Technically, sugar is not purposefully removed from Juice Plus+.
However, the bottom line is that the daily ration of four Juice Plus+ capsules contains less than 1 gram of residual sugar, which represents less than 4 calories. This is insignificant from the glycemic standpoint, and also insignificant even in the most restrictive of diabetic diets.
The process of sugar removal that we have talked about in the past is basically a simplification of the proprietary process to reduce the stickiness of the powdered juices which causes the sugars to be bound by the more complex carbohydrates. This technique decreases the “water-loving” nature of the powder, and improves flowability in the encapsulation process.
An added advantage is that this process allows us to retain some of the soluble and insoluble fiber from the fruits, vegetables and berries which also contributes to the benefits of Juice Plus+.
