Two glasses of juice a day can end up into more yearning which can be harmful due to the excessive sugar content. The quantity of sugar content can be up to five teaspoons when the fruit is squeezed properly, as it concentrates the fruits sugariness, claimed one of the study by Bangor University in North Wales.

Dr. Kubi, who headed this research, said, "I'd question the wisdom of including fruit juice in the five-a-day message. The problem is people often substitute them for real fruit which is a mistake.

Dr. Kubi recommended that a glass of juice should be taken by mixing it with one third of water, to avoid excessive intake of sugar.
