There’s a dirty secret in your glass of orange juice. Even though it says “not from concentrate,” it probably sat in a large vat for up to year with all the oxygen removed from it. This allows it to be preserved and dispensed all year-round. Taking out all the O2 also gets rid of all the flavor. So the juice makers have to add the flavors back in using preformulated recipes full of chemicals called “flavor packs.” Mmm, delicious, fresh-squeezed ethyl-butyrate!
I used to drink orange juice everyday. But about 5 years ago, I felt bad after drinking orange juice. At that time, I did not know the reason. Since then, I seldom buy orange juice. I rather eat real oranges or make some tea with lime or lemon squeezed.
