I love high pulp orange juice and normally I buy it, but with the cost of almost $4.00 for a half gallon I thought I might try it myself and control the amount of pulp plus, by making my own I can guarantee that there are no hidden ingredients like sugar of chemicals in my orange juice.
Did you know:
The pulp of an orange contains flavonoids which are currently still being studied but are thought to help prevent cancer, cardiovascular diseases and hold antinflamatory and anti allergy properties? Its still an ongoing study and started with a scientist named Linus Pauling. Linus Paulling also stated that Vitamin C could be one of the leading cures in heart disease. When I read more on this, I will post about it. My mother had heart disease and it eventually lead to her death, I wish I had known about the link between vitamin C deficiency and heart disease then.
Higher pulp orange juice contains higher calcium and is an advantage, particularly to older women, or those with lactose intolerance especially in minimizing osteoporosis. Differing opinions regarding health benefits of Vitamin C 100% RDA should perhaps be given credence, the opinion of expert opinion with Linus Pauling's credentials cannot be ignored. Higher carbohydrate content may be significant in overall calorie intake either desirable during high intensity training or undesirable if you are following a low carb diet. Shall we get on to the fun part and make some OJ?
