Concentrated fruit juice, is a relatively new sweetener, and one that is rapidly gaining popularity among manufacturers. It is highly refined, and at 68% soluble sugar, is relatively concentrated. The percentage of fructose to glucose or sucrose will vary according to the fruit from which it is derived. Through reduction, filtration and evaporation, the color, acidity, and most of the flavor are removed, leaving an end product with little similarity to the original juice. It's preference to white sugar is debatable. Concentrated fruit juice can still cause erratic blood sugar if consumed in large doses. The food industry uses fruit juice concentrates in jams, canned fruits, beverages and some baked goods.
