Fungicide in Orange Juice?

Postby Shadowgirlau » Sun Feb 19, 2012 7:16 am

I was reading the link below regarding the use of fungicide in orange juice and wondered if we have a similar problem here?
We seem to follow so much along the lines of what they do oversees that I wouldn't be surprised to find that even more of our foods thought to be safe were in fact not so safe after all.

These days I seldom buy fruit of vege instead eating only what I grow myself in season. A cool room is high on my list for this reason.

U.S. won't allow more fungicide in orange juice - FDA

Shall definitely look into this when I have more time.

It wouldn't surprise me Kathleen, I worked for the company that produced Mr Juicy years ago (early 80s) and the fruit they used for juicing was often mouldy and covered in blue. It would ooze out of the bins and the vinegar flies were in the zillions above them!!

I've never had processed orange juice since!

:D

I am not really surprised either now I think about it as my SIL used to work for a diary who also processed orange juice. Having seen what they did to the milk and how they used old mouldy oranges for the juice etc she won't use their milk and now juices her own fruit.

Only got to see how food is processed to make you realise you need to do it yourself. ;)
