A major adjustment to Australia's food health star rating has made citrus growers across Australia feel very uneasy.Because that would mean that a bottle of 1% pure orange juice is not as healthy as Diet Coke.

不过澳洲的健康专家们,包括2020年的年度杰出澳人米克(James Muecke)医生都指出,现在是时候将果汁视为软饮料了。

据《悉尼先驱晨报》报道,在今天召开的澳洲和新西兰食品监管部长级论坛会议上,很有可能通过投票取消100%纯果汁自动被评为五星的修改意见,届时水将保留5星地位。

水果种植业担心,其结果可能导致果汁的健康评级在2.5至3.5星之间,有可能比3.5星的健怡软饮料还要低。

目前健康评星最低的,是可口可乐等软饮料,只有0.5星。

澳洲柑橘业协会的CEO汉考克(Nathan Hancock)称,他担心这会向消费者传递出错误的信息,在澳洲人已经普遍摄入蔬菜水果不足的情况下,会以为喝果汁还不如喝健怡可乐。

汉考克认为,像健怡可乐这样的饮料,“实际上就咖啡因加人工甜味剂以及水,怎么能说是比橙汁、胡萝卜汁或芹菜汁更好的饮料呢?”

不过澳洲牙科协会维州分会的CEO霍普克拉夫特(Matthew Hopcraft)并不认同汉考克的观点。

霍普克拉夫特认为,如果果汁确实没有健怡可乐健康,“那就有理由修正健康星级评定系统”。

澳洲的2-5岁儿童中,三分之一的儿童乳牙有蛀牙,12-14岁儿童中,有五分之三人恒牙有蛀牙,部分原因正是因为果汁。

霍普克拉夫特说:“我们知道,一般而言幼儿是不喝软饮料、运动饮料和能量饮料的,所以对于幼儿来说,在他们的饮食构成中,果汁占的比例比其他含糖饮料更大。”

他还指出,一杯果汁中含有多达4茶匙的糖,含果肉的果汁的含糖量也少不了多少。
