| | Orange Juice "good" for Type-2? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Here is my opinion:
Orange Juice is a HUGE dose of sugar (it's fructose, NOT glucose). Although it's Vitamin C (lots!) and a couple of other vitamins in smaller quantity plus a couple of minerals (Potassium, Zinc), all of the fiber is left behind by the squeezing process.
What you're drinking is basically a natural "junk food" of empty carbs-- HUGE numbers of carbs. And with such high acidity, pH = 3.5, it's really bad for teeth.
T2 diabetics WILL NOT benefit from consuming such intensively concentrated sugars. It's a treatment of choice for Hypoglycemia. And obviously, therefore, a terrible choice for T2 diabetics who already suffer from elevated blood sugars.

If you really love the taste, eat the orange: keep the fiber! But an apple is a better choice in most ways.
