Readers commonly write in to say, “Hey, I don’t have time to juice. I was wondering if Naked Juices sold at Whole Foods and other stores are just as good. After all, the package says that the Naked Juice is natural. What are your thoughts and concerns about Naked Juice being natural?”
Most people do not know that Naked Juice is made by PepsiCo. Pepsi is a multi-national corporation that is poisoning the general population with its high fructose corn syrup containing beverages. Pepsi also sells “snack foods” like Lay’s potato chips.
Why would anyone expect a company like Pepsi to have any business ethics when Pepsi spends millions of dollars fighting for its “right” to use genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in its foods?
We now have proof that there is nothing natural about Naked Juice. USA Today reports:
NEW YORK (AP) — PepsiCo Inc. says it will no longer label its Naked juices as being “all natural,” after a lawsuit complained that the drinks contain ingredients that don’t fit that bill.
The company, based in Purchase, N.Y., is also paying $9 million to settle the lawsuit.
In an emailed statement, the company said it uses “an added boost of vitamins” in some of the drinks. But a lawsuit filed against the company noted that the vitamins are actually synthetic ingredients, including a fiber made by Archer Daniels Midland.
PepsiCo did not respond when asked whether those synthetic fibers are in fact included in the juices. The company’s statement said it will drop the use of the word “natural” until there is more regulatory guidance around the world.
There you have it. If you want natural juices, do not drink Naked Juice.
If you want to take charge of your health, get your own juicer.
