Today, I’m sharing my experience with Simply Beverages™ Simply Orange® Low Acid and my own personal story of why this products speaks to me.
Simply Orange® Low Acid is a not-from-concentrate orange juice, with reduced acidity, resulting in a smooth, mild taste. My main reason for wanting to try this product was the low acidity factor.
When I was 18, I found that I was experiencing a sensitive and often upset stomach and esophagus. Based on my research I found a long list of foods that many people with my sensitivities often avoid. These foods included many of my favorites, including coffee, orange juice, tomatoes and chocolate. I remember being completely devastated when I read through the food list.
For several years, I avoided this long list of foods. I didn’t drink orange juice for 3 years! It worked for a while and then my sensitivities started again. So I started by changing around my diet and lifestyle. I started exercising daily, eating healthier. And for several years now, I’ve been able to introduce acidic foods back into my diet–as long as it’s in moderation. My sensitive stomach is not completely gone and sometimes it’ll flare up again. But for the most part, I have it under control.
(Here are some of my current favorite healthy lunch options, including avocado on wheat toast, pesto with spaghetti squash, grilled teriyaki salmon, sesame cucumber salad, cauliflower muffins and fresh fruit to end my meals.)
Because of my sensitivity to acidic foods though, I am always on the lookout for products with reduced acid, which is why Simply Orange® Low Acid spoke to me. There are not many low acid orange juice products on the market. I’m already a fan of Simply Beverages™. I love that their juices are never-from-concentrate, and contain no preservatives, colors or artificial flavors.
Sipping on this juice, I could immediately taste the difference. It tastes like fresh squeezed orange juice but with less bite to it because of the reduced acidity. It goes down a lot smoother and I was able to drink a small glass with my lunch and another small glass with dinner without any issues. Of course, each individual will react differently, so I can’t guarantee the same results for someone else. But if you have sensitivity to acidic foods, this may be a way to keep orange juice in your life. And even if you don’t have any issues with orange juice, this is still a great option because it is low in acid and smoother than regular orange juice!

At the end of her life, my grandma suddenly had trouble drinking orange juice which was her favorite way to start the day ever since I was little. I an happy to see this as an option because she passed her OJ love to me!

I usually can’t drink a full glass of OJ and I’m sure it’s because of the acid content. I would love to try this because it might be the reason and help me.

Orange juice is my favorite breakfast drink. It goes perfectly with scrambled eggs and sausage and fresh fruit! I love the sourness of it. I’d be interested in trying the less acidic one.

I want to try this because I’ve had other Simply juices before and they are always delicious!!! 🙂
I get reflux from too much citrus, this sounds promising
I’m down for trying a low-acid version of orange juice. For some reason the bottled stuff always tastes artificial to me and seems more acidic to begin with…maybe it’s the rinds.
‘No-Flux” OJ? Welcome back juice!

I haven’t had plain orange juice in the longest time because it’s so harsh on my teeth. I’d be very curious to try this out.
Both me and my husband would benefit from low acid simply orange. I like low sugar drinks like simply orange and my husband has difficulty with acidic foods. . Thanks for the heads up on this product.
This is so cool! I’m interested in this low acidity juice because I also have a sensitive stomach.
My husband and I would love to try the low acid simply oranges because I like to drink juice with less sugar and my husband likes foods and drinks easier on his stomach. Thanks for your heads up on this new juice.
You said to leave a comment in response to the sweepstakes prompt, but I’m not sure if you mean there is an actual part of the text we’re supposed to look for (like a link) or just in response to your prompting us. 🙂 Anyway, even without a sweepstakes I would be responding because I’ve had the same issues with indigestion/sensitive stomach as you. The main problems were about 12 years ago (turned out to be job stress; that went away when I left the job). But even though I’m generally fine now, the sensitivity comes back a little more quickly than usual when I’m stressed. A low-acid juice sounds like something I’d want to try.
I also have sensitivity to foods with high acid content. Simply Orange low-acid sounds perfect for me.
I would love to try Simply Orange Low Acid because sometimes regular OJ upsets my stomach, and I love to drink it. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

Wow, I bet that would make great mimosa’s!!!
Would love to Simply Orange low acid. I usually don’t drink orange juice although I love it because of the high acid which sometimes leads to heartburn. Thanks so much for the chance to win!!!
Growing up, I had terrible stomach pains all the time. It was a while before I realized it was high acidity, but when I did.. fruit was the first to get cut back (dramatically). I know to limit myself now, and OJ was sadly one of those favorites to go. Glad to see something on the market that I can finally enjoy!
My husband has a sensitive stomach, but loves OJ. I think it would be great for him to be able to try and hopefully enjoy OJ again.
I can feel it in my stomach when I eat too many acidic foods or drink too much (regular) orange juice. I’d love to see if this OJ makes a difference!
I do enough damage to my teeth before my OJ…that’s my biggest concern
I have a sensitive stomach and would lot be able to drink orange juice again
This sounds interesting because I tend to get heartburn from acidic fruits.
