    You have asked why "Sunny d (Delight)" contain the most amount of vitamin C. YOU ARE TRUE and it is true.


    GO ON WITH YOUR experiment and take these arguments in account which I am mentioning below

    Later, I will add SOME SITES that will help you to gather some consistant information about the thesis work.

    The answer is because it is a drink consisting of a few cytric fruit. This drink is made of





    ----> black currant ( in UK)

    JUST click to see ingredients AND CONFIRMATION


    Amount of Vit C has been maximised NATURALLY and no artificial ADDING at all


    READ the extracts to get familiar with..................

    Sunny Delight Fact Sheet



    Water, High Fructose, Corn Syrup and 2% or Less of Each of the Following: Concentrated Juices (Orange, Tangerine, Apple, Lime, Grapefruit). Citric Acid, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Beta-Carotene, Thiamin Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), Natural Flavors, Food Starch-Modified, Canola Oil, Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, Sodium Benzoate To Protect Flavor, Yellow #5, Yellow #6



    Sunny Delight: Produced an estimated $450 million in revenue for Procter & Gamble last year, said Gary Hemphill, senior vice president of Beverage Marketing Corp., an industry consulting and marketing firm. One-hundred-percent orange juice had sales of between $3.7 billion and $6.7 billion, according to various calculations. Sunny Delight is manufactured in Indiana, California and Atlanta.



    Procter and Gamble: Established in 1837, The Procter & Gamble Company began as a small, family operated soap and candle company in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Today, P&G markets more than 250 products to more than five billion consumers in 130 countries. ( extract from web site)





    So, naturally the amount of Vitamin is increased than found in a single citric fruit, for example in LEMON or ORANGE individually.

    You also need to see the additive (vit C) ingredient of this drink.

    For example it is added with natural ascorbic acid (vit C). So, the dose of VITAMIN C is really maximised.

    Important here to note that ,it has been not done artificially but naturally. ( also by mixing more than a few citric fruit makes it more valuable in Vitamin C)

    Beside these mentioned above, the other contents are as follows

    1. Beta-Carotene, ( naturally from carrot)

    2. Thiamin Hydrochloride ...

    3. fructode and glucose syrop

    One hypothesis is:

    Different varieties of oranges contain different amount of vitamin C.

    You did not really that Sunny D has the most vitamin C. Why make up one hypothesis after you know the fact?

    I don't agree with your method of research here (it's a bit of a cheat) but i'd say the answer is that during manufacture those great people at the Sunny D factory added a load of Vitamin C artificially.
