You've got questions, we've got answers
What makes People's Pressed different?
What makes People’s Pressed unique is the cold-pressed process we use to make our juice. We juice in small batches using thoughtfully-sourced fruits and vegetables. Additionally, we do our best to source fresh produce from local farms and give back to the environment by composting our juice pulp. We will never use artificial ingredients and additives we can’t pronounce or any type of heat processing and pasteurization.
What is 'Cold-Pressed' juice?
Cold-pressed juice is the purest way of extracting juice from fruits and vegetables. First, we gently grind our produce into pulp. After grinding the pulp, we place it between two stainless steel plates. The plates are pressed together applying one thousand pounds of pressure to the pulp. Then, we watch as vibrant colorful juice comes streaming out of the press and into your bottle.
This method allows us to provide you with 5x more nutrients than your typical at-home centrifugal and masticating juicers. Remember, your cold-pressed juice stays fresh for 3 days.
What is HPP? Why doesn't People's Pressed pasteurize their juice?
People’s Pressed juices are never processed or pasteurized.
High pressure processing (HPP) is a method used to increase the shelf life of bottled juice. Instead of heat processing, HPP gives companies an alternative option to prevent harmful pathogens inside bottled juice. The disadvantage to HPP is that the live enzymes and nutrients that are of nutritional value typically only survive for 5-7 days, which means after this time frame, you are no longer benefiting from juice that’s been sitting on a shelf for up to 30 days.
Pasteurization is a heat process that most companies use to kill off harmful bacteria in both food and juice, as well as extending the shelf life. The high temperatures that are used in this process yet again lead to the destruction of beneficial live forms within juice.
People’s Pressed juices are cold pressed daily. We’re committed to bringing you the purest juice and never compromise nutritional value for shelf life.
How many days does my juice stay fresh? Should I keep it refrigerated?
With proper refrigeration, our juices have a shelf life of three days. Just make sure you store your juice 40º or below for your safety. If you don’t have access to a refrigerator, consume your juice within 7 hours and always make sure to drink your juice before the “enjoy by” date.
How many bottles of juice can I drink a day?
That’s really up to you. Some people like to drink their juice as a meal replacement, others like to drink juice as a supplement to their everyday diet.
Do you source local produce?
To put it simple, when we can source produce from local farms, we do.
How many calories are in one bottle of juice?
Our juices range from 70-200 calories per bottle. Juices that contain more fruit will have a higher caloric value than our green juices. We believe that even though some of our juices are higher in calories, the quality of nutrients that make up these calories are more important than counting them.
Why is my juice separating?
Don’t worry, separation is completely normal. It’s just proof that we don’t use any fillers, binders or heat processing. When separation occurs just give your bottle a quick shake before you take a sip.
Sometimes my juice tastes different, why is that?
Have you ever gone to the grocery store and bought two oranges at the same time and they are identical yet one is slightly sweeter than the other? There are slight variances in flavor between every batch of fresh produce that is then reflected in our juice. With that said, we carefully press every batch to ensure consistency.
Why is People's Pressed juice so expensive?
Each bottle of cold-pressed juice is made from over two pounds of fresh produce. We juice in small batches, hand pour every bottle and are committed to consistency, quality and taste. We’re very proud of our product and want to make sure each bottle is enjoyable. Furthermore, purchasing from local farms results in higher price points.
AND we all know juicing is messy and laborious. Just order your juice online and let us do the work.
