V8 vegetable juice is a popular beverage sold worldwide. It is made from 8 vegetables or a combination of vegetables and fruits. Although V8 juice contains salt, vegetable cocktail, citric acid, “natural flavoring” and ascorbic acid, it is said that it does not contain artificial colors or preservatives. Unfortunately, industrial preparation and transport may compromise the nutrient value of the juice. So instead of buying this popular beverage, make your own V8 juice at home. Since you are making it fresh, you are sure that that you get all the nutrients from vegetables. Not only is this home-made V8 juice healthier, it is also more affordable.
