In terms of marcos and calories, yes. In terms of micro-nutrient content, probably not.

Don't nit-pick OP. It's not worth the time. A carb is a carb is a carb. I'm cutting, and I ate a donut today(was a jam one FYI), so what? Calories in calories out.

Are you asking if the carbs are in the same classes of saccharide or are you asking if they're, gram-for-gram, isoenergetic?

what does OP mean? and you said calories in calories out. so if your cutting, is it ok to eat some carbs if you workout?

OP=Opening Poster.

yes. just eat below your maintenance calories and you will lose weight. if all you eat 2000kcals of krispy kreme donuts and your maintenance is 2500cals, you will lose weight. just get enough protein in whilst cutting and fill your boots with foods you like, it does not have to be a chicken and brocolli chore.

The carbs in fruit juices tend to be sugars meaning they'll convert to fat easier if you don't use them. They are best consumed pre and post workout when your body will use them to restore glycogen to the muscles.

EDIT: If your running a calorie deficit and your macro's are in-line don't worry about it too much though.
