Generic name: Orange juice.
Can you make it? Yes, you can squeeze juice at home.
No. Many orange juices use gelatin and lanolin to thicken, shellfish to help clarify them, and fish oil to add nutrients.
Due to possibly containing shellfish, most would consider it haram.
No obvious ones, but animal products and the contents of flavour packs (see below) present serious consumer rights issues.
Juices are very highly processed. We all know concentrated juices are processed, but it goes further.
CBC Marketplace found that even “not from concentrate” “100% orange juice” is pasteurized and stored so long it doesn’t have flavour left. So the flavour is added back with “flavour packs”. What’s in them? Are they healthy? Are they vegan, halal, ethical? It’s hard to tell.
Are there store brands?
There are many store brands, but they aren’t much different.
