How the deficiency of fruit juice affect the health:
Fibre is essential for good heart and bowel health. Also known as roughage or bulk, fibre is the part of plant foods that is not digested nor absorbed by the body. It passes through the digestive system and exits the body in the stool. Insoluble fibre creates bulky stools and helps reduce irregularity and constipation. Soluble fibre dissolves in water and helps you maintain low blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Some whole fruits contain fibre but, often, fruit juice does not.
Fruit contains fibre and it is lost in a process of making juice. Having fibre regularly in our diet helps us in improving digestive system. For example, three to four apples contain 12 to 15 grams of fibre and would make one cup of apple juice. However, an 8-ounce serving of apple juice contains no fibre. The fibre contained in the apples is totally lost during the production of the apple juice.

Excess amount sugar in Fruit juices can raise the problem of blood sugar and Fruit is not rich in vitamin but fruit juice is rich in vitamin C.
