Fruit Juice Australia along with juice manufacturers and Citrus Australia has formed an industry wide alliance to support the fruit juice and citrus industry in Australia. The first public education campaign will help explain the role of fruit juice with no added sugar in the diet, and counter some of the misinformation about juice. The campaign is research based and will provide credible and reliable information to help people make more informed choices about their drink choices.
The research was conducted and analysed by independent third party CSIRO Food and Nutrition Flagship: the results are objective, fact based, and backed by Australia’s leading scientists.
It is a secondary analysis of the 2011/12 Australian Health Survey, originally conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. It is the largest and most comprehensive health study ever conducted in Australia, based on 12,000 persons aged 2+. This survey is the very latest and most comprehensive understanding of how Australians eat/drink.
