    I understand that not-from-concentrate that doesn't use pulp dissolving enzymes should separate when left to sit for a couple of hours. What about reconstituted orange juice from frozen concentrate? Is reconstituted orange juice from frozen concentrate that doesn't separate when left to sit over time likely to have been processed with pulp dissolving enzymes?

    I'm pretty sure FCOJ does not contain any pulp ever.

    I read the following by RP:
    "Until 2006 I was using mostly frozen pulp-free concentrate, then they introduced the enzyme process (for disposing of waste fiber, making it stay suspended in the juice), affecting even the 'pulp-free' type."

    He later said:
    "All the major companies now say that they aren't using the pulp-melting enzymes; I think they were afraid of getting sued."

    I wanted to experiment with the frozen concentrate product I'm using, so I ran it through a coffee filter, but almost nothing fell through the filter. So I'm wondering if there's fiber suspended in the juice. I'm letting it sit still for a few hours to see if it separates.
