Oran es are not the only ruit

YOU wOuld probably think tvnce about eating an orange that wasn't actually orange In fact, the best Florida sgueezing oranges have a slightly green tinge to them and are smaller than eating oranges Juice producers Tropicana sguee/e a mind boggling 58 million such oranges everyday and every single one of them has to be picked by hand The fruit is then JUICC‘d, gently pasteurised and sealed into cartons

Fortunately the consumer doesn't need to go through such a palaver to get a drink of JUICE’ and over twenty million people a day opt for Tropicana

At a recent Tropicana iurce tasting, The List tried Out their full range of nine chilled JUICOS from the ever popular original orange, complete With bits of frUit pulp, to the mom esoteric sangumello, made from Sicilian blood oranges Movmg away from citrus frUits, the apple Juice and the apple and cranberry mixture were also sampled The sanguinello came out tops for us It's the same coIOur as tomato Juice and has the same tartness as orange Juice but also boasts a SCrummy richness

Incidentally, another fact that emerged from the tasting was that a glass of Juice counted as one of the five portions of fruit and veg that the World Health Organisation recommends for a healthy diet It's also a lot less’ hassle than peeling spuds, shelling peas or plucking pomegranates especially since you don't have to pick all 58 million of those oranges yourself
