    My new SUV is only a V-6icon_sad.gif

    I don't care for the taste that much but still like it better than vegetables. I use it to replace the vegetables in my diet. On some blogs V8 is criticized for not having enough fiber and too much salt. Someone wrote that when V8 is manufactured, the nutrients are destroyed by the manufacturing process. I don't know if this is true or not. I could not find any studies or articles online discussing this. I still prefer it over broccoli, asparagus and spinach...hey Musclequest..please don't flame me icon_wink.gif

    I do like the low sodium V8. But, add vodka to the "hot & spicy" and it's like an instant Bloody Mary! WooHoo! =)

    Hey! icon_mad.gif LOL!
    Seriously though....I have really never thought about the sodium in regular V8. Has anyone tried the low/no sodium version?

    Cheers,

    I was wondering how many car guys would show up in this thread. icon_twisted.gif

    For me part of the reason for drinking the stuff is the sodium. As a result of how everything is made low sodium and my having what amounts to diabetes with salt (not as series as real diabetes), I am actually encoraged to salt my food and have the stuff. I can actually feel, and taste, the difference after having something with salt in it.

    ...so for the people who said there is no difference in taste difference, yes there is. Regular V8 is much better than the low sodium. As for the nutrition getting knocked out, I am going to have to look into that.

    Sedative: V8 is a vegetable drink... see above commercial if you haven't already.

    Edit: WOOT! 1000 post!

    V8 is cool... much better than regular tomato juice. I tend to drink more Orange juice... until I got a clue about the amount of sugar added.. now I'm always trying to reduce my sugar intake since I still tend to drink sugared pop occasionally. Need to get that out.

    Congrats on the 1000 points, btw, Mr. Eric...

    Nutritional Data: CAMPBELL Soup Company, V8 Vegetable Juice, Essential Antioxidants V8

    http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/10450/2

    It has vitamins A, C and K. But it looks like A and C are augmented. Some Zinc and lots of sodium.

    But there is so much more to foods than just vitamins. There are lots of phytonutrients that the body uses for good health. I dont know how well these survive processing. But evidently something is lost cuz look at what you get from a fresh vegetable...

    ...from a carrot

    Carrots, raw
    1.00 cup

    Nutrient Amount DV

    vitamin A ... excellent
    vitamin K ... very good
    vitamin C ... very good
    dietary fiber ... very good
    potassium ... very good
    vitamin B6 ... good
    manganese ... good
    molybdenum ... good
    vitamin B1 (thiamin) ... good
    vitamin B3 (niacin) ... good
    phosphorus ... good
    magnesium ... good
    folate ... good

    Health Benefits

    Carrots are an excellent source of antioxidant compounds, and the richest vegetable source of the pro-vitamin A carotenes. Carrots' antioxidant compounds help protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer and also promote good vision, especially night vision.

    and it goes on... http://whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=21

    ...from a tomato

    Tomato, ripe

    Plus 4 cyl cars are usually lighter in front allowing for balanced handling.
    Oh man, I can't stand it. Somebody do a thread about cars already.

    V8 juice makes a great base for a healthy soup I like. To a large pot add a large can of V8 juice; a stalk of chopped celery; chopped carrots; green beans; whatever other vegetables you like; wheat pasta; bullion cubes; some onion; and you've got a great low cost soup.

    I've started using the low sodium as my afternoon snack. As mentioned above, V8 makes a great base for soup.
