Sugar and Sweeteners    Previous - Next

Some beverage sugar comparisons.

A wine is usually considered sweet if it has more than 45 grams of sugar per liter. A “dry” wine has four grams or less. By comparison, a liter of orange juice may have over 100 grams of sugar, apple juice nearly 110 grams, grape juice even more. A liter of Coca-Cola weighs in at 108 grams.

Fruit juice concentrates many individual fruits into a concentrated, sugar-filled cocktail. It should be consumed only in very limited amounts (a four- or six-ounce glass, once a day at breakfast), or not at all. Consider fruit juice “liquid candy.”
