Why should you choose Essentials Fruits & Veggies?
Delicious: Although, I am not a big fan of juices, and prefer fruits for their additional nutrition and fiber, I relished the juice. I was able to make out the individual taste of apple and carrots, and their perfect blend just a treat for my taste buds.
Nutritious: Nutritional deficiencies can lead to a lot of disorders which may range from mild problems to severe life-threatening conditions. A tasty substitute is always welcomed. Tropicana Essentials Fruits & Veggies is loaded with Vitamin A and C. Though, it shouldn’t be taken as a supplement in cases of medical needs for deficient individuals, regularly consuming the juice can help by providing those additional vitamins and keep you healthy and away from suffering the deficiency in the first place.
Nutritional experts recommend 5 serves of fruits and vegetables (app. 400g). However, even if you take the exact amount, only 70% of it is absorbed by the body while 30% is excreted out. The gap developed because of this can be fulfilled with 2 serves of Tropicana Essentials Fruits & veggies helping to maintain your perfect nutrition. Apart from the vitamins the juice also contains sodium and potassium in fair amounts.
No harmful additives: The best thing about this juice is that it is made from 100% juice as per the claims, and contains no added sugar or color. The juice is fat-free, and is quite low on calories. This makes the juice fit even for the kids, providing them an additional source of nutrition.
Good price: The price for the juice pack is surprisingly low for the benefits they offer. The juice comes in two packs—200 ml at INR 30 and 1000ml at INR 149.
So, make time in your busy life for just one thing- pack up a pack of Tropicana Essentials today!
