TESTING OF FRUIT JUICE WATER
Freshly squeezed fruit juice is a speciality product,
which commands a higher status and price than juice made from concentrate. The vast majority of fruit
juices are made from concentrate for economic and technical reasons. This involves removal of the water
from the fruit juice, to give fruit concentrate, prior to shipment from the region of origin. On arrival
in the consumer region the fruit concentrate is diluted with local water to its original strength and
distributed for consumption. The fraudulent sale of juice made from concentrate as freshly squeezed for
economic gain can easily be detected by isotope analysis of the juice water.
