Get it fresh, unpasteurized when you can. Addicting!

I just bought a carton of Trader Joe’s tangerine juice for the first time, and could see the pulp had separated a bit so I shook the carton before opening. Unfortunately when I did open the carton it spewed out like a carbonated beverage. Half the juice bubbled up and went down the sink. Weirdest thing ever. I think there must be some serious bacterial action going on to build up that kind of pressure. I poured the rest out.

Because the juice is organic and freshly squeezed you must keep it in a cold refrigerator or it will ferment. I am truly addicted to this juice I buy at least four cartons a week.

Juices may look alike, but there is a big difference between pasteurized and unpasteurized juices. Pasteurized juices have been heated to high temperatures for a short time in order to kill any bacteria or other microorganisms that may be present.
When fruits and vegetables are made into fresh-squeezed juice, harmful bacteria may be present and become part of the finished product. Most juice in the United States is pasteurized to kill harmful bacteria. The remaining small percentage of juice sold is unpasteurized. Unpasteurized juice may contain harmful bacteria that could make some people sick.
To help consumers identify unpasteurized juice and cider, the Food and Drug Administration requires a warning on juice and cider. All unpasteurized or untreated juice product must contain the following warning on the label: WARNING: This product has not been pasteurized and therefore may contain harmful bacteria that can cause serious illness in children, the elderly and persons with weakened immune systems.
Drinking unpasteurized juices has led to serious outbreaks of foodborne illness. The warning information is to help consumers decide whether to buy unpasteurized juice.
Most people’s immune system can usually fight off the effects of foodborne illness. However, some groups of people are more likely to get sick from drinking unpasteurized juice. Children, the elderly and people who have significant health problems, or those whose immune systems are weakened, risk serious illness or even death if they drink juice, or cider contaminated with harmful bacteria.
Michigan State University Extension recommends that if you or someone in your family is in one of the high-risk groups and you cannot determine if a juice product has been processed to destroy harmful bacteria, either don’t use the product or bring it to a low boil to kill any possible harmful bacteria.
Also, in this “new version” of Trader Joe’s tangerine juice, all Vitamin C has been removed.

Hands down, best juice ever! It tastes just like fresh squeezed orange juice! I always get the pasteurized juice for safety reasons.
