Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Visual Analogue Scale of taste palatability [ Time Frame: At time when the subjects have finished drinking, an expected average of 10 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Tasters were first asked to drink the unaltered (0% POs-Ca) juice, to get familiar with the taste.

    After that they drank each of the 5 juices in a random order, and evaluated the taste by marking an analogue scale ranging from 0 to 100 which was printed horizontally on a sheet of paper.
