5Better than v8 Vegetable Juice

I can't imagine people would drink this because they actually like the taste. Presumably they'll buy it for the health benefits? It's easy enough to drink. Not quite as drinkable as V8 veg juice, but the V8 is 87% tomato juice! This seems less than 87% tomato juice and hence there will be a greater percentage of other vegetables. It still tastes predominantly of tomato juice though (it doesn't tell you the respective percentages, why on earth are they not legally obliged to give this information?).

Here's what it contains -- Tomato Juice, Carrot Juice, Beetroot Juice, Cucumber Juice, Celery Juice, Sauerkraut Juice, Onion Juice, Sea Salt, Lemon Juice, Spice Extracts, Dill Juice.

All "certified organic juices".

Onion juice?? . . . .but anyway.

The sodium content is a concern at 0.16g per 100ml. This is only 2/3rds of the sodium content of V8 Veg juice. However it is still a HUGE amount of sodium -- I believe that anything over 0.6g per 100g/100ml is defined as a high salt/sodium food in the UK (to get the amount of salt you multiply the sodium figure by 2.5). And it is recommended that you consume no more than 2.4g of sodium a day. One of these 500ml cartons will contain 0.8g of sodium, so if you drink a carton a day you'll be using up a third of your recommended maximum sodium/salt intake!

I've been drinking a quarter litre a day of this juice for the past 2 weeks. Not sure if it's having any benefits, but I'll continue buying it and drinking it.

In conclusion it seems it might be a better choice than the V8 alternative, although it is quite expensive. I have to order it from Amazon as it doesn't seem to be sold in any supermarkets where I live.
