OJ loses Vitamin C punch
Source: Arizona State University study
Orange juice loses much of its vitamin C zing the longer it sits in your refrigerator, new research suggests.
Over a period of 30 days, researchers periodically tested brands with screw-on caps, brands in milk-carton style containers, and orange juice made from frozen concentrate. At all points, the frozen variety had the most vitamin C, while the juice in the carton had the least.
But as the days passed, the level of the nutrient kept falling in all three brands. For example, orange juice made from a fresh batch of frozen concentrate has 65 milligrams of vitamin C per 165 gram serving. Researchers found that after two weeks this fell to 45 milligrams, and to 36 milligrams after four weeks.
