I noticed this in another discussion today. MonaVie is different in the US and Canada.
it’s worth noting the inconsistency across the labels. The US label clearly shows that it’s 3 grams of sugar, while the Canadian label shows that it’s 4 grams of sugar. Also Canadian MonaVie is only 20 calories per 30ml (ounce) while the American MonaVie is 30 calories. Those are some big differences. I don’t know how one can claim MonaVie has any science to it’s blend, when it can’t even be a consistent drink across two neighboring countries.
In the past distributors have claimed MonaVie to be a low-sugar drink. If we are to believe the Canadian label it has 32 grams of sugar per 8 ounces… which is more than most 8 ounce drinks I’ve come across. I guess when I asked if MonaVie is the Worst Juice in America, I should have asked about Canada as it would have come up as having 25% more sugar (though fewer calories). I don’t know why someone wouldn’t just take another juice and put it in their shot glass instead… it would be the same or less sugar than the Canadian version. It would seem like there’s nothing special to distributors’ of MonaVie being a low-sugar drink – just the size of the serving.
