History of National Orange Juice Day
National Orange Juice Day is a day dedicated to honoring the wonders of orange juice, a juice so delicious that it has become one of the most popular juices in America.
There are many different types of orange juice based on different types of oranges, but the most popular orange juice today is made from sweet oranges. Mandarin oranges and clementine are also commonly used, especially to make carbonated beverages.
Depending on the manufacturing process, orange juice is labeled in different ways. The most common type of orange juice available is frozen concentrated orange juice.

Reconstituted juice is juice made by adding water to this frozen concentrate.

Freshly squeezed orange juice, as the name suggests, is squeezed from the fruit and has not been pasteurized or processed in any way. It has an even shorter shelf life, but the most flavor and vitamins of all the different orange juices.
