KEY INGREDIENTS

Vegetable juices

We use a wide variety of vegetables to create our delicious blends. Our quality carrot juice is mainly from California, other vegetables including spinach, beet, and yellow carrot juice are sourced from farmers in North America when seasonally available. Our sweet potatoes and purple carrots are sourced internationally.

Fruit juices

We use nearly 20 different types of fruit including apple, grape, mango puree, kiwi, strawberry, and many more to add natural sweetness and create uniquely flavored juices. These juices are sourced within the U.S. and internationally.

INGREDIENTS FOR FLAVOR


We select ingredients to add unique flavors to V8 Veggie Blends and V-Fusion. Many of these are commonly used, but others you may not be familiar with.  We’ve explained some of these here.

Citric acid

Citric acid occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables such as oranges, lemons, limes, and tomatoes. We add it for tartness and to control the acidity of our products to ensure product safety. The citric acid we use is derived from either sugar or corn crops that may be grown from genetically modified seeds.

Malic acid

We add it for tartness and flavor and to maintain the safety of our products. Although naturally-occurring in many fruits and vegetables such as apples and grapes the malic acid we use is manufactured.

Natural flavors

Our natural flavors are primarily derived directly from fruits and vegetables. No animal products are used in the natural flavoring for V8 juices.

Sucralose

Sucralose is in V8 V-Fusion Light varieties. We add it for sweetness and flavor without increasing added sugars or calories. Although sucralose does not occur naturally, it is safe to use in all food products.

OTHER INGREDIENTS


Vitamin A

Vitamin A is primarily derived from the high-quality carrot juice. In some cases, it may be necessary to add additional vitamin A through the addition of beta carotene. It is considered an antioxidant.

Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)

Ascorbic acid is another name for vitamin C. It occurs naturally in many foods and we add it to replace the naturally-occurring vitamin C that may be lost during preparing and cooking the juice. It is considered an antioxidant.

Vitamin E

Some of the products also have Vitamin E. We add alpha tocopheryl acetate as a vitamin supplement to add vitamin E.
