Sugar cane juice is unprocessed and unrefined and therefore contains minerals, vitamins and antioxidants which are not found in refined sugar. It also contains more complex and natural sugars which are somewhat better for the body than white, crystalline refined sugar. Sugar, of course, gives us energy and this is the main benefit of sugar cane juice. There is probably no harm in drinking sugar cane juice occasionally but, like anything, it would be unhealthy to have too much. The biggest health concern, however, would be how hygienic the street seller was with his crushing machinery and in keeping his containers clean.

I totally agree with owlwings. There is no problem in the juice because its all natural the problem is the seller and the machine to squeeze the juice. We should consider first hygiene and cleanliness in our food.

Hi dear, Sugar cane juice is available here in this place also in summer season. I think the season yet to start and not seen the sugar canes in juice shop. I don't like the sweetness of sugar cane and I haven't drunk this juice till so far. The health benefits already explained the other poster. I too concerned about the hygiene and I don’t think it is preferable to consumer the juice from a juice vendor in the street. I already seen there are so many ‘flys’ are on the sugar cane, may be due to extra sweetness (or they too aware about the health benefits).

As long as the juice is fresh and clean, it's very good for you. It has a lot of minerals as well as Vitamins and polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants. The sugar content is fairly low, since it hasn't been processed. I don't think it would hurt you to drink it daily. It's healthier than a lot of other things we drink and eat daily.

I agree its all natural. It's healthier than all the processed drinks in the groceries.

This one of my super favorite drink in the world. The taste is naturally sweet no need to add sugar. I can only drink that if I am in the mall your lucky you have one in your neighborhood you can buy a gallon and stock it in the fridge. I'd prefer drinking sugar cane than smoothies and soft drinks. I am not sure about the health benefits though I know its all natural because it is freshly squeeze. Enjoy and cheers.

Hi, We also like to drink sugarcane juice in summer. When it is added with ginger it tastes more delicious. It quenches our thirst and maintains our water level in the body in hot season. It gives us energy. some sugarcane seller add some lemon juice in it.

I don't know anything about sugar cane juice as that is not something that is available to us. That said, I do find that it is important to drink a lot more fluids during the warmer months of the year because of the fact that we are quite likely to get dehydrated when it is hot outside. We drink a lot of Kool Aid and water during the summer so that we are able to all stay hydrated.
