The disadvantages of juice made from concentrate over fresh is the lost of nutrients in the process, but the 100% concentrate juice just as good as fresh juice.

Taste wise, I generally tend to think yes. As for nutritional value, it's all dependent on how exactly the "fresh" juice is made. Most juices, whether from concentrate or not, juice the fruits, freeze them, and store them for long periods of time. When they're reconstituted into "fresh" juice, the flavour remains, but the nutritional value is diminished.

No, concentrated lemon juice is about four times as concentrated as regular lemon juice. Therefore one teaspoon of fresh lemon juice is equivalent to 1/4 teaspoon of concentrated lemon juice.

No, but fruit juice made from concentrate is.

From concentrate means the orange juice is made up of a part of fresh squeezed oranges and then topped liberally with water to fill up the rest of the carton. Basically they remove the water and ship the remaining juice to another place where they add water back to it.

Based on fruit, and brand of juice exact answers may vary. Usually because fresh fruit is fresh while fruit juice is less fresh (usually from concentrate) the fresh fruits have more antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, but some juices might have the same contents. Also, grape juice for instance, the juice is usually made without the peel, which contain minerals, antioxidants, etc.Fiber

Fruit Juice is the liquid extracted directly from the fruit. Reconstituted Fruit Juice is made from concentrate (a fruit juice that has been subject to heat treatment to reduce the water content) by adding water to a small proportion of concentrate

The macronutrients, sugars, organic acids and other common components are the same in both fresh and from-concentrate juices. A major drawback of the concentration process is the removal of various micronutrients *not* accounted for on any Federal labeling law, as well as unknown numbers of flavor components lost in the heat of the extraction process. Nutritionists have discovered these more volatile compounds are often antioxidants and other healthful components of our diet. Compare a glass of not-from-concentrate orange juice or apple juice (e.g.- Martinelli's) and you will see what you are missing in the more processed versions, even if only in flavor.

Advantages: 1. Using fresh fruits and vegetables. 2. No need for preservatives. 3. Getting vitamins in a natural way. 4. Taste is far superior to bottled juice. 5. Being able to design your own juice/vegetable recipes. Disadvantages: 1. The mess (what to do with the pulp) 2. Storing enough fruit and vegetables to provide a large amount of juice 3. Cleaning the juicer 4. Fresh juice doesn't "keep" well in the refrigerator so it has to be made frequently.

Papaya juice can be made from fresh papayas. Use as blender or smoothie maker to make fresh fruit juice. I have a NutiBullet and find that to be the best blender for making papaya juice.

A concentrate is a form of a beverage (orange juice or whatever) which has had most of its water content removed, so that it is concentrated. You can then add water to the concentrate in order to obtain the normal, drinkable form of that beverage. The main advantage of a concentrate is that it is easier to transport and to store, since it weighs a lot less and takes up less room. In manufactured juice beverages it's quite common for the juice to be turned into a concentrate, shipped in that form, and then reconstituted at a different location before being bottled. In the US, beverages made this way are required to carry the "made from concentrate" label to distinguish them from juices made directly from fruit.

Here are the ingredients of a can of V8 Juice straight from the label: Tomato Juice from Concentrate (Water, Tomato Paste), Reconstituted Vegetable Juice Blend (Water and Concentrated Juices of Carrots, Celery, Beets, Parsley, Lettuce, Watercress, Spinach), Lemon Juice from Concentrate (Water, Lemon Juice Concentrate), Salt, Natural Flavoring, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Citric Acid. There isn't any packaged juice that will replace fresh natural juice straight from a mix of carrots, apples, celery and whatever else you choose to mix in your juicing beverage. Once juice is cooked above 118 degrees F or processed, as it is in Campbell's V8, the life giving nutritious enzymes are destroyed.

It is made from apples. The juice is extracted, pasteurised and evaporated. You can buy it at health food stores

Example: The worker made fresh orange juice, by squeezing a bright orange until the liquids filled the cup.

The top 4 ingredients in Starburst candy are: corn syrup, sugar, hydrogenated soybean oil, and fruit concentrate juice.

Tomatoes can be purchased as:fresh, wholein pre-made saladjuicesoup

It will tell you on the label. The type of packaging and the way the juice was processed will control whether an item is shelf-stable, requires freezing, or requires refrigeration.

Fresh juice is squeezed from the fruit and is then heat-treated to remove a large percentage of the water that it naturally contains. The resulting 'juice' is about six times more concentrated than it was when first squeezed. Juice is concentrated in this way because it is easier, and cheaper, to transport the resulting smaller volumes than it would be to ship the original volumes of liquid. Once the concentrate has arrived at its destination, water is added to return it to the original dilution.

Fruit juice can be made by putting fresh fruit into the blender or a smoothie maker and pressing all of the fruit out of it. Mango juice is good if you add a little water or milk to smooth it out.

Let's use a can of frozen orange juice concentrate as an analogy: The concentrated solution would be the orange juice in its "concentrate form". If you were to let that frozen orange juice melt without adding water, it would have a much thicker consistency that juice, and it would have a much stronger taste. When we add water to this solution, it becomes dilute because we have made the solution much milder, and more of a liquid.

White grape juice made from concentrate gives a pH of around 2 - 2.1. This would be more acidic than orange juice. someone please fix this. I tested it today in lab class, it seems a lot but the White Grape juice we had had a pH of about 2.

Coconut juice or milk can be made by crushing or blending fresh coconut with a little bit of water. Fruit juice is nothing more than fruit that has been pulverized to a liquid form.

Pink guava juice is made by squeezing the juice out of guava fruit. You can use the fruit itself in a blender and add a little bit of water but nothing else is needed to make fresh pink guava juice.

Fattening is a relative term. Since they concentrate the sugars of the fruit they're made from, they're higher in calories than the original fruit. The calorie content weighed against the nutritional value of real fruit juices (not drinks or cocktails that contain sugar) is not excessive if consumed in moderate amounts. However, fresh fruit contains the fiber that has been filtered out of fruit juice. If you eat plenty of fresh fruits, drinking the juice is not a dietary necessity. If you want to drink juice, the trick is to know the difference between 100% fruit juice and juice drinks; the calories may read the same on the label but the nutritional value is not the same. The drinks and cocktails have replaced some of the juice with non-nutritive sugar water. So, even with the same calories, the 100% juice provides more nutrition bang for the buck.
