# Can we Tell if the Juice is Fresh-Squeezed

Hi All,
Just wanted to know if there is an effective way of deciding if a juice is fresh-squeezed or not.
I just plopped $3.50 for orange juice that was(allegedly) fresh-squeezed. Now I have had, even recently, plenty of fresh-squeezed juice, which I love. But this juice tasted differently, with a bitter after-taste. Now, the oranges used in this last juice may be different from the ones used to make the fresh juice I usually have, or there may be some other factors affecting the flavor of the juice. Is there something found in fresh-squeezed juice not found in your generic supermarket Tropicana juice (or the other way around)? Maybe some enzymes that may die during transportation? Thanks.

Even if I was richer, I don't want to be stupid-enough to pay that much for 1/10 of a carton that costs around \$4.
