I know that there is nutritional value from calories in foods, but do the calories from drinks like milk and orange juice have any nutritional value? How does this value compare to that of foods?

Orange juice is packed with vitamins.

and a ****load of sugar. I'd take the orange over the juice anyday. In fact I don't even drink juice anymore...... it's right up there on my ****list along with soda.

How about natural orange juice? I thought its sugar is fruit sugar, which is better than added sugar.

I dunno.. I think they still add some sugar when it's processed.. but I could be wrong. The digestion of juice and fruit itself is different though... I'd take the fruit.

Personally I would would take juice over pop. Atleast it has some vitamins. I am not afraid of a little juice.

I don't think they add sugar to the 100% natual kind but I do know that juicing would remove things like fiber. Basically just a more concentrated source of calories.

True, but add a dash of sarcasm to your choice of words and it becomes a more amusing statement.

yes.

drank kcal are often more easily digested than solid kcal so will be higher GI, increase insulin levels more quickly etc. plus i think you asborb slightly more.
well if you eat 50 grams of sugar you will not asborb as much as the sugar as if you mix it in water and drink it.
the difference is probably small, but there is one, not sure how other nutritients are effected though.
