Default still need nutrients when using fruit juice?

I will be making some experiment gallons that will basically be pure fruit juice and honey. My question is, should I still use nutrients as I normally would, or tone it down a bit? The juice will be cranberry, blueberry, currant, cherry, and apple if that matters.

If its straight juice then yes.

I'd reduce them some for whole fruit but not juice........

I add nutrient to every non-beer fermentation.
