Abstract

This paper presents a comparative ecotoxicological study, performed on several orange juices sold in Romania and on a freshly orange juice prepared from the fruit. For each juice sample, quality parameters such as pH, carbohydrate content, dry matter and humidity were analyzed. The presence of the food additive ascorbic acid (vitamin C) was also studied. The obtained results revealed the similarities and differences between the natural juice and the studied commercial juices.
