Mineral Analysis

Dilution of fruit juice solids with added sugar will result in declines in the concentration of inorganic constituents such as potassium, magnesium and phosphorous. For example, Figure 3 shows a histogram of the potassium contents of pure Florida orange juices. The arrows indicate how 10% and 20% dilution with sugar and water would affect the average sample on the distribution. A 20% addition pulls the average sample completely outside of the normal range.
