What is Cold Pressed Juice?
The method used to make cold pressed juice is quite different from other method of juice extraction we are familiar with. Unlike the other methods which use high speed spinning blades to extract the juice, Cold pressed juice (as the name suggests) is made by pressing fruits and vegetables between two plates at a very high pressure to extract the juices.
Benefits of Cold Pressed Juice
When using a traditional centrifugal for juice extraction, the blades spins so rapidly that they generate heat which destroys heat sensitive vitamins and cause denaturation of some important enzymes. The process also allows air to enter the extracted juice which causes oxidation of some nutrients. The end result is a freshly squeezed juice, but with a lower nutritional content than the fresh produce.
With our Cold-Pressed method, on the other hand, no heat is produced during the extraction process. The nutrients and enzymes are preserved and you will get all the nutrients present in the fresh fruits and vegetables.
What is H.P.P?
High Pressure Processing (H.P.P), is a state-of-the-art process based on what is commonly known as pressure cycles which uses pressure instead of heat to kill harmful pathogens present in foods. This process is considered the safest food preservation and involves the fresh juice, already sealed in its final packaging, being subjected to extremely high hydrostatic pressure, where water is used as the pressurization fluid. The high pressure disrupts the microbial cells, thereby destroying harmful pathogens present in the foods, while leaving the smaller molecules such as vitamins and flavour particles unaffected. The juice therefore has a longer shelf life, is safer for consumption and has virtually all the same nutritional content and flavour as the produce.
What is the shelf life of our cold pressed juice?
The HPP process guarantees a shelf life of 30 days, if unopened and kept in refrigerator.
The juices are made from raw fresh fruits and vegetables and are therefore easily perishable. This is why it is important that they are always kept refrigerated and stay chilled until they are consumed. Once opened, the juice should be consumed within 2 days maximum.
What is Probiotic and how does it benefit me?
Probiotics have a number of benefits for your body. They help balance the healthy bacteria in your digestive system, aiding digestion, reducing gas, increasing muscle health and recovery, aiding your immune system and much more.
