Full Answer

The first process is called concentration. This involves using heat to evaporate water from the raw squeezed fruit juice. Hence, fruit juices that have been produced in this way are very often labeled as "made from concentrate," or something else to that effect. These juices will also be pasteurized for longevity.

Some other terms that might be found on fruit juices include:

  • Not from concentrate - pasteurized after squeezing
  • Pure juice 100 percent - not from concentrate or pasteurized
  • Juice drink - made with a low juice content of around 10-20 percent

    Can I substitute lemon juice for lemon extract?

    Lemon juice cannot be substituted for lemon extract because the flavor is not as strong. Most recipes that use lemon extract call for only a teaspoon or two, and a teaspoon of lemon juice will add little to no flavor.
