Citrus juice sometimes taste more tart than is desirable for ready consumer acceptance. This is particularly true with grapefruit juice, a characteristically tart juice.

Sugar added to citrus juice not only represents additional processing cost, but also offers only a limited solution to the problem of improving the taste of citrus juice.
