There are various types of fruits, which grow in different parts of the world, and each one differs greatly from one another. Each fruit has particular chemical characteristics, colors and flavors, and although their consumption should be included in a healthy diet, it’s consumption is a choice dependent on personal taste.

Fruit juice, depending on the fruit used, has many minerals, trace minerals and macro minerals, which all have an important role in two general body functions: building and regulating.
