FAQ

What is Cold-Pressed Juice?

The biggest benefit of cold pressing juice is slow or minimal oxidation/decomposition (or mixing of air with juices) during the grinding and pressing process. With a centrifugal or rotary blade juicer, the high speed blade applies heat to the fruits or vegetables going through, thus oxidizing and breaking down vital nutrients and enzymes quickly. This juice should be consumed within 15-20 minutes of making it. Conversely, our cold press juicer takes multiple steps to extract juice slowly and meticulously from the plant. After slow grinding (or triturating), the pulp falls into a filter bag and is then met with 110psi of pressure between two steel plates. This serves to gently and completely extract the natural fruit sugars, trace minerals, enzymes, vitamins and other vital elements. 

What is the difference between Mama Juice and what I buy at the grocery store?

The juice you buy at the grocery store is pasteurized unless it is made onsite. During pasteurization, juices are heated up to 82 degrees Celsius, therefore leaving you to consume basically sugar and water. Heating food to 48 degrees Celsius or higher destroys the essential nutrients and enzymes that your body needs. Our Cold-Pressed juices are 100% clean, providing you with exactly what nature intended…an amazing burst of energy, healthy nutrients & enzymes directly to your bloodstream, and heightened mental clarity.

Why does Cold-Pressed juice seperate?

See that dark part of your juice at the bottom of the bottle? That right there is what we call the sediment, i.e. the good bit! Those are the nutrients (all the parts of the vegetable which aren’t water) so when you are juice shopping these are actually the bits you should be looking for.

Did you know that most vegetables are comprised mostly of water anyway? Take kale which is 84%, or cucumber is 96% water. It is no different when it comes to fruits, both pineapple and orange have 87% water.

So it is not surprising when you juice these fruits and vegetables that a lot of that nutrient dense water comes out too. If left to sit, the water is lighter than the vitamins, minerals and all the goodness, which then sinks to the bottom.

What are the benefits of Cold Pressed Juice?

Cold-Pressed juice is a great way to give your body an energy boost and kick start your "insides". A quick and easy way to get the nutrients you need, wrapped up in a tasty, nutritious serving of vitamin enriched superfoods.

When should I drink my juice?

When you drink raw juice around 20-30 minutes before eating a meal, it will serve to help stimulate your body’s secretion of the digestive juices, serving as a great appetizer. Further, for maximum nutrient absorption, it's advised juices be consumed on an empty stomach.

Can I drink your Cold-Pressed juices if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?

It is not advised for nursing or pregnant women to drink unpasteurized juices. Although many women do, we at Mama Juice Co. advise that you always consult with your health practitioner before making any changes to your diet while pregnant or breastfeeding.

We do not dilute our juice with water, ever. What you are receiving is 2-3 POUNDS of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Should I keep my juices refrigerated?

So long as the juice is kept cold (4 degrees or lower), it will last for up to 30 days. We do not add any additional preservatives or heat to treat our juices. We strongly suggest you drink it by the END of the date listed on the label. So please enjoy our juices CHILLED and make sure to stock up before you run out.

What is HPP and how does it work?

If you purchase any of our juices in a plastic bottles/container, our juice would have been processed via HPP (High Pressure Processing). HPP inactivates bacteria (such as isteria, salmonella, E. coli and other deadly bacteria), viruses, yeasts, moulds, and parasites present in food. What this means is, your juice (if purchased in a plastic container) will last up to 30 days. Make sure to keep the juice refrigerated but now you can enjoy Mama Juice, even longer.

When you expose foods to HPP, microorganisms are destroyed, but foods itself are not effected, covalent bonds are not damaged, and [HPP] leaves nutritional content intact. It helps establish a longer shelf life without actually altering nutritional value. 

Mama Juice Co. has a shelf life up to 30 days as specified on the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) website.
