Fruit juice

Fruit Juice is the liquid extracted from fruit by pressing or macerating the flesh. Probably the most recognisable is orange juice, a breakfast table staple, which is extracted from oranges. Other popular juices include apple, pineapple and grape.

Most countries have a definition of purity to entitle the drink to be classified as a "fruit juice." Within the EU, name of a fruit or fruits used in conjunction with juice is only legally permitted to describe a product that is 100% fruit juice. 

Juices are widely available. Some may have been freeze- or spray-dried before being reconstituted; less commonly nowadays they may have been canned. However fresh juices are increasingly common


Juices can also be prepared at home, using juicing tools such as press or centrifuges.
