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.
