How Many Calories Are in a Glass of Carrot Juice?

By Regan Hennessy

Although it’s typically not consumed as frequently as fruit juices, carrot juice provides a nutrient-packed alternative to less healthy drinks like soda. Learning the facts about carrot juice calories and nutrition can give you the incentive you need to start incorporating it into your diet on a regular basis.

Caloric Information

One 8-oz. cup of canned carrot juice provides 94 calories according to the USDA’s National Nutrient Database. Many of these calories come from natural sugar already present in the carrots, so make sure canned carrot juice that you purchase doesn’t contain added sugar.

Features

One glass of canned carrot juice contains 2.24 g of protein and only 0.35 g of fat. Of the 21.9 g of carbohydrates present in a single glass, just over 9 g come from sugar, while close to 2 g come from dietary fiber.

Considerations

Carrot juice provides 45133 IU of vitamin A and 689 g of potassium. Other nutrients in the juice include vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. Drinking too much carrot juice could overload your body with vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, resulting in a yellow tint to your skin.
