Just remember we are using the "de" because here "naranja" is being used as a noun, not an adjective. We want the juice because it is made of oranges, not because it is orange.

Just in case you're wondering why, it's because oranges are a cross bred fruit that was first developed in China. So it's kind of like Canadian Bacon or French Fries. Though I guess the fries were introduced to US by French speaking Belgians :-)

Thanks for the explanation, I didn't know that. What I do know as a Belgian is that fries are indeed Belgian :-P But apparently the way they are cut is called "french"

    Yeah, because it's the juice of an orange, not an orange-colored juice.

    I don't understand, this doesn't make sense. And each time I see this the answer changes.
