Real Fruit Juice Flavors – These Fruit Juices Have Masala!
Three lip-smacking Real Fruit Juice Flavors that have an added masala. How does the guava, pomegranate, and mixed fruit juice from one of India’s top fruit juice brands rate on our taste-o-meter?
Packaged fruit juices are often very unidimensional, full of sugar and nothing else. May we suggest adding some masala to your glass of fruit juice? Fresh fruit juice and masala go very well together but does a packaged juice blend well with masala? We set out to find exactly that! Real fruit juice is one of the most popular fruit juice brands in India and has introduced a range of Real Fruit Power Masala Juices recently.
We reviewed four Real Fruit Power Masala Juices – Masala Guava, Masala Pomegranate, Masala Mixed Fruit Juice, and Masala Sugarcane. Let’s find out more about these fruit juices in our Real Fruit Power Masala Juices review.
Real Fruit Power Masala Juices – Everything You Need to Know

#3 Price Range
The 180 ml tetra packs are priced at Rs 20, whereas the 1 L packs are priced in the Rs 105-120 range.
#4 Main Ingredients
With packaged fruit juices, the biggest concern is the amount of added sugar. The naturally occurring sugars from fruits aren’t as harmful as refined or added sugars.
What makes these fruit sugars relatively better than refined sugar is the glycemic index and digestibility.
Since fruits also have some amount of fiber, they slow down the digestion process, making you feel fuller for longer.
#5 Nutrition facts
Following are the nutrition facts for Real Fruit Power Masala Juices per 100 ml-
45-55 kcal, with negligible amounts of proteins and fats, and 11-12 g of carbohydrates.
Both variants 180 ml and 1 L are packed in tetra packs. The 1 L Real Fruit Power Masala Juices come in tetra packs with plastic lids.
Real Fruit Power Masala Juice Flavours – Our Review Factors
In addition to taste, the sugar to fruit pulp ratio can easily make or break the packaged fruit juice.
Some important parameters of Team Mishry’s Real Fruit Power Masala Juices review include the taste, aroma, consistency, price, and other such factors.
Could we taste the fruit that was mentioned on the pack? Or was it just a masala-loaded liquid?
Is the aroma bold enough for us to be able to distinguish between Real Fruit Power Masala Juices, if a blind taste test was performed? Does the masaledar aroma make its presence felt?
Is there some fibrous pulpiness? Or is it a smooth fruit beverage?
The quantity and quality of ingredients used have a huge impact on the final price of the product. Does this mean an average-priced fruit juice is made using average ingredients?

#1 Real Fruit Power Masala Guava
Packed in a green-colored carton, that resembles the color of guava. Real Fruit Power Masala Guava contains 20% of the fruit pulp.
This orange-colored fruity masala beverage had a fresh aroma! It resembled that of ripe guava slices with generously sprinkled chaat masala. The consistency wasn’t too thin or too pulpy. We could see little fibers in the glass too.
In addition to this mild pulpy consistency, this Real Fruit Power Masala Juice variant also had some graininess. This comes from the ground seeds of the fruit.
- Real Fruit Power Masala Juice has a shelf life of six months.
- Once opened, you are recommended to consume it within five days.
- The 1 L carton is priced at Rs 105.
- This variant contains 20% of guava pulp.
- The consistency is mildly grainy and pulpy.
- The guava variant was hands down the tastiest masala juice from the entire range.
- It has well-balanced levels of sweetness.
- The aftertaste resembles that of a bowl of fruit chaat.
- The overall fruity and salty flavors combine well.
Best Suited For
Craving for some guava after its season is over? This Real Fruit Power Masala Guava variant is pretty close to the real thing, in the liquid form of course.
#2 Real Fruit Power Masala Pomegranate
Similar to the Guava variant, Real Fruit Power Masala Pomegranate too is packed in an easy-pour carton. The ingredient list mentions the addition of spices and spice extracts like cumin, black pepper, ginger, and capsicum.
Right as we opened the seal, a fresh pomegranate-like aroma was noticed. This masala fruit juice variant had a lighter consistency as compared to the guava variant. The color is quite close to the real pomegranate seeds.
The grainy texture from ground seeds was felt here too.
- It is recommended to refrigerate the carton once opened.
- A variety of spices and spice extracts have been used.
- 100 ml of this Real Fruit Power Masala Juice variant provides 50 kcal.

Best Suited For

#3 Real Fruit Power Masala Mixed Fruit Juice
The mixed fruit variant of the masala fruit juice range by Real looks like orange juice.
When talking about the aroma, there was no one dominant fruit overpowering the others.
Consistency-wise, we were quite surprised looking at how thin this was. Packaged fruit juices are typically a tad bit thicker, even when they are not ‘pulpy’.
The taste was very similar to the original mixed fruit juice, with lowered sweetness. The masala flavor was hard to spot.
- Real Fruit Power Masala is packed in an orange-colored easy-pour carton.
- It has a shelf life of six months.
- This variant is priced at INR 115.
- The consistency is lighter than the other two variants.

#4 Real Fruit Power Masala Sugarcane
Real Fruit Power Masala Sugarcane comes packed in a paper-based carton. This is 100% recyclable. Thumbs up for that! The six-layered packaging used ensures maximum nutrition retention.
The color of this masala fruit beverage is quite similar to a freshly squeezed glass of ganne ka ras.
The consistency and taste of this packaged sugarcane juice are the diluted version of the real thing. The natural sugarcane sweetness and thickness were quite low when compared to the OG beverage.
- This variant is available in 180 ml and 1 L tetra packs.
- The 1 L variant has a six-layered fully recyclable packaging.
- 25% of sugarcane juice has been used.
- Iodized and black salts have been added, in addition to ginger and mint.
- We could taste the black salt used.
- Visually, this resembles a fresh glass of sugarcane juice.
- This variant contains added sugars.
- It is more calorie-dense as compared to freshly squeezed sugarcane juice. (Fresh sugarcane juice- 39 kcal, Real Fruit Power Masala Sugarcane Juice- 56 kcal)
- It is a watered-down version of sugarcane juice.
- Neither the sugarcane sweetness, nor the masala can be tasted well.

Comparing the calories from natural fruit juice and the packaged variants may not always be easy. Looking at a number like 56 kcal for 100 ml, you may want to try this.
