An orange has a lot of fiber which both makes you feel full and is good for your intestinal health. Processed orange juice is mostly sugar and vitamins -- might as well just down a multivitamin with your orange crush if you ask me (which you did not).
Now if it was a smoothie machine, that might be different...
Fruit juice is good for you. Too much fruit juice is not good for you. And you are right, solid fruit is way, way better for you.
Sad that the MMSD director of food services is quoted in that article as falling back to "but it's JUICE!!!"
