Does the OJ separate when left standing?

If not, it may have been treated with an enzyme technology that puts the pulp back in and this is what is causing you problems.

Until a few years ago, I would drink a couple of quarts of orange juice from pulp-free frozen concentrate every day, then I started noticing those allergy symptoms, and investigated their production processes. They had recently introduced an enzyme technology to make pulp more water soluble. For years, it had been used to dispose of massive amounts of otherwise waste pulp by putting it into the "creamy" or "home style" pulpy juices, but then suddenly the relatively clear so-called pulp-free juice began leaving a residue on glasses, and resisting passage through filter paper, besides causing allergy symptoms. For several decades I have watched as traditionally safe foods have been altered, and have found that many people have developed allergic problems when their favorite foods were changed by new technologies.
The best bet is to juice your own fresh oranges if you can.
Otherwise, try and switch up brands - try the frozen concentrate even - and find the one you tolerate best.

OJ doesn't agree with me either. I drink milk, apple juice, eat grapes, sugar, honey and other fruit.

Try Marks & Spencers, their freshly squeezed OJ doesn't use enzymes. (Thanks to someone at Peatarian.com for checking).

That's awesome. Very hard to find in North America! Times like this I wish I lived in Florida!

What's the link with baking soda and OJ Jenn? Sodium-potassium I guess?
