not from concentrate orange juice

back in 70s on east coast tropicana oj was great, maybe a little sweet. not from concentrate oj has been available on west coast for many years but its not as good. i just heard this oj is pasteurized and can be held in giant stainless steel tanks with no oxygen for over a year. "flavor packets" are added to keep it from just tasting like sugar water. i was hoping for a healthier drink, will be switching back to frozen concentrate.

  1. I don't know if you live in an area graced by the Trader Joe's chain on mini-supermarkets, but they sell a wonderful OJ that is not from concentrate and not pasteurized. By far, it is the closest I have found in a market to fresh squeezed.

    1. really? !

      ETA: I was going to ask for the link but I just saw the other thread below. thanks.
