Who Is Natalie?
Natalie is the oldest daughter of Marygrace Sexton, who created Natalie’s Orchard Island Juice Company.
The wife of a fourth-generation Florida citrus grower, Marygrace dreamed of producing fresh-squeezed, minimally processed juice for store purchase. Because, unless she could purchase it from a roadside stand, she had to squeeze her own juice at home.
That was more than 30 years ago. Now carried by the best food stores in the U.S., Natalie’s is a boon to all of us who don’t want to “squeeze our own.”

You’ll never look at a bottle of lemonade the same way again!
There are actually two lemonade day celebrations.
Lemonade Day is May 1st this year† (it’s the first Sunday in May). It was started by a not-for-profit that promotes entrepreneurialism in kids.
The program helps communities of need introduce children to entrepreneurship through starting their own lemonade stands.
National Lemonade Day on August 20th can also be an opportunity to get kids to set up a lemonade stand. But for those of us without young’uns, it’s an opportunity to enjoy a cold, refreshing, sweet-and-tangy glass of lemonade.
*Pasteurization is the process of heat-processing liquid or food to kill bacteria that may be harmful to people if they consume it—think salmonella, listeria, shigella, e. coli, etc. cold-pressed (a method that uses a hydraulic press to extract juice and gives juice a longer shelf life than There is a risk to drinking raw/unpasteurized juices that have never been cooked, heated, or steamed). The nutrients are the same whether the juice is pasteurized or unpasteurized [source].
There are two main types of pasteurization for juices: heat pasteurization and high-pressure pasteurization (HPP), which uses high pressure instead of heat to kill microbes. Heat pasteurization is less expensive and thus most common, but can create a change in flavor that is why most store-bought juices taste different from freshly squeezed juices. The more costly HPP gives juices a more fresh flavor.
