About this deal

Top of the OJ tree, and the most expensive, is the “freshly pressed” or “freshly squeezed”, in a plastic bottle and with a shelf life of a couple of weeks. It’s not the same as juice you’ve squeezed for yourself, though, as it will generally have been pasteurised, too. Not all juices promise that they are vegan – presumably down to the waxy coating on the fruit which can be made from shellac, an insect product – so you may wish to factor that in, too.

There was nothing unpleasant about Morrison’s juice, but it was lighter in colour compared to the rest, but still didn’t quite match up to Tropicana in terms of flavour. But Sainsbury’s juice tasted the closest to eating an actual orange, with a really fresh flavour and no synthetic aftertaste. It’s not unpleasant, but it’s a long way from the gentle, sweet fruitiness of the juice I made at home. According to an industry expert, “freshly squeezed refers to the proximity of the squeezing operation to bottling and the total shelf life of the product”.Freshly squeezed orange juice is best consumed the same day it was prepared but is safe to drink within 2-3 days. But sometimes I forget about it only to realize it’s been sitting in the back of the fridge for who knows how long. Over half the oranges grown commercially on the planet wind up being pressed for juice, and nine glasses out of 10 are drunk in Europe and the US.

A 150ml glass of breakfast juice (the amount that equates to one of your five a day) can cost anything from 11p to 46p, even before you venture into the heights of freshly squeezed. This is because orange juice oxidizes over time, which will cause microorganisms to infiltrate the juice. Aside from the unpleasant taste and odor, it is very unsafe to consume orange juice that’s gone bad. Upon drinking seven glasses of orange juice, there were just two we found delicious enough to ditch Tropicana for.Whilst we make every effort to ensure that the product information on our site is accurate, this information will occasionally change. This will be down in part to the higher acidity of the oranges used industrially for pressing, and also the mechanical process, which extracts more from the rind than my hand squeezer. Two of the six supermarket orange juices were, in mine and my dad’s opinion, better than Tropicana, while the other four fell back. Asda’s offering was very sharp and quite acidic, leaving behind that tingly feeling on your tongue you get when you eat too much pineapple. Based on my own (not scientific) experiment, a medium (200g) orange yields about 95ml of juice – plus the peels, which can be dried out on the radiator making the house smell gorgeous.

It had one of the lowest sugar contents at 13 per cent, and was the perfect accompaniment to some buttered toast in the morning. But have you been overpaying for it by opting for big name brands when most of the supermarket own tastes just as good in comparison?

Of the three main kinds of orange juice available, the cheapest is “from concentrate” – juice that has been concentrated by evaporating out the water with a combination of heat and low pressure.

Freshly squeezed orange juice has the shortest lifespan among them all, especially if it’s got pulp in it. I tasted my way through 16 of the from-concentrate and not-from-concentrate juices from the supermarket chiller cabinet to find out, with a “freshly squeezed” and a home squeezed to compare. I’ve had plenty of orange juice in my 24 years and have never really once stopped to be mindful of the flavour, mouthfeel or acidity of it. Yale University Press) it’s also probably a function of “flavour packs” – orange extract that is added back into orange juice after processing to make up for volatile flavours which have gone missing in action.We've added our healthier living icon to products which offer a clear nutritional or health benefit, to make it easier for you to make healthier choices. Tropicana was the baseline for this test - sweet, sugary and pretty delicious, though the taste is somewhat tainted when you double check the receipt.
