Description

Different brands of organic juices and commercial juices were studied to determine the best juices to quantitatively compare. The juices chosen were determined by the brand, type of fruit, and ingredients that were similar for both the organic and commercial juices. Background information for each juice chosen was also studied to determine origin of fruit and variety of fruit used in each juice. A method for determining the ascorbic acid and citric acid concentrations in both juices will be measured using an HPLC (Weikle, Katie. 2012). By using known standards to construct trend lines of both acid concentrations, the measured values can be compared to the standard values to show the actual concentration in the juice.
