Does Orange Juice Contain Alcohol?

Orange juice does not contain alcohol. It is simply the juice of oranges. Some brands of bottled orange juice add calcium and vitamin D to the juice.

While orange juice has been viewed as a healthy beverage for many years, its healthfulness has recently been scrutinized. Commercial orange juice that is labeled as 100 percent juice is often highly processed. Orange oils and essences are extracted from the oranges and turned into flavor packs. The juice is also extracted, but by the time it is bottled, it may have been sitting for over a year. This flavorless juice is infused with the flavor packs to restore its taste.
