Orange Juice Taste Test

Whether you enjoy orange juice with your breakfast or with a mid-day snack, OJ is one of the most beloved beverages. In fact, Americans drink around 3.2 gallons of orange juice per person, per year! When purchasing the citrus-flavored treat, buy juices labeled 100% orange juice to ensure you're getting only OJ. Some other terms you'll find on the packaging:

PASTEURIZED
Almost all supermarket orange juice is pasteurized (heated to a high temperature), increasing its shelf life and ensuring that the juice doesn't separate.

FROZEN CONCENTRATED ORANGE JUICE (FCOJ)
This is orange juice with the water removed. When prepared according to package directions, FCOJ has about the same amount of vitamin C as not-from-concentrate juice.

FROM CONCENTRATE
Water has been removed from this juice for storage, then added back in before bottling. In terms of nutrition and price, buying a carton of OJ "from concentrate" is about the same as mixing it yourself.

FORTIFIED ORANGE JUICE
These varieties have added nutrients. Choose ones that have the same Percent Daily Value of calcium (30% DV) and vitamin D (25% DV) as a glass of milk.

Read on to find out which juices are our top picks.

    • See What Little Ricky From "I Love Lucy" Looks Like Today

      When Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz welcomed a son into the world, so did the characters they played on I Love Lucy. Lucy Ricardo gave birth to "Little Ricky" in season two. But real-life Lucy and Desi didn't want their baby on screen for obvious reasons, so they cast a wide net in search of a set of similar-looking twins. (Having two children alternate for one role helps shows adhere to child-labor laws that limit camera time for the industry's youngest actors.) Desi Arnaz chose15-month-old Joe and Mike Mayer based on a photo he'd seen of them at a Twins Club picnic, where their mother was president, the Idaho-Press Tribune reports. The newspaper caught up with the men, age 64, who both live in

    • Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are clearly moving on from their divorce in two very separate ways

      It seems like we've spent enough time wallowing in sadness over Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce at this point that we can all start to have a little fun with it. Especially when news about their comings and goings post-divorce is still all some people seem to want to talk about, even though Jolie and Pitt are clearly moving on with their own lives. Us Weekly reports Angelina Jolie is developing her own line of perfume, which, I mean, good for her if that's where she sees her brand expanding. Will she call it Eaux de African Babies I've Saved? The perfume market definitely seems like an odd choice for Jolie's career expansion but, I mean, if Rihanna and Britney Spears can do it, why not

      In her late 20s, Lisa Brown had it all—the 5'10" former model married her college sweetheart, had attended grad school, and loved to cook gourmet meals and take spins in a classic Mustang convertible. But at 28 she began to mysteriously lose weight and vomit after eating. By the time she stepped on a scale to check her weight, she was 112 pounds, down from 140 pounds, reported Good Housekeeping in 2015. Her eventual diagnoses a few years later? Superior mesenteric artery syndrome, a condition in which her small intestine was being pinched and not allowing food to pass through, and gastroparesis, which kept her stomach from emptying correctly, reports People.

    • Chelsea Clinton shuts down trolls who targeted Barron Trump

      Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton has spoken out in defence of Barron Trump, the US president's youngest son, after trolls targeted him with cruel memes online during the inauguration.  In a Facebook post Chelsea, who spent much of her teenage years in the spotlight while her dad Bill Clinton was president, said the 10-year-old "deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid".  But she also turned political: "Standing up for every kid also means opposing POTUS policies that hurt kids". Criticism of Barron's facial expressions and posture during the inauguration was widespread on social media, with people mocking him and calling him out for looking bored.  A Saturday Night Live writer even tweeted: "Barron will be this country's first homeschool shooter". The tweet was later deleted.  People on Facebook praised Chelsea for defending Barron while also expressing her political ideas:  BONUS: Donald Trump's inauguration address included a Bane quote ›
