100% Tropicana Orange Juice is STILL artificial. The once fresh orange juice goes through a long gruesome process to suck any natural parts of it out. Once the juice is stored and squeezed, oxygen is then removed which allows the juice to stay “fresh” for a year.  The natural flavors are removed and infused with artificial orange flavors.
