Whether you’re an advanced yogi or a person who just loves their juice, you will have no doubt heard of the biggest trend of the year: Cold Pressed Juices. It is tough to pass a store or cafe without noticing peppy bottles of cold-pressed juices lined up on their shelves.
While everyone from health fanatics to trendy food snobs are hopping on the juice train for its apparent benefits, some people are scratching their heads and wondering:
What Exactly Is Cold-Pressed Juice?
Well, cold-pressing is basically crushing the vegetables or fruits followed by pressing them to get maximum yield. This modern-day technique is called High Pressure Processing (HPP) which works by applying very high pressure (not heat) to a bottle of freshly squeezed juice. Once the pressure is applied to the raw juice, it is then placed into a container and sealed. They are then refrigerated to give them a longer shelf-live than unpasteurized juices.
How Is It Different From Regular Juice?
Three things set cold-pressed juice apart from regular juice: Quantity of produce used, pressure applied and preservation. The amount or quantity of produce used in one bottle of juice is way more than regular juice. Also, it has the so-called health benefit over regular juice. Because of minimal heat and air exposure, cold-pressed juices are said to contain more vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Once refrigerated, they also have a longer shelf-life than unpasteurized juices
Naturally since the juice contains more produce and requires expensive production and preservation techniques, it’s a little heavier on your wallet than regular juice.
Is Juice Necessary In The Diet?
Well, it does have a lot of health benefits. Drinking juice is the most natural and quickest way to increase your consumption of raw fruit and vegetables. It’s an excellent way to detox without losing your energy and will leave you feeling lighter, rested, bright-eyed and with lovely looking satin skin.
