I don't exactly understand what "juice from concentrate" is. Can someone explain it to me? Is it really that bad to drink it, and why?

I'm not so sure canned, bottled, concentrate, or whatever juice is "bad" for a person but for sure fresh, raw juice that is natural and unprocessed is better for a person in my opinion

Okay, thanks. I'm just wondering because my mom gave me a container of Lakewood Pomegranate Juice and I'd hate for it to go to waste, so I figured I'll just drink it but then not buy it again. It doesn't have any preservatives or additives, the only thing unraw about it is that it's from concentrate. :( Oh well, what can ya do?

Juice is commonly concentrated with a piece of equipment known as a Thermally Accelerated Short-Time Evaporator, or TASTE for short. TASTE uses steam to heat the juice under vacuum and force water to be evaporated. Concentrated juice is discharged to a vacuum flash cooler, which reduces the product temperature to about 55.4° F (13° C). The pulp is separated from the juice by ultra-filtration and pasteurized. The clarified juice containing the volatile flavorings is concentrated at 50° F (10° C) by reverse osmosis and the concentrate and the pulp are recombined to produce the appropriate juice concentration. Juice concentrate is then stored in refrigerated stainless steel bulk tanks until is ready to be packaged or reconstituted.
Does not sound very fresh to me.
