Back about 30 years ago, the (old) Early Winters company had a freeze-dried orange juice product that was great for backpackers. It had orange pulp in it, rehydrated instantly, and had a flavor that was mistaken for fresh-squeezed. I haven't seen anything like that in the marketplace lately. Any leads?We are not talking about Tang or anything that artificial.--B.G.--
This site (http://www.truelemonstore.com/products/true_orange) has a product that is supposed to taste like fresh orange juice. I believe I've had their true lemon. What I had tasted quite a bit like a real lemon, freshly squeezed. Jim
Thanks. I'm going to have to sample some of that.Ingredients: Dextrose, Citric acid, Orange Juice, Orange Oil, Maltodextrin, Ascorbic Acid (Vitiman C). [sic)It doesn't sound very natural!--B.G.--

This topic intrigued me so I've been seeing if I could find a supplier. I did find one in the UK...http://www.guinness-p.com/html/freeze_dried_fruit_juice_powders.htmland one in North America...http://www.mastertaste.com/americas/technology/default.aspx?id=1427
Sadly, it is pretty natural..lol! Just 2 sugars added ;-)
I guess it is hard to find good orange pulp anymore.There is a marketing idea if anybody wants to chase it. Produce a freeze-dried orange juice product that easily rehydrates in cold water. Sell it in a package that mixes up one quart of juice. It should cost no more than $3-$4. Long shelf life.--B.G.--
