In brief: Part of a good start
In general, foods are in their healthiest form with a minimum of processing.
So an orange provides a better ratio of fiber and vitamins to sugar than orange juice. But orange juice is often fortified with calcium and vitamin d. For people with diabetes or who have trouble with low sugar spells, it needs to be balanced with some protein.
