Benefits of Cold Pressed Juice

Cold pressed juices are gaining traction among health-conscious individuals, largely because they’re the purest liquid form of the raw fruits themselves. But why are they so valuable to your health? For starters, there’s no artificial sugars and they enhance nutrient absorption. They do plenty more, though. If you’re thinking about switching from conventional juices to a raw, more natural alternative, read on to explore the army of benefits that cold pressed juices have to offer. 

The Cold Pressing Process

Cold pressing is the purest way to extract juice from fruits & vegetables. Unlike traditional juicing methods that involve heat and high-speed blending, cold pressing utilizes a hydraulic press to slowly extract juice from fruits and vegetables. The combination of thermal heat & blending destroy the chemical structure of the raw fruit, making it far less valuable to your health. But cold pressing, on the other hand, is a gentle & meticulous process that preserves the natural nutrients, enzymes, and flavors found in the produce.  By all accounts, it’s the healthier way to produce juices. 

Cold-pressing is far & away the best way to turn raw fruits into raw fruit juice. But even the best equipment and most advanced processes can’t salvage low-quality produce. At Raw Juicery, we carefully source organic ingredients from all over the world. This ensures that we can produce the best possible flavor and maximize the nutritional value of each sip. All of our ingredients are free from genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). 

After being finely chopped, the ingredients are loaded into a hydraulic press, which applies intense pressure to extract the juice. Unlike traditional juicers that rely on centrifugal force or high-speed blades, the hydraulic press gently squeezes the produce, effectively extracting every drop of juice. Imagine nearly 100,000 pounds of pressure per square inch (psi) converging on a slice of fruit; that’s essentially what happens. This slow and controlled pressing method minimizes heat generation and oxidation, preserving the natural enzymes and nutrients in the juice.

The extracted juice is then carefully collected and strained to remove any remaining pulp or solids. Once strained, it’s bottled and subjected to High Pressure Processing (HPP), a pasteurization alternative that destroys potential pathogens like bacteria and significantly extends the shelf life without compromising the nutritional integrity.

Health Benefits of Cold Pressed Juice

Compared to conventional juices, cold pressed juice offers a myriad of health benefits. It’s more nutrient dense and rich in essential vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Shortly after making the switch to cold pressed juice, you’ll reap these kinds of benefits: 

Enhanced Nutrient Absorption

The primary advantage of cold pressed juice is that your body can more easily absorb the beneficial nutrients, almost as if you were taking a bite straight out of the produce. The slow and gentle extraction process preserves the natural enzymes found in fruits and vegetables, which play a crucial role in the digestion and absorption of nutrients. Conventional juicing methods obliterate these nutrients, rendering the juice itself rather useless to you. It’s more akin to sugar water than juice thanks to the heat & fast-spinning blades.

Detoxification & Cleansing

Cold pressed juice is often associated with detoxification and cleansing benefits. The combination of fresh fruits and vegetables in the juice helps to flush out toxins from the body and support the natural detoxification processes. The high water content in the juice also helps to hydrate the body and promote healthy kidney function. Regular consumption of cold pressed juice can aid in eliminating waste and toxins, revitalizing your body & mind.

Boosted Immunity & Energy Levels

The nutrient-rich composition of cold pressed juice plays a major role in immune health & overall energy levels. Certain vitamins like B6, B9, and D, as well as minerals like iron, zinc, magnesium, and beta-carotene support your energy levels and immune systems. Most people don’t consume enough of these on a daily basis, making cold-pressed juices a healthy & convenient option to supplement the deficiencies. Higher concentrations of these will elicit stronger & faster immune responses, helping to ward off illnesses and infections. Additionally, the natural sugars found in fruits provide a quick and sustained energy boost, making cold pressed juice an excellent choice for those in need of an energy pick-me-up.

Weight Management

Cold pressed juice is lower in calories, fat, and sugar than traditional beverages. The fiber content is also much higher, which helps to keep you feeling full and reduce cravings. Regularly drinking these juices will make it easier to maintain portion control and avoid overeating. If combined with a healthy diet & exercise routine, these cold pressed juices are a great weight-loss aid.

Improved Digestion & Gut Health

The natural enzymes and fiber present in cold pressed juice help improve digestion and regulate gut health. The enzymes help break down food and facilitate the absorption of nutrients, boosting the overall efficiency of your digestive system. The fiber content helps to regulate bowel movements, prevent constipation, and support a healthy gut microbiome.

Environmental & Ethical Benefits

In addition to the numerous health benefits, cold pressed juice is a more environmentally-conscious and ethical choice compared to traditional bottled juices. And as we become increasingly conscious of our choices, it's important to consider the sustainability and ethical practices involved in the production of cold pressed juice. 

Sustainable Production

At Raw Juicery, we source all of our ingredients from local, organic farms. And by supporting local farmers, the transportation distance is reduced, leading to lower carbon emissions associated with transportation. On top of that, organic farming practices promote soil health, biodiversity, and reduce the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, thus minimizing the negative impact on the environment. 

Ethical Sourcing

Organically-grown ingredients and fair-trade practices tend to go hand in hand – this case is no different. All of the farmers and workers involved in the production of Raw Juicery ingredients are paid fair wages and provided with safe working conditions. In the agriculture industry, this is a rarity, unfortunately. Our juice ingredients support ethical labor practices and contribute to the overall well-being of communities involved in the supply chain.

Reduction of Food Waste

If fruits don’t look “good enough” to be displayed on a grocery store shelf, they’re usually thrown away. The reality is, they don’t taste any different; they just look different. What most of the juice industry sees as waste, we see as opportunity. We don’t waste any "imperfect" looking fruits or vegetables, contributing to less food waste and supporting a more sustainable & efficient food system.

Recyclable & BPA-Free Packaging

All of our Raw Juicery products are bottled in polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a clear, strong, lightweight, and the most recyclable form of plastic in the world. It’s free of BPAs, BPS, phthalates, and phthalate-based Plasticizers. Once you’ve finished your juice, please recycle. 

In conclusion, cold pressed juice goes beyond its health benefits and extends to positive environmental and ethical impacts. From sustainable production practices, ethical sourcing, and reduction of food waste to conscious packaging and consumer education, cold pressed juice aligns with the values of individuals seeking to make a positive impact on the planet. By supporting the production and consumption of cold pressed juice, you contribute to a more sustainable and ethical food system.
