Definition: Cold Pressed

We are often asked how or what is cold pressed juice?  In today's world of processed foods someone says 'juice' the first thought that often comes to mind is 'Welches', 'from concentrate' or even the ever consistent 'Five Alive'.

While there is not international reliable definition of cold-pressed, the process of creating cold pressed juice, oils etcetera is constant.  Cold pressed juice (and oils for that matter) is a two step process, the first being to create a mulch or fine grind of the ingredients and the second stepis the pressing of these ingredients at such a high amount of pressed that the juice (or oil) is extracted.  What is left is a flakey, dry pulp that is almost colour-less and most definitely tasteless. The proof is in the pulp, if you will, that all nutrients have been extracted and is now bottled and ready to drink.  This whole process is done below 25 degrees, keeping the temperature low is vital in preserving the nutrients and enzymes whole for optimal nutrition.

So why is this better for you?  Let us count the reasons for you.

To go and purchase this and sit down and graze would day you a lot of time and money.  Cold pressed juice is a convenient way to ensure your a getting those vital nutrients while leading the busy lives we all lead.
