Preparing vs Purchasing Low Sodium Juices
In case you are not up to preparing your own home made juices, there is an alternative – the V8 low sodium vegetable juice. Apart from the “normal” V8 juices, a few years ago a low sodium variation of V8 vegetable juice was introduced. It is a healthy, refreshing combination of the following eight vegetables: carrots, tomatoes, beets, parsley, spinach, celery, lettuce, and watercress. This juice contains very useful ingredients, while at the same time keeping the sodium content at 140 mg per 8 oz. serving. You can drink this 8 ounce cup of V8 which tastes great and still not feel stuffed.
Your best shot should be preparing low sodium juices by yourself. You can use a good juice maker, and then, drink the juices immediately after they have been prepared. Such juices, as they are not pasteurized, contain all the beneficial natural nutrients, enzymes and Vitamins. If you want to purchase low sodium juices, then you will have to settle for some fully or partly pasteurized juices, such as V8. Whenever you can, though, go for the natural home made juices.
Low sodium juices are highly recommended over the regular juices. Also if you go for the V8 vegetable juices, choose the low sodium version. Please note that the low sodium V8 vegetable juice, although quite delicious, actually tastes somewhat differently than the ordinary V8 juices. Cheers.
