I'm looking into purchasing some V8 vegetable juice, because it's very hard for me to get in as much as I need. I do try, as I get pretty close, but this would be a good supplement Smile. I eat salads and fruits daily, and this seems like a good addition to my diet.

Is it all that it promises to be? Or do you think it's another product full of preservatives to keep it fresh that would do worse than good?

I'm looking forward to hearing any feedback Smile

I love V-8 Juice and actually like the slightly spicy one. Used to drink it occasionally before I really started reading labels. I'm sure there are probably better ways to get your veggies, because I think that stuff has a lot of sodium in it. Still, I think occasionally drinking it would be fine.

Here's something interesting I found from the site:

How many calories and grams of carbohydrates are in an 8-ounce glass of V8® Vegetable Juice?
V8® 100% Vegetable Juice contains 50 calories, is naturally fat-free, has 1/2 the carbs of orange juice1, and provides two full servings2 of vegetables in every 8-ounce glass.
1 V8® contains 10 grams of carbohydrates per 8-ounce serving. Orange juice contains 25 grams of carbohydrates per 8-ounce serving.
2 8 oz of V8® = 1 serving of vegetables = ½ cup, 3 servings in a 12 oz. V8. Daily Recommendations = 2 ½ cups of a variety of vegetables for 2,000 calorie diet. USDA MyPyramid.

V8 ® 100% Vegetable Juice provides vegetable juices from the following major color groups:


* Red GROUP—tomatoes and beets – provides powerful, natural antioxidants. The antioxidant Lycopene is found naturally in tomatoes, and helps protect against cell damage.
* Orange GROUP—carrots — delivers vitamin A (alpha— and beta—carotene) to help maintain vision and a healthy immune system.
* Green GROUP—V8® provides a sampling from this group of spinach, celery, lettuce, parsley, and watercress — when consumed in sufficient quantities, it helps round out your diet with other vitamins, minerals, and natural antioxidants.


Hm, since 50 calories isn't too much, maybe it's worth it, since it equates to 2 servings of veggies by itself in an 8 ounce glass Smile

It does sounds very good. I will give it a try since I don't remember what it taste like. Yummy or not? Confused

When I took my son to see a nutritionist for his overweight problem, she recommended a diet V-8 juice. I love the spicy one, too. I think it got 80 calories. No bigggie! I drank OJ for 120 before. This is a bargain.

I've always loved the juice. It does seem like it'd have a bunch of sodium in it, but it just adds to the taste Laughing. I think I'll need to pick some up as I probably hardly even come close to daily veggie requirements Embarassed.

Yes, there is definitely a low sodium version. And V8 is not high in sugar at all.

I drink V8 almost every day. I buy two cases at a time at Costco.

Drink your vegetables. There are soooo many worse drinks out there. And it is a terrrific diet aid. Having a V8 instead of poor-choice snack has kept me trim. And energized. :->

Love V8 juice. I buy both the spicy and regular. Don't kill me, but before I read the sodium content, I used to add......SALT!!!! That was a looonggg time ago, tho and now I just drink it "straight up".

It is a great way to help get your veggies in and it helps me from reaching for a less healthy alternative.

I haven't tried the original V8, can't get myself to drink it. When tomato soup gets cold it makes me want to vomit. The other V8 juices that are mixed with fruits and stuff are quite delicious.

I'm sure the original V8 juice has a lot of vitamins and minerals along with other additives, but just can't drink that sucker down....blaaah

It's good to know that they have this version now Wink. We used to do the same, buy a case at Sam's club, and it was always there, looking tasty so it did keep me from reaching for the cookies and doughnuts. Maybe I should really start drinking V8 again....

And ariesxtreme, my SO is the same. He just doesn't like it. I guess it just depends on peoples preferences. But I gotta agree with you, the fruit versions (or additional 'things') do taste really good!

It's an acquired taste, I think. I used to not care for it at all, and I can't remember what inspired me to buy it originally. Probably to have on hand for Bloody Marys! Laughing

I definitely started drinking it solo ONLY because it was good for me, and I feared I wasn't get my quota of vegetables. Now I have some in the car, in my locker at work -- I always have a snack, hot or cold, that will hold my appetite back for another hour or two. A lifesaver over the years, really. For me. Especially when I don't know if I'm hungry or thirsty, or I know I'll have to eat again in a couple of hours (dinner with a friend, etc.) Now it tastes really good to me. I get cravings for it.

A great, healthy rush of energy, too, I've noticed.

I love the taste of regular V-8, but I go for the Low Sodium. Now that I am used to it, I find that it tastes more tomato-y than the regular and I like it a lot. But at first it tasted icky because I was used to the flavor that the extra sodium provided.

I love Caesar! Is V8 anywhere close to tasting like that? Bad Grin

I love V8 juice but it has to be the Citrus or Tropical fruit flavour Smile

wave Does anybody make your own veg juice? Do you think it will be better than V8? At least fresher I would think. Very Happy
