    How do the Canadians around here take their orange juice? We have different brands up here and our produce is pretty low quality.

    1. Is home made fresh squeezed orange juice the best bang for your buck nutrition wise? If so, what tool do you use to squeeze the juice out with? What kinds of oranges are best?

    2. Is orange juice from concentrate better then nothing? If so, whats brands do you like?

    Orange juice in Canada is mostly sour, even from fresh pressed oranges. If it's not sweet it's not worth it in my opinion.
    Get good quality concentrate, without enzymes or additives (Orange juices with/without flavor packs and pulp-dissolving enzymes - Toxinless)
    and go with it. Oasis organic would be ok it seems.

    Here in Quebec, we've had some very sweet, high quality apple juice for the past couple of years. I've done better with that. The only time I do well with fresh oranges here is during high summer.

    Sharing this for those who haven't seen it.

    Orange juices with/without flavor packs and pulp-dissolving enzymes - Toxinless

    Site is ran by a guy on this board.

    You may find a good option from that list or at least it may point you in the right direction.

    I can't comment on concentrate oj. I don't have any experience nor have I read anything by Ray Peat on it.

    I buy a bag of oranges and try to squeeze a few every now and again.

    All the best in your search.

    I drank Oasis, which seemed better then the rest. The rest were intolerable, really poor stuff. I found a good quality OJ at the Co-op, a big grocer in Western Canada. Oasis is good enough imo, try tapping into your local markets.

    I regularly drink Presidents choice organic not from concentrate pulp free. Grocery stores do fresh squuezed in house, sobeys, zehres, whole foods. It is very good in summer, very sweet, i checked the brix aka sugar levels in the lab at work, 15 to 16 brix so 150 to 160 grams of sugar per litre.

    Is the PC organic > PC regular? The regular is decently sweet, but I'm sure it could be improved upon. I'll try Oasis as per @rebuke

    The best orange juice I have found is called Natalie’s OJ from Florida. Tasty but a little on the expensive side.... The PC Organic orange juice is also a good alternative imo but it’s expensive.

    Tbh now I’ve become accustomed to the pulp free orange juice from Irresistables (metro and food basics sell it). If I could afford it though, it would be freshly squeezed or Natalie’s all the way.

    Thanks for creating this thread OP as I’ve always wondered what Canadians are drinking. I’ve heard Kirkland (Costco) brand is good but never been able to find it at Costco....
