The NHANES 2003-04 data show that OJ and GJ users drank less than an 8-ounce serving per day in the two-day recalls and about 30% of the Americans drank OJ in the two-day recalls – ranked sixth. The NHANES 2003-04 data also show that less than 1% of the Americans drank GJ in the two-day recalls – ranked at the bottom.Although OJ ranked sixth in the participant penetration rate and seventh in per capita consumption among the 14 beverages studied, OJ ranked number one in providing vitamins C and E, and folate; number two in providing potassium, iron, dietary fibers, vitamin B-6, and -carotene; and ranked last in providing sodium and cholesterol. OJ provided only 2.4% of the carbohydrates and 4.4% of the sugar in the average American diet. OJ has a high level of carbohydrates, but it also has many different kinds of vitamins and minerals. A recent story about the South Beach diet indicated that the dieters should eat some “good” carbohydrates, i.e., nutrient-rich carbohydrates. With the various nutrients found in OJ, OJ should be one of the good-carbohydrate sources for the South Beach dieters.
