I never really thought about orange juice before. I buy the frozen concentrate stuff because it's what my family always bought, and it's cheap. But did you know that seemingly "fresh" bottled orange juice is heated, stripped of flavor, stored for up to a year, and then re-flavored before it is packaged and sold? Author Alissa Hamilton has written the Fast Food Nation of orange juice in her new book, Squeezed. Who knew that the orange juice business is such a cutthroat one? I guarantee that you will want to buy a juicer and some organic oranges after reading this fascinating book.
