietician with IUSM, clinical associate professor of adult nutrition at IUPUI Department of Nutrition & Dietetics.
Juice diets have been popularized over the past several years, but nutrition experts have cautioned dieters from using it as an exclusive method of nutrition because "juicing" tends to deprive fruits and vegetables of their healthy, fibrous pulps and concentrates the sugar that is naturally present to much higher levels. Sara Blackburn, clinical associate professor of adult nutrition in the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, discusses the value of juice diets and the benefit of whole fruits and vegetables.
