Diane Welland MS RD Comment ID #793

Submitted 10/24/2014

October 24, 2014

FR Docket # 2014-02939

Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee,

The Juice Products Association (JPA) would like to submit the attached comments on 100% fruit juice for your review and consideration. We reviewed comments and slides presented by Subcommittee 1 and the Added Sugars Working Group during Meeting #5 and though we recognize the value of the information presented, we noticed two points related to fruit and vegetable juice that need to be addressed:

1. Fruit Juice Concentrate which is Reconstituted to Single-Strength Fruit Juice Should Not Be Considered An “Added Sugar”
2. Fruit Juice Is An Important Part of A Quality Diet

The attached comments specifically address these two points.

JPA is a trade association whose international membership consists of major processors, growers, packers, brokers and distributors of a wide variety of 100% fruit and vegetable juices, juice beverages, drinks, jams, jellies, fruit spreads and other fruit products.

JPA would like to thank you for your consideration in this matter.
