    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.

    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!

    Actually most fresh oranges come from CA, most FL oranges end up in juice. ;) I think TX is mostly fresh oranges as well.

    Are you getting enough baking soda?

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