Kagome Juice

Until I visited Japan for the first time in 2009, I never knew purple carrots existed. So I was a little more than surprised when I first saw this drink in a convenience store…

Purple carrots in a juice box!

The name of this drink is yasai seikatsu 100 「Vegetable Life 100, 野菜生活100」 and the packaging says the drink has 20% more polyphenols (a type of antioxidant) from the purple carrots.

Ingredients of the drink include:

  • mostly vegetables:
    • grape
    • apple
