tuore (“fresh”) + mehu (“juice”), originally introduced as trade name for natural fruit juices.
- IPA(key): /ˈtuo̯reˣˌmehu/, [ˈt̪uo̞̯re̞mˌme̞ɦu]
- Rhymes: -ehu
- Syllabification: tuo‧re‧me‧hu
- A natural or close-to-natural fruit or vegetable juice, especially orange juice.
- (law) A juice produced by mechanical means from fruit or vegetables (täysmehu) that has not been treated with heat (e.g. by pasteurizing). A product called tuoremehu may contain up to 150 grams added sugar per liter of juice.
- In common speech, tuoremehu and täysmehu are practically synonymous, although they are defined as different products in so called mehuasetus (“juice decree”).
- As orange is the original and still dominant source of commercially sold juice, many associate the word primarily with orange juice.
