1 in 10 people in the U.S. are already frequently drinking green juice. Here’s who’s going green most frequently:

  • Parents: 50 percent of parents who drink green juice do so frequently (vs. 21 percent of non-parents who drink green juice)
  • Urbanites: 43 percent of city-dwelling green juice drinkers sip frequently, compared to 29 percent of suburban and 26 percent of rural dwellers
  • Youth: 44 percent of green juice drinking millennials drink green frequently, compared to 38 percent of Gen X and 17 percent of boomers
  • Women: 16 percent of women in the U.S. are drinking green juice frequently, compared to just 12 percent of the men

It’s what’s inside the bottle that counts

Green juice drinkers are looking to see what’s in the bottle – 86 percent look at the ingredient label before taking a sip

  • Nearly 80 percent of millennials (78 percent) who have heard of green juice check the ingredient label (vs. 67 percent of the general population)

  • Low sugarcontent (38 percent)
  • Seeing a greenvegetable listed as the first ingredient(36 percent)
  • The bottle in-hand contains more vegetables than fruits (34 percent)

  • Spinach (58 percent)
  • Kale (47 percent)
  • Avocado (30 percent)
  • Cucumber (30 percent)
  • Celery (25 percent)
  • Romaine lettuce (10 percent)
