Orange juice is a popular juice beverage often used at breakfast time. This juice is high in vitamin C, folic acid, potassium and flavanoids, making it very nutritious. Some of the nutrious properties may be lost if the juice is heated or even frozen. Whenever possible drink it freshly squeezed.
Orange juice is available freshly squeezed (best), in concentrate and canned. It is often mixed with other juices or in cocktails, and can also be used to marinate meat.
Orange Juice is a liquid orange substance that comes from orange fruit when squeezed. When not filtered, fresh orange juice is pulpy when tasted.

Conserving and Storing
Store in cool, dry area.
* Discard all juice from cans that are leaking, rusting, bulging or severely dented.
* Pantry storage time shown is for best quality only — after that, the juice's texture, color or flavor may change, but in most cases, it will still be safe to consume if it has remained unopened and been stored properly.
* Freeze in airtight glass or plastic container and leave at least 1/2 inch headspace at the top, as juice will expand when frozen.
* Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
