‘The Fruit Juice Solution’ Is Better Than Ever, Says Dr. Richard C. Miller

Dr. Steve Miller, president and chief executive officer of PepsiCo, has said he has “no reason to doubt” that he can beat back the rise in obesity rates by introducing a fruit juice substitute that combines juice, fruit juice syrup, and sugar.

He also believes that there are enough fruits and vegetables to meet Americans’ nutritional needs.

But if he’s right, and we can get more fruit, more fruit juice and more fruit-based nutrition in our diet, that will mean the world of food is finally beginning to look different than it has been in decades.

But is it really?

Is it possible to add fruit to a diet that includes sugar and sugar-sweetened beverages?

Can we achieve the health benefits of eating fruit with more sugar than we do now?

Is the health benefit of eating more fruits and veg than we eat now even possible?

And is there a reason to believe that we will see more fruits, vegetables and other fruit-derived foods in our diets?
