Are you aware what is in the bottle of juice you are drinking or have been drinking because you thought it is healthy? Is your juice really as good as you are made to believe? The reality is that all juices are not born equal.
We opt for fruit juices compared to the frizzy or synthetic drinks that are available in the market are we think that juices are more healthy and natural. But let’s understand if they are. There are majorly 3 types of juices that are available in the market, here is a fact check to decode which is giving you the maximum nutrition:
Centrifugal Juice – The most well-known way to extract juice, it uses metal blades to break down the fruit or vegetable to make juice. The heat generated by the metal blades destroys the delicate enzymes and brings down the nutrition value of the juice. Though it is an easy way to make juice and money, the process leads to high wastage, oxidation in 20 minutes and a juice which is low in nutrition. Popular brands like Real, Tropicana, etc use this technology.
Masticator Juice – This method uses a slow rotating gear to break the fruit or vegetable and then extract juice. Though this method is able to retain more nutrients compared to Centrifugal process due to less heat, it leads to oxidization of the juices limiting its nutritious value. This process leads to a lot of wastage and a modest quality juice.
Cold Pressed Juice – Fruits and vegetables are grounded to a pulp which is then squeezed to extract the juice. This is considered as the healthiest way to make juice. The resultant produce is 5 times healthier than the other processes as it retains the maximum nutrition value of the fruit / vegetable and minimum wastage. The HPP technology also avoids oxidation of the juice. Also, there are no added sugar, flavors, chemicals or preservatives. So technically it is the best thing after consuming the fruit or vegetable in its natural state. Brands like RAW Pressery use this technology
