Statement From the Juice Products Association

The techniques used to bring oranges from the grove to the container you purchase in the store are in place to ensure your safety. Once harvested, oranges are squeezed in a process that is similar to that of a home juicer. The juice may be flash pasteurized (heated very quickly and cooled down quickly) to sterilize the juice and preserve the fruit’s naturally occurring vitamins and phytonutrients. This juice may be made into concentrate by removing the water (water is added back at the time of bottle filling or added by the customer after purchase). As oranges are only harvested for a limited period of time (November-June), this process allows for juice to be stored and available to enjoy year round.

They found that for 85% of people in that study, lifestyle interventions that triggered weight loss and increased physical activity reduced potential cardiovascular problems. Such lifestyle interventions also help reduce the risks for diabetes, dementia and some cancers and strengthen the immune system.
