100% Pure Orange Juice Are You Getting What You Pay For?

There was a time I used to believe that 100% pure orange juice was good for you. As a matter of fact many people are deceived into thinking that orange juice is healthy.

The 100% pure, natural, and not from concentrate orange juice is not as healthy as you think. The manufactures want you to think you are getting the best of the crops. These particular orange juices cost more than the ones from concentrate and are placed in dressed up bottles to make them more attractive to people. They print on those fancy labels that the juice is from freshly squeezed oranges. The reality is 100% pure orange juice is not made from freshly squeezed oranges. Actually the orange juice goes through a number of processes before it is even put into those fancy bottles. Get ready for some shocking facts!

The oranges are picked and shipped and the juice is squeezed and pasteurized. This is done to extend the shelf life. Then the orange juice is placed in these huge tanks and is kept there for several months, possibly several years. Once the manufactures are ready to use the juice they have to restore the flavor that is lost by they way they process the juice. They use flavor packets filled with chemicals and parts of the orange and mix it in the juice. Orange juice is a highly processed drink. The not from concentrate juice is no different from the other brands of concentrated juices.

Orange juice is not healthy for anyone for a number of reasons, but this reason makes me never want to drink even a swallow of the juice ever. What is the point of storing the juice for a long amount of time then sell it to the consumers? This is horrible and people need to know exactly what the manufactures do to orange juice.

If you want to drink juice, the best thing I would advice anyone to do is get a juicer and make your own juices. You can squeeze your own oranges and make juice for you and your family. Also it is wise to take a blender and make some healthy smoothies out of fresh fruits and milk. At least you will get the whole fruit and the fiber that naturally comes with it. Smoothies and homemade juices are tastier too. It helps with weight loss, constipation, and keeps the chemicals out of your body. I like to take fresh lemon juice and put in my water. Some times I will take a little natural sweetener and add to the lemon water. It is much healthier for me than juices that go through several processes.

Oranges are loaded with vitamin "C" True or False Not all Vitamin "C" is natural. I have been just like you believing a lie as we have been led from the truth by clever marketing con's. To give you an example which has the highest concentration of natural vitamin C has to be Rose Hips, and there is NO vitamin C in oranges, also many people are allergic to eating oranges. Like your article. Thanks
