Dear 100 Hour Board,

I know fresh-squeezed is better, but Orange Juice from Concentrate is still healthy for you, isn't it?

A: Dear Minute Butler,

Well, yes, of course it's still good for you. To make orange juice concentrate, they put the orange juice in an evaporator which uses vacuum and heat to remove water, and the heat may break down some heat-sensitive enzymes. And orange juice from concentrate generally has less vitamin C than fresh orange juice. But it still has plenty of vitamin C. Besides, it's still orange juice, even if there are slightly less vitamins and minerals. And it's much better for you than, say, orange Kool-Aid...
