We recognize that during prosecution, claims are to be given their broadest reasonable interpretation in view of the specification. We, however, are reluctant to use the specification to construe claim language in a manner contrary to its unambiguous ordinary meaning. See, e.g., In re Yamamoto, 740 F.2d 1569, 1571–72 (Fed. Cir. 1984) (explaining that applicants can correct errors in claim language and adjust claim scope by amending claims in prosecution). Our reluctance is reinforced by Appellants’ use of alternative language in other claims. We assume that Appellants choose the language used in their claims with care and purpose. If Appellants intended to limit sucrose to 30 wt.% or less of the juice’s sugar content, they have demonstrated that they know how to do so.

Yamamoto, In re, 740 F.2d 1569, 222 USPQ 934 (Fed. Cir. 1984) 2111 2258
