    Is anyone else cynical about the freshly squeezed orange juice you buy in the shops? If it really is freshly squeezed like they say, then why does it taste so different to when you actually make fresh orange juice at home?

    Because there is a preservative added to it to make it last.

    I doubt it is actually freshly squeezed, though maybe freshly squeezed orange juice from cafes is actually freshly squeezed ...hmm

    The supermarkets lie!

    I bought a bottle of 'freshly squeezed apple juice' from Lidl the other day. I doubt it's ever seen an apple in its life, the way it tasted. :sad:

    Perhaps, when it says its freshly squeezed, it means that it is squeezed when it is ripe?

    How do you squeeze an apple, anyway? I would've been wary when they said "freshly squeezed apple juice', haha.

    It can't really be 'freshly squeezed', although I imagine it depends on how you define 'fresh'

    What do you think they do, squeeze it right there in the shop? :|

    Essentially,
    Freshly squeezed = oranges juiced, bottled and shipped out
    Not from concentrate = oranges juiced, pasteurised (heated then cooled), bottled and shipped out
    From concentrate = basically reconstituted watered down sugary crap

    So it's 'fresh', depending on how you define it.
