Beverage Daily
PepsiCo is seeking to patent a method of adding fiber- and polyphenol-rich co-products from fruit and veg juice extraction back to juices and other beverages in a bid to improve their sensory and nutritional profile, and minimize waste from the juice extraction process. In patent application #20140234476 , filed in April 2014 and published last month, PepsiCo says that drinking juice is good for you, but isn’t quite the same as eating whole fruit, which typically contains more fiber, among other things.

Food Navigator
Sugar-derived methylglyoxal may damage ‘good’ cholesterol which helps protect against heart disease but protective proteins could counter this, according to research from the UK’s University of Warwick.
