sorry dude but any posek in the world will tell you that pure juice doesnt need a hechsher. He doesnt know what hes talking about if he told you that cuz its not even a chumra.

i actually attended a lecture from the OU about why apple juice would need a hechsher
even though it is pure juice, it does not mean they just squeeze an apple and get juice
the juice is processed in a fairly complicated way, which involves concentrating the flavor, then remixing it back into the juice, and within the process, problems can arise if there is no mashgiach on top of it

unfortunately is was a few years ago, and i dont remember many of the details, but your comment that "Any Posek" would say its ok as pure BS

everyone has a different upbringing, and hold of different levels of kashrus, but there are certainly issues with pure juice
as to whether you worry about those issues is up to each individual

Mein Tayere jewda, this Rabbi really knows his stuff, I'm not saying no poskim say like you, it can even be rov poskim say like you, i'm just telling you what this posek which over 10,000 families rely on for eating prepared foods (including meat products) told me. Maybe there's a reason why he feels AJ needs a hechsher, maybe?
Ur right. But it could be he never heard of the company so he didnt know if its really 100% juice

So according to this frozen concentrate would Need a hechsher as well?

This is from the crc kosher app.

Taken from the OU website:
In theory, pure orange, grapefruit and apple juice are always kosher (unless they are from Eretz Yisrael, in which case Terumah and Ma’aser must be taken). However, dairies which process these juices often share lines with various other products (most notably non-kosher grape juice and – of course - milk). Although the three rationales presented earlier which permit milk to be purchased without hashgacha apply here, the various factors involved in the case of juice production (such as the likelihood of non-kosher grape juice sharing juice equipment and the potential use of juice lines for other beverages) may be reason for the consumer to exercise caution. If one does purchase orange, grapefruit or apple juice without kosher certification, it is important to be sure that there are no additives. Ruby red grapefruit juice often has non-kosher carmine color added.
 Iced tea and iced coffee contain various additives and need reliable hashgacha

Ferrara candies kosher under supervision of UMK (United Mehadrin Kosher).

I think it's listed in the Chicago Rabbinical Council (Triangle CRC) as a reliable hechsher with the note that some meat products are not glatt. ASK UR LOR

Would be nice if someone would post with facts
Want facts? I worked for triangle K in a meat plant in Gibbon, Nebraska for 2 months. You would be horrified if you guys only knew what goes on there, and I'm not talking about heteirim. There was a mashdiach that was fired  because he raised kashrus issues.  The mashigichim and shochtim that work there will not eat anything that's triangle k. I have a lot to say, but don't feel comfortable in an open forum. All I could say is that I wouldn't trust them with water.
