Drinking 100% fruit juice is as good as eating fruit, except for the benefit of fiber.



Agreed. Drinking fruit juice is equivalent to drinking soda. Eat whole fruit and drink water.

The benefit of fiber is 75% of the importance. Fruit juice can spike blood sugar and contribute to diabetes. Drinking fruit juice (100% or not) is similar to drinking a sugar sweetened beverage.
