Description
Guava juice is a fruit juice obtained by squeezing, pressing or otherwise crushing the interior of an guava. Alternatively you can cut guava into cubes and blend it in a mixer with water and strain it. Approximately 2 cups of guava cubes when blended with 1 cup of water and strained yields approximately 1 1/2 cups of juice. Guava juice is a nutrition powerhouse with naturally occurring vitamins and minerals and many antioxidants.

How to Select
All types of juice can be found in health food and grocery stores. Look for fresh juices with pulp in the refrigerated section. Some producers add citric acid or ascorbic acid to juice beyond what is naturally found in the guava. Some also fortify the guava juice with nutrients such as calcium and Vitamin D. Reduced-acid varieties of guava juice are also marketed. Hence, choose accordingly from the variety.
