Get the best, freshest orange juice for your weekend breakfast.

Did you know that 95% of the orange juice in our supermarkets in made up from concentrate?

Most of this concentrate is imported from overseas. As well as putting the squeeze on local growers, imported concentrate can also contain chemicals which Australian farmers are prohibited from using (such as the fungicide carbendazim, which has been linked to cancer and infertility) .

If you're planning a café style weekend breakfast at home, the best place to look for orange juice is in the chiller section of your local fruit shop or grocery store.

Look in the chilled section for the freshest Australian orange juices


Some good ones to look out for include;

Curlwaa Fresh Orange Juice,
The Market Grower (TMG),
Sunzest Organic,
Original Juice Black Label Orange Juice,
Nudie's Nothing but 21 Oranges,
Berri Australian Grown and
Nippy's orange juices.

Of course, if you or your friends have fruit trees, or access to a farmer's market or good green grocer, it is worth buying a bag and making your own. If you hurry you can catch the end of Valencia season, before the Navels start to ripen in May. Note that any Navel oranges currently in the shops have more than likely been imported. Blood oranges are available at the beginning of winter through spring, when the Valencias will start ripening again.

So the only question that remains is whether to be pulpy or pulp-free?
