Berri have introduced a new ‘on the go’ juice, Be by Berri, that has 50% less sugar than standard juices in two yummy flavours; Apple & Pomegranate and Pineapple & Mango.
The Apple and Pomegranate drink was our favourite of the two flavours. Sweet, light and refreshing, it was a treat reminiscent of apple and blackcurrant juice that we used to love as kids, it’s the perfect treat to serve chilled on a hot, summery day.
The Pineapple and Mango drink is significantly less sweet than the Apple flavour. If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, this tropical drink is a great alternative. It also has a thicker formula, much like mango nectar, making it a quick yummy treat.
However, in a bid to lower the sugar levels of the juices, the drinks have been left with a strange aftertaste that does disappear quickly.
Our recommendation is to enjoy these drinks in moderation, it’s best to always have a piece of fruit instead of a juice, and our daily intake of fructose doesn’t need more encouragement. For example, the Apple & Pomengranate has 17.5gm of sugar in one 350ml bottle and the Pineapple & Mango is a bit less at 15.8gm. Ideally we should be keeping our sugar intake to 15gm or less per day.
Available in two sizes; 350ml and 1.5 litres in leading supermarkets across Australia. For more, you can visit their website.
