Cold pressed juice a Fad? We think not! This super-juicing method is definitely here to stay.
It’s time to unlearn what you know about juicing, the bottle of orange and mango juice sitting in your fridge has the same amount of sugar and preservatives as a glass of soft drink! It’s jammed packed with preservatives to make it last weeks, and we know now is that as soon as you juice any fruit or vegetable you loose all of those wonderful nutrients your body needs.
Press juicing is a completely different and unique process and has caused a huge buzz amongst the health conscious and now the wider community. It is being hailed as the healthier way to consume your favourite fruit and vegetables and James McLoughlin from Green Press Melbourne explains that the main differences between a regular juice and the process of cold press juicing is that the “Cold pressed juice doesn’t use heat or oxygen so compared with a traditional juicer, it extracts 3-5 times the nutrients. It’s also fresh for 72 hours instead of 10 minutes.”
It’s the perfect way to get your dose of nutrients…if you’re not a fan of eating whole vegetables a cold press juice give you your daily recommended serving of fresh vegetables in one hit! Broccoli, kale, lettuce, cucumbers are just some of the fresh ingredients being used and as its pressed daily your cold pressed juice will never taste the same, which is how all food should be; Fresh!
Don’t forget labels are important:
Make sure the ingredients are local and 100% organic.
Cold pressing allows the juice to be fresh for approximately 3 days only (un-opened)- make sure you check the expiry.
Include a mixture of vegetables and fruit in your juice, to keep your fructose intake to a minimum.
Why we love Green Press?
Green Press use seasonally organic produce and put more nutrient dense vegetables in than anyone else.
They use significantly more kale than any recipe because the juice is supposed to be green, not filled with nutritionally void filler ingredients like coconut water, apple or lettuce.
They also use glass bottles and offer a 50c refund to anyone that brings the bottle back.
Feeling a little overwhelmed with all the new healthy and organic products available? We totally understand! It’s certainly is a little daunting to know what is real and what were being forced to believe by big business. The best way to make informed decisions is to do your own research, find out what people are saying about the product particularly look out for independent studies and of course try it out for yourself – not everyone will have the same experience.
