What are the differences between cold pressed juice and heat pasteurised juice
The difference between Cold Pressed and Heat Pasteurised Juice
Cold-pressed juice and heat-pasteurised juice are two popular options for people who want to enjoy the health benefits of fresh fruit and vegetable juice.
Although both methods extract juice from fruits and vegetables, there are significant differences between the two in terms of nutrition, taste, and production process.
Cold-pressed juice is made using a hydraulic press that applies pressure to the fruits and vegetables to extract the juice.
The process is performed at a low temperature, usually around 0-15 degrees celsius, which helps to preserve the nutrients, vitamins, and enzymes in the juice.
The juice is then bottled or packaged without undergoing any further heating or treatment, which means it has a shorter shelf life than heat-pasteurized juice.
Heat-pasteurized juice, on the other hand, is made by heating the juice to a high temperature, usually between 65-75 degrees celsius, to kill off any harmful bacteria and extend its shelf life.
This heating process can cause some of the nutrients, vitamins, and enzymes in the juice to break down, resulting in a reduction of the juice's nutritional value.
Despite this, heat-pasteurized juice is still a popular option for people who want to enjoy the taste and convenience of fresh juice, but don't have access to a cold-pressed juicer, manufacturer or brand.
In terms of taste, cold-pressed juice has a more natural and fresh flavour, as the low-temperature process helps to retain the flavour of the fruits and vegetables.
On the other hand, heat-pasteurized juice can sometimes taste slightly cooked or have a bland flavour due to the heating process.
In terms of cost, cold-pressed juice is often a little more expensive than heat-pasteurized juice due to the higher production costs associated with the low-temperature process.
The juice also has a shorter shelf life, which means it needs to be consumed or refrigerated within a few days after opening.
In conclusion, both cold-pressed juice and heat-pasteurized juice have their own unique benefits and drawbacks.
Cold-pressed juice is the best option for people who want to get the maximum nutritional value, taste and health benefits from their juice.
Ultimately, the choice between the two will come down to personal preference and individual health and nutritional needs.
