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 Station.

   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.
