Benefits of a Cold-Pressed Juice

Not All Green Juice is Created Equally

Benefits of Cold-Pressed JuiceStroll down the front aisle of your local health food store (even Starbucks), and you’re guaranteed to stumble past a refrigerated front display of vegetable and fruit-based bottled juices from a variety of mass-produced brands.  Green juice has gone mainstream, but just like anything else, you must be aware of all your options and make an educated decision before you buy, because not all juice is created equally.

Juice on the Shelf

Juices typically found in the grocery stores are heated to a high temperature to kill harmful bacteria. But this high heat process, called pasteurization, alters and destroys the cell-activating, live enzymes, vitamins and phytonutrients originally found in the vegetable and fruit juice. Learn how to read between the lines; marketing can make labels quite confusing to decipher.

“Fresh” Juice Bar

Found in your local juice bar, “fresh” juice is made with fruits and veggies that are put into a centrifugal juicer with fast spinning metal blades that use force to push the contents through a mesh filter that separates the juice from the flesh. The process of fast spinning, slicing blades can overheat and oxidize the juice resulting in a low nutrient (and a less palatable) juice.

 

Cold-Pressed Juice

Raw produce goes in, raw juice comes out. Your body craves (and deserves) nutritious (and delicious) fuel. That’s why we only use a top-of-the-line Hydraulic Press with the freshest of produce. The cold-pressurized process is actually quite labor intensive. First, fresh produce is gently ground to a pulp. Next, the pulp and fiber are captured in cloth bags and pressed slowly to release an amazing amount of vitamins, minerals and living enzymes. The raw, fresh pressed juice is bottled quickly to ensure a high quality product to fuel your body.

High-Pressure Processing (HPP)

It’s all in the method. Once it’s bottled up, LizzyJays juice goes through a cold, water-pressure method called  High Pressure Processing (HPP). HPP uses extremely high water pressure (pressure roughly enough to equal the water pressure at the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean) to kill the most dangerous foodborne bacteria that can cause illnesses. But because HPP does not use high temperatures, the taste, color, texture and nutritional values of the juice is preserved.

This processes ensures that all of our juices are safe to drink (pathogens are removed) without losing any vitamins, minerals or  <atitle=”why are=” ” enzymes=”” so=”” important?”=”” href=”http://www.lizzyjaysjuice.com/blog/enzymes”>live enzymes. You’re left with the most vibrant bottle of pure goodness packed with the maximum amount of nectar.

It’s Alive!

Pressed juice is higher in essential nutrients compared to the average home juicer or commercial centrifugal juice bar machine. Fresh pressed juice also produces almost twice as much from the same amount of raw produce (which means more vegetables and fruits are packed into one 16-ounce bottle). LizzyJays raw juice is alive with vitamins that nourish the skin and hair, encourage cell renewal and protect against environmental damage. So, the next time you walk by the refrigerated juice section at the store, think twice about that (pasteurized) juice bottle; instead place an order with LizzyJays and get free shipping to arrive conveniently (and chilled) right at your doorstep.
