Old Orchard Brands has launched two new tropical variants in its Healthy Balance reduced-sugar juice drink range. Old Orchard Healthy Balance Pineapple Orange and Peach Mango contain 5g of sugar and 20 calories per 8oz serving, and join a 12-strong range of Healthy Balance juice drinks.

The company said the new flavours, which use Splenda no-calorie sweetener, fit within new dietary recommendations from the US Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee. These called for a "massive reduction" in daily sugar intake to 12 teaspoons of sugar a day for US adults – after a report was issued estimating that Americans take in as much as 30 teaspoons of sugar a day.
