At Healthy Being we fresh press our juices daily in small batches with loving care and intention using only the freshest, organic or local (better than organic) produce. Sustainability and Sacred Commerce are key in our process and we carry our Intention through to every level of our business.
You might have heard the term ‘coldpressed’ and thought, what exactly does that mean? What makes it so different? Is it the same as the juice I make at home?
Let us explain…
Coldpressing juice is the healthiest, most nutritionally beneficial way to make juice. Similar to olive oil, the coldpressing process preserves the nutritional quality and the vibrant flavors of the ingredients. At Healthy Being our commercial coldpress machine uses hydraulic pressure to extract the juice from our organic fruits and vegetables. This process enables us to extract 3-5x the amount of vitamins, minerals and enzymes compared to a standard juicer without heating up, aerating or compromising the nutritional density of the juice.
All of our produce is prepped & pressed daily, within hours of being delivered to our customers. After receiving our produce, we perform an extensive wash on all of our fruits and vegetables. Our commercial coldpress quickly and gently chops the produce as it makes its way between the two steel plates which slowly come together and apply thousands of pounds of pressure to the pulp. This process ‘presses’ out every last drop of liquid and leaves behind dry, brittle fiber which contains little to no nutritional value (but the pigs and chickens at the farms still love it). The juice is then bottled and ‘topped off’ before capping to minimize any possible oxidation. Our juice stays fresh, alive and nutrient dense for up to 72 hours. Our juice is raw and NEVER heated, pasteurized or HPP’d (high pressure processed).
In contrast, the juicers used in many juice bars, restaurants, groceries and households are centrifugal or masticating juicers. These juicers use a blade which rotates at high speeds to cut up the produce which is then pushed through a fine mesh to extract the juice. This method, although a lot quicker, results in a lower juice yield, tends to aerate the juice and leaves behind a large portion of pulp that still holds a good amount of nutrients. Juices made through this method should typically be consumed within 20 minutes before significant nutritional deterioration occurs.
We are dedicated to providing our community with the most nutrient dense, delicious, coldpressed juice possible.
