Nutrition news alert about the orange juice scam

Print Friendly

Safe Body Detoxification(NaturalHealth365) You’ll never get this nutrition news in the lame-stream media. Store bought “fresh” squeezed orange juice is not really fresh. Unfortunate, but true, most people buying commercially-produced fruit juices have been deceived by clever marketing campaigns. So, if you trust, the most famous brands such as, Tropicana, Minute Maid, or Florida’s Natural – think again.

Watch out for orange juice that always taste the same

Most popular beverages follow a recipe to ensure a consistent flavor. In fact, they model a system used by Coca Cola, Pepsi or even Starbucks Frappuccino. You see – the beverage industry and weird science make sure that store bought orange juice is consistent when you consume it – every time.

Boosting the flavor is a secret within orange juice makers. But, anytime makers announce a “breakthrough” carton orange juice – I get suspicious about drinking it. Keep in mind, juice makers know that if they preserve the orange color and flavor – consumers will keep buying their products without question.

The dirty little secret behind commercial orange juice

Television ads for juice would have you believe that a local farmer hand picks the oranges before juicing and boxing the end product. But, you know what they say, truth is stranger than fiction. After the oranges are squeezed, the juice is stored in giant holding tanks and the oxygen is removed from them. This allows the (flavorless) liquid to keep for up to a year without spoiling.

Centralized juice manufacturing destroys all nutritional value.

By stripping the oxygen it means the flavor providing substances are removed. Then, the juice companies hire flavor and fragrance companies, the same ones that formulate our perfumes, and personal care items – to create their magic of deception.

Don’t believe the marketing hype and lies of the dead juice producers

Millions of consumers actually believe it’s better to buy orange juice labeled “fresh squeezed” versus regular brands. In addition, the public is told that orange juice is made with real Florida Valencia oranges. That would be nice – if it were true – but these juice companies simply sell chemically altered, sugar water. Don’t buy it – especially if you’re diabetic!

Protect your health by doing critical research

Here are the facts: Pepsi owns Tropicana, Coke owns Minute Maid and together they produce over 59 percent of the orange juice in the United States. Do you trust these brands to create healthy products?

The commercial juice industry generates billions of dollars per year. And, make no mistake about it, they do not have your health as a top priority. Profit margins are the name of the game and this quote from Pepsi Cola beverages chief Massimo D’Amore says it all:

“We have lost perspective here on the primary reason we are in business, which is to make money.”

Although there’s nothing wrong with making money – food producers should always keep the health of their customers – a top priority. Don’t assume anything – learn about where your food comes from; what has been done to it and avoid unhealthy or unethically created foods.

By the way, a winning strategy for (real) fresh orange juice is to make it yourself with whole, organically grown oranges. Just be sure to peel away the orange rind before juicing. I, personally, use the Jay Kordich jucier – it’s reasonably priced and easy to use.

    Yep, trace the food and drinks back to who make them and research their reputation history. That’s what I do sometimes when I come across a new brand.

  • Rob

    I Like your Site, However there is one mistake you made.
    In the beginning of your article you had stated that we would never get this info from the “lame stream media”. Thw same issue was reported a year ago by ABC news close to a year ago.
    It was also a print story in several papers and news sites. Other than that you are spot on.

  • Harry

    Yep,the best tasting orange juice I ever tasted, was from freshly squeezed oranges in Spain. Totally different taste!

    Does this apply to grapefruit juice as well–“fresh” not from concentrate?

  • Douglas

    Re: Wanda “Does this apply to grapefruit…”
    Yes. If it’s in a bottle or a can and is
    ready to drink it is denatured.

    there you have it…
    Coke and Pepsi should pay 60% into health care; this is criminal behavior essentially. it is so disappointing

  • Joe3

    Fortunately I live in Florida and on many occassions walked across the street and picked oranges off the trees, came back, and had fresh self squeesed orange juice – There’s nothing in the stores like it, and I never purchase store juice!! I do however occassionally go to the neighborhod grove and buy a fresh squeesed gallon, yes, depending on the type of oranges available, the taste/flavor does change. I know I pay more at the grove, but it’s Sooooo worth it ../

  • Rose

    What about frozen orange juice concentrate. Is that better than bottled? We like the Aldi’s.
