Gregory Ziemak Lesson 13 Part 2 Orange juice from freshly squeezed oranges or made from concentrate? In my opinion OJ from concentrate is the most efficient way for long term sustainability for freezing concentrate is far less expensive than shipping the fruit. However it can be argued that freshly squeezed OJ would be the best option because of the energy used in freezing concentrate. It is important to consider where the oranges are coming from for transportation can be expensive with gas at such a high rate. It is also important to consider how the oranges are grown and how they are picked. In regards to the LCA I would start once the oranges have been picked for this is most logical. Once picked (whether California, Florida, etc.) they would be brought to the plant and packed and shipped to the stores or squeezed, concentrated and then shipped to store. Fresh Squeezed: Energy to pick orange Energy to produce container for juice Energy used keep juice cool Energy used in making boxes for transportation
