GENERAL JUICE FAQs
Q: How many calories are in each juice?
A: All of our juices are 100% organic, nutritionally dense, and loaded with natural vitamins, minerals antioxidants, and phytochemicals. The calorie content varies from juice to juice but we try to focus more on the nutrient content rather than the calorie count. Fruit-based juices and nut milks can contain more calories as opposed to vegetable juices, which tend to be much lower in calories and sugar.
Q: What type of juicer do you use and why do you love it so much?
A: We use the Norwalk juicer which was invented by Dr. Norman Walker, a world renowned researcher on health and nutrition. The Norwalk juicer is combines a two-step process. In the first step, the fruits and veggie fibers are triturated down to the cellular level of raw foods to enable the maximum extraction of nutrients. In the second step, hydraulic pressure extracts the nutrients from the pulp provided by the triturator. The result is raw, fiber-free juice that contains more nutrients than any other on the market. This juice can be absorbed directly into your bloodstream with the nutrients actually feeding your body cells within ten to fifteen minutes. And all this with no effort on the part of your body for digestion and assimilation.
Q: What's the difference between a cold-press juicer and a centrifugal juicer?
A: Centrifugal juicers work by using a flat cutting blade at the base of a rapidly spinning strainer, pushing the produce through tiny holes in the strainer. Heat, static electricity, and large amounts of air are drawn in, and nutrients and enzymes are destroyed as oxidation occurs. In contrast to the rough extraction and high speeds of centrifugal juicers, cold press juicers operate at lower speeds and gently compress fruit and vegetables to squeeze out the juice. Although cold pressed juice is typically more expensive, it is extracted through a much slower and thorough process that produces a more nutrient dense juice.
Q: What is high pressure pasteurization? Does Mother Juice use HPP?
A: High Pressure Processing (HPP) uses pressure -- as opposed to heat -- to make juice
