- Canned water-packed, tart cherries: 1,700 ORAC units
- Frozen tart cherries: 2,033 ORAC units
- Dried tart cherries: 6,800 ORAC units

#4: How to Buy Pure Cherry Juice
Here are some things to look for when buying natural 100 percent tart cherry juice.
- Look for unsweetened tart cherry juice
Some brands mix tart cherry juice with other juices or add additional ingredients. Not only does this give the final fruit juice a mixed flavor profile, but more often than not is it raises the amount of sugar, too.
While all fruit has natural sugar, called fructose, 1-ounce of Fruit Advantage unsweetened 100 percent tart cherry juice has only 15 grams of sugar per serving. It is a great way to limit your sugar intake while enjoying a healthy lifestyle.
- Look for a sediment-free guarantee
We offer the cherry industries only sediment-free cherry juice. This means you won’t have any buildup of thick residue on the bottom of the bottle. With Fruit Advantage 100% pure tart cherry juice, you are drinking pure cherry juice and cherry sedimentation.
Sedimentation may occur for a number of different reasons including:
- Using older or out-dated cherry juice concentrate
- A poor bottling process to produce the final product
- Using poor or inadequate packing material when shipping the product
- Not properly bottling the product into the bottle itself
- Inadequate storage of the final product after production, but before it is shipped to the customer.
- Glass bottle tart cherry juice
When drinking 100 percent tart cherry juice, buy cherry juice in glass bottles. The reason glass bottles are important is due to something called “plastic leaching”. Plastic leaching is well-known in the food industry. Leaching occurs when food is packed in plastic bottles. Over time, the food actually begins to “pull” or “leach” the plastic molecules from the plastic bottle directly into the food.
When buying 100% tart cherry juice look for glass bottle tart cherry juice and you won’t have to worry about drinking plastic molecules. This is the best way to drink all-natural cherry juice.
One additional benefit of glass bottle cherry juice is the glassed used to bottle the pure cherry juice is Non-Toxic and BPA, BPS and DEHP Free.
