Cold-pressed juice is juice extracted by hydraulic pressure or mastication so that minimal heat or oxidation occurs. The result is a raw juice with all the vitamins, nutrients, and enzymes intact.
Since no water, sugar, artificial flavorings, or preservatives are added, cold pressed juices must be kept refrigerated at under 2-5 degrees C. It can generally last for up to 3 days if kept in optimal conditions.
The sugar in fruit is natural, not highly processed like refined white sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Natural sugars from fruit are one of the best sources of clean energy for your body. Nobody ever becomes obese from eating too much fruit.
We use fruit that has been quickly frozen (IQF). IQF fruit has many advantages over “fresh” fruit for smoothies.
All of our leafy greens are grown on farms using organic methods and are undergoing organic certification. All of our other produce is from hydropnic farms or farms that are certified Global Gap and Viet Gap.
While the organic industry is steadily growing, there is very little produce that is truly certified organic, and the number of items is very few. For example, there are no organic fruits currently being grown in Vietnam.
Some independent farmers grow fruits and vegetables responsibly without the use of pesticides, but this does not make it organic. Organic also encompasses standards for processing, warehouse storage, cold chain, and soil that has not been previously grown with pesticides for 7 years.
In short, the farming industry in Vietnam is not there yet. We are continually searching for better and higher quality ingredients, so as the industry develops you will see more and more organic in our products.
