    9 grams in a glass of OJ? That's more than a cup of milk! Unbelievable. I'd need to see proof. Who is the manufacturer?

    might be true, but its an incomplete protein source.

    Also has 21 grams of sugar. It's more a carb source than protein source.

    Wouldn't the carbs and protein equal more than the listed calories or are the 4 calories per gram just an approximation?

    (21*4)+(9*4)=120
    5-9 170

    A typical 8oz Manadrin Orange Juice drink would have nutrition facts like:
    Calories: 90
    Sugars: 21g
    Protein: 1.5g

    A typical 8oz Orange Juice drink would have nutrition facts like:
    Calories: 110
    Sugars: 26g
    Protein: 1.7g

    9g of protein is quite a bit higher than I would expect. It is possible that the drink is protein fortified, or the "sac" is very concentrated in protein, but this seems unlikely. I think human error is more likely.

    The 4 grams per carb is just an approximation. OJ typically has about 3.9 calories per gram. Note that the total sugars is not necessarily the same as the number of carbs. It is interesting that the (21+9)*3.9~=115.

    looks wrong to me. that ratio of protien to carbs seems very wrong compared normal.
    normally there is about 10 times more carbs than protein per serving.

    yep 0.9 is more likely to be correct.

    the pack nutritional label may be wrong. that does happen as nutritionist are not people who check the label in most cases. the people who check it are more people concerend with food quality, safety etc.
