Biggest drink of orange juice - world
record set by Palagiano
PALAGIANO, Taranto, Italy -- During the Festival
of the Mandarin, more than 100 helpers crushed more than 5,000
lbs of oranges to produce 697 litres of juice-setting the
new world record for the Biggest
drink of orange juice.
One organiser told the Austrian Times:
"We had 5,000 spectators who all got a glass of very freshly
squeezed orange juice when we'd finished."
The mayor of Palagiano, Mr. Rocco Ressa
and other 24 jury members had supervised the world record
attempt for the Biggest
drink of orange juice .
For the occasion it has been prepared
a long theater box 200 meters in tree-lined avenue of the
The juice has been acquired from the spectators,
approximately 5,000 that they have offered to a contribution
in favour of the national Association tumors.
Orange juice is a popular breakfast beverage
made from the extraction (squeezing) of liquid from fresh
oranges. The term "orange juice" is also used, both colloquially
and commercially, to refer to "concentrated orange juice".
In the USA all commercial orange juice is
pasteurized. "Freshly squeezed" juice is unpasteurised and
has a shorter life than pasteurised juice, but is considered
better quality. Refrigerated juice shipped in liquid form
is traded between producers as direct juice.
Orange juice is a source of vitamin C (ascorbic
acid), potassium, thiamin, Phosphorus G, folic acid (Vitamin
B9) and vitamin B6. One 8-ounce glass of
100 percent orange juice counts as almost 25 percent of the
USDA-recommended daily fruit and vegetable servings, based
on a 2,000-calorie diet.
Research shows orange juice is more nutrient
dense than many commonly consumed 100 percent fruit juices,
such as apple, grape, pineapple and prune.
