Should've Had a V8? Make Your Own More Delicious Vegetable Drink at Home
While the premise of V8 is healthy, the actual juice isn’t all that. The juice in V8 is made from concentrate, which means it’s a watered down version of the whole fruit’s juice. Also, additional flavors are added to enhance blandness. There aren’t any artificial flavors or preservatives, but if you are watching your salt content, you’ll definitely want to skip store bought V8. (An 8-ounce serving contains a hefty 640mg of sodium.) Splash varieties contain high fructose corn syrup and fruit juices from concentrate.
Without all the added extras, V8 could actually be a great addition to your diet. Ready to make DIY this popular supermarket juice? You can, and it only takes 9 steps.
