Juice from concentrate vs. not from concentrate and other juice labels.

Natural juice. Juice from concentrate. Organic Juices. You've seen these labels and others on juice containers as you've wondered the aisles of your local grocery stores. But what do they mean? Does juice from concentrate vs not from concentrate make a difference? What counts as natural juice? Find the answers to these questions and more in the juice war of words.

Juice from concentrate.

Juices from concentrate are juices that are evaporated to remove the water out of the juice. By creating concentrated juices, large corporations reduce the weight and volumes of orange juice, grapefruit juice and other citrus juices - and thus the cost to transport the juices. This juice from concentrate is then reconstituted, with the water put back in, at the companies' bottling plants and then packaged for retail sales. Juice from concentrate is the norm in the United States, but there is a cost. Because concentrated juices are over processed, the texture and aroma of the juices are much different from juices not from concentrate. For better tasting juices, try juice not from concentrate. Or even better, fresh squeezed orange juice purchased at the store or squeezed at home just in time for breakfast.
