What is the Difference between Cold Pressed Juice and Centrifugal Juices
Juicing has gained immense popularity in recent years, as people have become more health-conscious and actively seek ways to improve their well-being.
With the numerous vitamins and benefits that juicing provides, it has become a preferred choice for many. However, there is often a debate about whether there is a difference between juices made in a cold pressed juicer and those made in a centrifugal juicer.
As the founder of Nectar Cold Pressed, Australia's favourite cold pressed juice, I've done the research (and over 10 years experience making cold pressed juice) to shed some light on this topic.
Let's start with centrifugal juice, which is often considered the traditional method of juicing.
This method involves separating the juice from the pulp of fruits and vegetables using high-speed metal blades.
Centrifugal juices are commonly found in grocery stores as they are cheaper and faster to produce. However, the heat generated during the juicing process causes oxidation of the ingredients, resulting in low retention or complete loss of nutrients and vitamins.
While consuming any form of fresh fruit is better than none, it seems counterproductive to drink something that provides minimal benefits to the body.
Cold Pressed Juicing
On the other hand, cold press juicing involves using hydraulic presses to crush and grind fruits and vegetables to extract juice from them.
Cold press juicers use a slow chewing method that does not involve high heat, making them nutrient and vitamin-packed.
Although the process may be more labour-intensive and time-consuming, the lack of heat and preservatives in cold pressed juices ensures that they retain their nutritional value.
Additionally, as cold-pressed juice does not contain the fibre from the pulp, it is easier to digest.
It is worth mentioning that cold-pressed juices have a shorter shelf life compared to supermarket bought juices. However, this is intended to preserve their freshness and taste, and a shelf life of 90 days is still quite significant.
Cold press juicing is ideal for those looking to improve their overall health, as it allows you to consume a variety of vegetables and fruits in a convenient way.
Instead of eating multiple fruits or vegetables separately, you can create customized combinations tailored to your needs and enjoy the benefits in a single glass.
So, which type of juice is right for you?
Ultimately, it is a personal decision.
If you have a busy schedule and prefer making juices at home, the centrifugal method may seem like a convenient choice.
However, considering the research, cold pressed juices retain a higher amount of vitamins and nutrients.
At Nectar Cold Pressed, we offer a range of products that strike the perfect balance of health, taste, value, and convenience. So, there are no excuses now to settle for a centrifugal juicer!
