Does Tart Cherry Juice Have a Lot of Sugar?

13 October 2020 Cheribundi Marketing

You’ve heard how amazing tart cherry juice is, and you want to get all the antioxidants and anthocyanins, but you don’t necessarily want a whole load of sugar. Well, we have good news.

While there IS some sugar in tart cherry juice, it's the naturally-occurring fructose and glucose that all fruits have. These forms of sugar provide natural energy to our bodies, as well, and are actually part of our nutritional needs. And while some of our juices have some extra ingredients besides just tart cherries, they’re always all-natural and never contain any processed sugars.

Our Juices

Every bottle of Cheribundi is made to the strictest standards. We take the best tart cherries right from the orchard and then put it through our proprietary ‘gentle juicing’ method which ensures that none of the naturally-occurring nutrients within the tart cherries are harmed in the juicing process.

From there, we blend our juice with coconut water for HYDRO. Valerian root and lemon balm for RESET. Whey protein for PROTEIN. But other than fantastic, natural ingredients that will help the juice meet your needs, nothing. No preservatives, no sugar added, and all of our juices are non-GMO.
We work according to one simple mantra: Keep Good In, Leave the Rest Behind. That’s the science of winning right there.

Cheribundi was born out of the desire to capture more of the benefits of tart cherries. These little red fruits are nature’s secret weapon. A decade ago, a former athlete discovered the benefits and wanted to make sure they were true. So, he worked with a team of Cornell University researchers who confirmed that, indeed, tart cherries are every bit as beneficial as he suspected.

In addition to the naturally-occurring fructose and glucose that tart cherries have, they also have naturally-occuring melatonin, which may help to beat insomnia and ensure a more restful night of top quality sleep.

They’re also packed full of anthocyanins, which is an antioxidant that’s been linked to reducing inflammation, and can help to reduce muscle soreness. These are some of the major reasons that athletes love Cheribundi, and count on each glass to keep the good in.

The numbers

Let’s take it by the numbers, too: each 8oz glass of our Pure, 100% tart cherry juice packs a whole sixty tart cherries. And, none of our juices are from concentrate. From those sixty cherries, the total amount of grams of sugar per eight ounce serving is 25 grams of naturally occurring sugars, with no additives.

That eight-ounce serving size is so important because our Cheribundi community has created a ritual around it: one (or two!) eight ounce servings of Cheribundi per day. Over 300 professional and collegiate sports teams have joined in for the ritual too, citing noticeable improvements in their sleep and reduced soreness. If you’re looking to optimize your lifestyle, Cheribundi is the juice to help you level up.

The Challenge

Try our 7-Day Challenge and see how you feel at the end of it. Once you’re in the habit of consuming 8oz of Cheribundi everyday, you’ll start to really feel the benefits of this antioxidant-rich superfruit juice. And don’t worry, just because we don’t add sugar doesn’t mean that the juice doesn’t taste delicious. You’ll love its tart and subtle natural sweetness.
