What is the meaning of reconstituted juice?

  • What is the meaning of reconstituted juice? gpuguy

    The following is written on a packet of Juice by a renowned company:

    ingredients: water,  red grape juice concentrate 24.7 % * 
    *reconstituted 100% grape juice 

    1- What is the meaning of reconstituted (100%) grape juice?

    2- What is the meaning of juice concentrate 24.7%? Does that mean it is having only 24.7% original juice and rest added water?

    3- How much diluted is this juice

    Kindly help me understand.


    My main concern is: are they cheating me because they call it 100% Juice?

  • What they mean is that they took some grape juice and concentrated it by evaporating some of the water contained in it (a concentrate is juice in which the sugar content is increased at least of 50%).

    This is good for producers because concentrated juice has a lower volume, is easier/cheaper to stock/transport etc. When they bottle the juice, they then reconstitute it by re-adding the water to the concentrated juice.

    24.7% means they originally removed 75.3% of the water to make the concentrate. Because they added it back, at the end you are back with reconstituted 100% juice.

    EDIT: fruit juices are regulated by the Codex general standard for fruit juices and nectars (PDF) which lists the minimum Brix Level (=sugar content) for various juices. Reconstituted juices must oblige to these minimum standards, although local laws may vary.

This wasn’t at all what I expected. Just to give you some background: due to relatives who live in the country, my family always had a decent supply of rabbit meat. Until say five years ago we had... the latter very much, while I absolutely love the former. What I want to know: How does this substitution work? How far does it go (is it limited to braised food)? Is it reversible? What chicken

  • buttery for me. My recipe was something along the lines of: 1/2 cup butter 3 oz chocolate 2 cup sugar 350ml evaporated milk Basically melt butter & chocolate, add sugar and milk and reduce to desired consistency. But like I said, although it works, it is way too buttery. I would love to figure out a recipe that would allow me to do make something of a similar consistency, but with dairy free w/ dark chocolate (ie: no milk/butter). But I am not sure what gives the sauce the taffy consistency vs. freezing up. I immediately discounted any recipes that I saw which were water based due

  • water to submerge the carrots * put a small pat of butter on the top of each piece of chicken So you can see why it's like a stew or a roast but not quite either of them. What is it? .... It's in the crockpot where it should be ready in about three hours. It's not braised chicken, because I did start without the pre-cooking that "braising" implies. I'd be inclined to call it a roast but it's being done very slowly. So, of curiosity, what would be the best term for it? Here's what I did: * wash/scrub and trim four large carrots * eat two tangerines, washing the rinds
