Nectar by FDA standards can be doctored with additives and sugar. Fruit juice is generally the finest product aside from pulp that is available.

Agreed. Itís very sweet, but I have a sweet tooth...Iím the kid who snuck extra sugar in my kook-aid ;)
So for me itís perfect the way it is.

I haven't bought this one and the label isn't clear if there is added sugar just says pulp. I tried looking up the FDA rules on labeling pulp but they seem to only concentrate on beverages.

The label shows cane sugar as the 3rd ingredient. The first ingredient is filtered water and itís only 20% juice. Pulp is not doctored so there shouldnít be a labeling issue. Nectar is where things get fuzzy, PURE juice is not to be confused with this product which is made with only 20% of real juice, water and other ingredients.

Retail juice can be watered down, generally more than nectar which is also sugar laden. I donít see fructose here, thatís more prevelant in sodas and other tropical fruit drinks.

The label I posted for guanabana pulp(14 oz.), the one from Goya. It doesn't mention sugar, water, or 20% juice. Click on the link to see the label for the product from Goya. Please correct me if wrong but it seems to me this is a very different product from what was in the original "Nectar".

For my homemade soursop nectar I peeled the fruit, mashed the flesh through a strainer to eliminate the inedible fiber, and then added about 20% coconut water to the soursop pulp.  It was perfection (and still very sweet).  Made me wish I had two more trees!

If you can (carefully!) extract all seeds from pulp, add your liquid and blend in a blender you may get more juice extracted from the 'rag' during straining. I hav also used a cloth to squeeze the juice out.

There is sugar in everything unnecessarily, itís addictive , cheap and makes lots of monies while being a root cause of disease and body pain.

Iíd rather have a little sugar in soursop than mustard or chips though.
