What makes Juice Society unique?
Juice Society is supported by a team of passionate health enthusiasts that are dedicated to providing you with pure, unadulterated organic & raw cold-pressed juice. You will never find any additives, preservatives or artificial ingredients in our products. Our juices will never be in plastic bottles or compromised with HPP. We are dedicated to supporting local and organic farmers while also promoting sustainability. By combining these core values we are able to provide the community with the most nutritionally dense, high quality juice possible. We have high juice standards and believe you should to.
We are Juice Society.
What is the difference between cold-pressed and the juice I make at home?
Cold-pressing is the process of extracting juice from fruits and vegetables through the use of high pressure rather than heat. Our commercial cold press machine first gently grinds the produce into a pulp before it is placed between steel plates which slowly come together and apply thousands of pounds of pressure to the pulp. This method allows us to extract five times the amount of vitamins, minerals and enzymes as a typical centrifugal or mastication produced juice. What is left at the end is a dried out pulp which contains little to no nutritional value (since all of your nutrients are now in your juice!) All of our juices are topped off before bottling to further minimize any oxidation and stay fresh and alive for up to 72 hours.
In contrast, the juicers used in many 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.
What is the shelf life of the juices? Do they need to be refrigerated?
All of our juices at Juice Society are raw & unpasteurized. It is important that they are refrigerated upon delivery and until prior to your consumption. All of our juices retain their peak nutritional value for up to 72 hours. We suggest checking the bottom of the bottle for the exact expiration date.
What is HPP and pasteurization and why isn’t Juice Society treated by HPP or pasteurized?
Pasteurization is a process used on items en route for human consumption (i.e. juice) that brings the product to extremely high temperatures before rapidly cooling it down again. The reason behind this is to kill off all unwanted or harmful bacteria while extending shelf life; yet the process also leads to the destruction of any beneficial and nutrient dense life forms.
In order to avoid pasteurizing their juices, many companies have turned to a new alternative called HPP or high pressure processing. HPP is a process similar to pasteurization except intense pressure is used instead of heat to eliminate any harmful bacteria. This process can only be performed on plastic bottles and it allows companies to artificially increase the juice's shelf life to just about 30 days. The disadvantage to this is that the live enzymes that give raw juice it's benefits, die off after 4-7 days meaning that, just as pasteurized juice, you are no longer retaining maximum nutritional value.
Juice Society does not believe in artificially extending the shelf life of our juice. We work hard to bring our customers nutrition in it's most pure form and will not sacrifice quality for shelf space in retailers.
My juice separated, does that mean it went bad?
Separation is completely normal in our cold-pressed juice! Just give it a good shake & sip away.
How many calories are in your juice?
We don't believe in counting calories here at Juice Society as not all calories are created equally. 100 calories from a green juice is not the equivalent of 100 calories from french fries. We believe in nutrient dense, living, raw foods that despite the calories will nourish, heal and replenish your body with what it needs. For those with caloric concerns we recommend our all vegetable juices as those tend to contain the lowest calories & sugar.
Are your juices 100% organic?
Yes. Our juices are made with organic produce that is also local whenever possible. We are big believers in supporting small, local, organic & sustainable farms that provide produce free of chemicals, herbicides and pesticides.
Why do you use glass instead of plastic?
Our goal is to stay committed to what we value at Juice Society: high quality product and decreasing our impact on the environment. Plastic bottles are known for leaching chemicals into the liquid inside while glass bottle allow us to maintain the quality, taste and freshness of our cold-pressed juice. Our glass bottles also allow us to reduce, reuse & recycle which reduces any unneeded addition to landfills and waste.
Do you offer a credit on your glass bottles?
Yes! For every rinsed, cleaned and residue free bottle returned you will receive a $.50 credit towards your next purchase! Learn more here.
