38. You avoid juice from concentrate

THE RESULT: You miss out on a good form of juice.

THE FIX: Juice made from concentrate is the same as the original juice. The only thing missing is most of the water. Extracting water reduces juice volume and weight, making it easier to ship. When water is added back to the concentrate, the product is labeled “reconstituted” or “made from concentrate” and generally has the same nutrition profile as the original juice. The exception is if sugar is added when the juice is reconstituted. Check the ingredient list to be sure.
