What's the difference between cold pressed juice vs regular juice?

Up to a kilo of fruit and veg goes into each of our 500ml juices providing you with the best tasting juices with the highest concentration of nutrients that nature can supply!

But the question is 'does it really matter which one you drink?'

If you've never heard of cold pressed and wondering if there's much difference, the answer is yes. Read on to find out how cold pressed juice is made and why it's better for you and your body! 

Regular Juice

How is it produced?

Most regular juice on the market is produced with centrifugal juice extractors. This is traditionally the most common type of juicer, which includes a spinning metal blade, which spins against a mesh filter. This ultimately separates the juice from the flesh via centrifugal force.

The problem with this method is that it generates heat, which oxidises and destroys nutrients at a faster rate. You are also left with a lot of wastage in the pulp. What’s more regular shop bought juice tends to be heat pasteurised which destroys vitamins, minerals and antioxidants such as vitamin C.

Juice outcome: 

  • loses nutrients 
  • reduced amount of minerals 
  • essential antioxidants destroyed in process 
  • reduced health benefits 

 

Cold Pressed Juice

How is it produced?

Cold pressed juice is made by slowly grinding, squeezing and pressing fruit. There is minimal heat involved when juicing and the process squeezes out every last drop, leaving a more nutritious and flavoursome juice in comparison to your regular stuff on the shelf. In fact, some cold-pressed juicers claim to extract up to 35% more juice in comparison to regular juice.

Additionally, research has shown that the nutrients in cold-pressed juice break down much more slowly in comparison to regular juice, leaving you with a more nutritious juice.

Juice outcome: 

  • better taste (if stored properly, it still tastes fresh 2-weeks later!)
  • all of the nutrients in juice remain the same
  • majority of the vitamins and minerals go in, stay in 
  • increased health benefits 

 

Conclusion 

In conclusion, centrifugal juices break down the important enzymes in the fruits and vegetables because the problem with the method lies in the generation of heat, hence destroying nutrients that the fruit carry. On the other hand, cold-pressed juices are able to retain the vital vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients! So, if you don’t want to skimp off flavour and nutrition, then hands-down cold press juice is a clear winner!
