The only orange juice is fresh-made orange juice. Settle for nothing less!

When one thinks of fresh-made juice, or juice period, it is likely that a picture of orange juice evokes in mind. Indeed, this juice owes its classicness to its high juice content, making it easy to juice, even before the age of the electric juice extractor. However, store-bought orange juice is not even in the same ball-park as freshly-juiced orange juice, it is essentially a whole other entity!

Store-bought juice goes through numerous processes, including heating and pasteurization. This kills off a great deal of the nutrients, especially heat-sensitive antioxidants. The result is orange-flavored sugar water that's on par with soda for it's lack of health benefits. Ok, enough of my waffling about poor quality juice!


A number of studies show that drinking 100% orange juice regularly is beneficial to heart health. It helps lower high blood pressure levels, promotes arterial health and reduces the incidence of heart attacks. Orange juice, as well as juice from other citrus fruits, are also known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties too. These benefits for health are attributed to the high-quantities of flavonoid antioxidants and vitamin C levels in this juice fruits; plus the many other essential and beneficial nutrients it contains.

Juicing Tips

To get the best from our orange juice we want to avoid juicing the peel! Not just nasty to the taste buds, orange peel contains oils that can cause stomach upsets. That said we want to take advantage of all the white pithy stuff that surrounds, and is found at the center of the orange. This white pith is ultra-loaded with flavonoids and can greatly enhance the level of antioxidants in our juice. A masticating juicer will juice the white pith very effectively, but you will get some benefit from a centrifugal juicer too.

Note - all these recipes will assume you have peeled your oranges.
