Top Five Orange Juice Brands

published by Pearl Wilson on Apr 5, 2011

The Good Housekeeping Research Institute has tested 12 different brands of orange juice and listed below are the top five orange juice brands.

Without doubt, orange juice is one of the most well-liked beverages in any community. It is delicious, refreshing, healthy and suitable for people young and old, even babies. The demand for orange juice is great, with USA alone consuming 1.6 billion gallons on average every year. The best quality orange juice definitely is that juiced from fresh oranges at home. Given that most people are too busy to prepare fresh orange juice on their own, turning to a good orange juice brand is a solution. The Good Housekeeping Research Institute has tested 12 different brands of orange juice and listed below are the top five orange juice brands.    

           

1.          Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company Gourmet Pasteurized Orange Juice

Priced at $6 for 64 fl. Oz, Gourmet Pasteurized Orange Juice outscored its competitors with its “fresh-squeezed” taste and “just the right amount of pulp.” One participant even wrote that it “tastes like a real orange”. This brand contains 100 percent Florida orange juice squeezed, pasteurized and shipped, without being frozen or stored. This juice provides 110 calories per 8 oz. serving.

2.     Florida’s Natural Premium Home Squeezed Orange Juice

Priced at $3 for 64 fl. Oz, this orange juice brand impressed the test participants with its “classic”and “pleasingly fresh-squeezed flavor”, though a couple of tasters noted a slight bitterness. This juice provides 110 calories per 8 oz. serving.

3.    Noble Organic Juice

Priced at $4.29 for 32 fl. Oz, Noble Organic Juice is favored by taste testers for its “floral” finish and smooth body. On the other hand, some found it a bit too sweet. This juice provides 120 calories per 8 oz. serving.  

4.     Simply Orange

Simply Orange costs $3.79 for 59 fl. oz. Test participants agreed on its pleasant balance of sweet and tart while some found it too thin and “a little metallic” tasting. The juice offers 110 calories per 8 oz. serving.

5.     Tropicana Pure Premium Some Pulp

This brand costs $3.49 for 64 fl. oz. Taste testers thought that the pulp level of this juice is ideal, but many disliked its slight acidity. One tester said it “tastes like it was made from concentrate” while it is not. This juice offers 110 calories per 8 oz. serving.

Orange juice is a good source of Vitamin C and food fiber. Whether it is breakfast or tea time, it is a much welcomed choice of beverage. Among the five orange juice brands recommended above, hopefully everyone would be able to locate one that suits your taste.

    A very helpful and informative post but I am surprised at the number of calories in a glass.

    Pulp, no pulp, calcium added or not, if it is orange juice I drink it and I do so on a daily basis. I love OJ!

    None of these are available on the market in the country where I live…but I have my own brand that I stick to…its natural orange…I squeeze it myself in the juicer. Guess I am sure that way that I am getting the 100 percent out of it.:)
