This is just a piece of follow-up about Sarah’s orange juice.

I suspected the orange juice might be a little too acidic for her because sometimes she’s complaining having stomach ache after drinking it (but the pain will go away within minute). When I asked if she wanted to pass motion, she just says “no”.

It might be the oranges that upset her stomach; but all these while I have no idea on how to choose a sweet orange until HweiLi given me the tip – buy those oranges which labeled 4013.

And I am lucky that I was able to find them at Carrefour the other day and without hesitation, I bought two dozen home (for myself as well).

After trying it, I can concluded that 4013 is really sweeter than those I’ve bought before and also it has more juice. I was able to squeeze 150ml of juice (by using three oranges) compared to only 75ml previously.

Thanks to HweiLi, I’m now has no worries in feeding Sarah oranges anymore.

Yes, 4013 and 3017 are sweeter. Normally 4014 is for juicing as the shop would add sugar.

I found that the Valencia oranges from tesco and giant are not bad too. Not that sour.

else you can also buy the kangaroo brand

You are welcome :) You found it so easily! I usually have problems looking for 4013 oranges in the hypermarkets. I get mine from the pasar malam. Actually I got this tip from a fruit vendor at the pasar malam many, many years ago. He told me that it's not the brand but the "species" that determines the sweetness or sourness of an orange.

Hope Sarah likes this sweet orange juice and it won't upset her stomach anymore! :)
