Rotten juices

Tropicanna articleDid you know that many ready made orange juices are made with poor quality or rotten fruits? In the the press hundreds of cartons of a children’s orange juice drink are being recalled after the multi-packs of Tropicana Kids Orange Juice Drink were found to contain contaminated water are easily identifiable as the individual cartons are unbranded and do not have any batch or date codes on them.  Many companies use poorly quality fruits in their drinks and these require pasteurisation to kill the microbes. In my opinion it its better to squeeze the juice yourself from fresh fruit or to the eat the whole fruit itself. That’s the most organic way as the nutrient content will be higher and the juice will be fresher and tastier.
