Are the nutrients in 100% fruit juice bioavailable?

A number of studies has shown that 100% fruit juice, especially orange juice, is a valuable source of nutrients and plant bioactives, such as carotenoids and polyphenols (e.g. hesperidin). Compared with whole fruit, 100% orange juice has a similar bioavailability of polyphenols and a higher bioavailability of carotenoids. In terms of absorption and metabolism of hesperidin, processed 100% fruit juice performs better than freshly squeezed juice thanks to the more efficient commercial juicing process.
