Fruit is so tasty and has such a nutrition halo that it ends up in a lot of processed foods. But those foods may not contain a lot of fruit.

Typically, fruit juice cocktails have added sweeteners and flavorings. Even though 1/2 cup of the cocktail may have a calorie and sugar count similar to that of 100% juice, it might only contain 20% juice concentrate, which means it only counts as 20% of a fruit serving. The rest is mostly water and extra sugar.
