orange juice nutrition facts calories and health benefits

One serving of orange juice has all the vitamin C you for a whole day. Orange juice is also high in potassium, and it’s a good source of folate and thiamine, two of the B-complex vitamins.

However, orange juice can be fairly high in calories and carbohydrates if you don’t watch your serving size. One 8-ounce cup has 112 calories and almost 26 grams of carbohydrates, so if you drink a large 20-ounce glass of orange juice, those numbers go up.

By comparison, one average-sized orange has about 60 calories, 15 grams of carbohydrates and 3 grams of fiber. But it also only has 70 milligrams of vitamin C. That’s still a substantial amount, but you’ll get more vitamin C with a glass of orange juice.
