PART 146_CANNED FRUIT JUICES--Table of Contents
Subpart B_Requirements for Specific Standardized Canned Fruit Juices and 
Sec.  146.120  Frozen concentrate for lemonade.

    (a) Frozen concentrate for lemonade is the frozen food prepared from 
one or both of the lemon juice ingredients specified in paragraph (b) of 
this section together with one or any mixture of safe and suitable 
nutritive carbohydrate sweeteners. The product contains not less than 
48.0 percent by weight of soluble solids taken as the sucrose value 
determined by refractometer and corrected for acidity prescribed in 
``Official Methods of Analysis of the Association of Official Analytical 
Chemists,'' 13th Ed. (1980), section 22.025, ``Frozen Concentrate for 
Lemonade (12),'' under the heading ``Soluble Solids by Refractometer--
Official First Action,'' which is incorporated by reference. Copies may 
be obtained from the AOAC INTERNATIONAL, 481 North Frederick Ave., suite 
500, Gaithersburg, MD 20877, or may be examined at the National Archives 
and Records Administration (NARA). For information on the availability 
of this material at NARA, call 202-741-6030, or go to: http://
locations.html When the product is diluted according to directions for 
making lemonade which shall appear on the label, the acidity of the 
lemonade, calculated as anhydrous citric acid, shall be not less than 
0.70 gram

per 100 milliliters, and the soluble solids, measured as described for 
the concentrate, shall be not less than 10.5 percent by weight.
    (b) The lemon juice ingredients referred to in paragraph (a) of this 
section are:
    (1) Lemon juice or frozen lemon juice or a mixture of these.
    (2) Concentrated lemon juice or frozen concentrated lemon juice or a 
mixture of these.

For the purposes of this section, lemon juice is the undiluted juice 
expressed from mature lemons of an acid variety; and concentrated lemon 
juice is lemon juice from which part of the water has been removed. In 
the preparation of the lemon juice ingredients, the lemon oil content 
may be adjusted by the addition of lemon oil or concentrated lemon oil 
in accordance with good manufacturing practice, and the lemon pulp in 
the juice as expressed may be left in the juice or may be separated. 
Lemon pulp that has been separated, which may have been preserved by 
freezing, may be added in preparing frozen concentrate for lemonade, 
provided that the amount of pulp added does not raise the proportion of 
pulp in the finished food to a level in excess of that which would be 
present by using lemon juice ingredients from which pulp has not been 
separated. The lemon juice ingredients may be treated by heat, either 
before or after the other ingredients are added, to reduce the enzymatic 
activity and the number of viable microorganisms.
    (c) Label declaration. Each of the ingredients used in the food 
shall be declared on the label as required by the applicable sections of 
parts 101 and 130 of this chapter.
