Orange Juice Has a Secret

by Meaghan posted August 15, 2011

I think we all know by now that fruit juices like OJ are pretty high in sugar and a far second to eating an actual piece of fruit.┬áBut did you know that even “100% orange juice” really isn’t?

According to THIS REPORT, there’s also something else you may not want in your OJ…

Apparently, the only way orange juice companies like Tropicana can make consistently tasty OJ that lasts on shelves is by first removing oxygen from the juice to prevent spoilage. But this process also removes the natural flavor of the oranges, so they then dump artificial flavoring made by perfume companies back into the juice.

It may be made “not from concentrate,” but made from perfume isn’t much better!
