Exploring the Nutritional Value of Fresh Watermelon Juice

nutritional value of watermelon juice

Ahh… Watermelons… No other fruit, in our opinion, exudes thirst-quenching and refreshing vibes quite like it. So why not get to know about it a bit more?

Before we get to the nitty gritty, how about some fun facts? Did you know that there are more than 1,000 varieties of watermelon? And did you also know that the often discarded rind can actually be eaten and has so many more uses?

Watermelon rinds are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Eating them is great! On top of that, watermelon rinds are also used to make supplements like l-citrulline capsules. Seeing that l-citrulline is said to improve blood flow and reduce blood pressure, throwing away those rinds all these years has been such a waste! That’s why we’re glad more companies are making snacks with the rinds.

Though we now know the benefits of the rind, the star of the watermelon has always been its flesh. Often sweet, the flesh is usually eaten as it is or made into juice. Now speaking of juice…

92% of a watermelon is just its water content. Neat, huh? We start looking for ways to cool off when the weather gets hotter. When we’re blinded by the heat, we can find ourselves drinking more sugary beverages - more than we like. Think how many calories those can add up to! With watermelon juice, we can easily skip those. 

Fresh Watermelon Juice Calories

Pure watermelon juice is only about 70 calories. That can vary depending on the brand that sells them, but it’s a pretty good benchmark. Pure watermelon juice is worth the little calories! For those minding their diets, drinking watermelon juice would be a great alternative to sweet teas and sodas.

Pure Watermelon Juice Nutrients

Watermelon juices are said to be great sources of vitamins A and C. They also have some potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and protein. Even small in amount, it can make an impact when paired with other nutrient-rich food and drinks. That’s what a balanced diet is for.

Why Fresh Watermelon Juice is Best

fresh watermelon juice

You may have noticed that, throughout this little read, we’ve been describing watermelon and watermelon juice to be pure or fresh. And that’s no mistake. If you were to simply walk into the supermarket and grab a bottle of watermelon juice, chances are you’re not getting them fresh or “pure”. 

Pre-packed watermelon juice can be riddled with added sugars, preservatives, and artificial colors and flavorings. Even that watermelon juice can be made with concentrates. While one can argue that this kind of juice can still have nutritional value, it will likely be greatly diminished and practically rendered “useless” because of the other unnecessary ingredients. 

We’d also like to take this time to say that pure or cold pressed watermelon juice tastes great as it is. It really doesn’t need anything added to it. If anything, it can help make other juices taste better. For example, if you were to make green juice and need some sweetness added to it, add some watermelon or watermelon juice! It’ll help water down the juice without actually watering it down. Plus, it’ll add some natural sweetness to an otherwise earthy and “grassy” flavored drink.
