Preparation and Use

Before juicing the grapefruit, keep it at room temperature for a few minutes then roll it on the counter. This will soften the insides and release more juices. Then, cut the fruit in half. Using a wooden juicer (or a fork), push it into the flesh and twist it around until all the juice has been released.

There was a study however that drinking a glass of grapefruit juice increased the potency of a drug for blood transparency.

Conserving and Storing

Store inside the fridge


Grape juice, because of its non-alcoholic content, is commonly used by Christian denominations (such as Baptists and Methodists who oppose the partaking of alcoholic beverages, as the "cup" or "wine" in the Lord's Supper.

Although alcohol is permitted in Judaism, grape juice is sometimes used as an alternative for kiddush on Shabbat and Jewish holidays and it has the same blessing as wine. However, many authorities maintain that grape juice must be capable of turning into wine naturally in order to be used for kiddush. Common practice, however, is to use any grape juice for kiddush.
