As you all know by now we began selling bottled cold pressed juices in our stores and we are STOKED about it. It was a process to get up and running but since we bottled our first juices, you guys have been snatching them up! But you might be curious, why the change? There’s a lot of information out there about what is and is not the best and healthiest and it can be overwhelming at times. When it comes to juicing alone there is a TON of info that can easily be misinterpreted and confusing so we want to set things straight for you when it comes to different types of juicing.
There are two traditional ways of juicing that depend on the type of juicer you are using: centrifugal or masticating. The most common is the centrifugal, which is also the type of juicer we used thus far (and still use for those looking for a custom juice). Centrifugal uses sharp blades and centripetal force to grind the fruits and veggies and force the liquid through a mesh filter leaving the pulp behind.
Cold pressing starts with a food processor. First the fruits and veggies are pulsed into a large pulp. Then the pulp is put into the cold press machine where two plates squeeze together to press out the juice that falls into a tray below. Now that you have a basic understanding of the differences between juicing systems, let’s take a look at some pros and cons of each method.
So, we hope this explains things a bit better! Cold pressed is great for bottling and keeping this fresh. Centrifugal is also a great option if you are consuming the juice immediately. The most important part though is to go with whatever works for YOU and YOUR LIFE!
Stop in to any of our locations to see what flavors we have stocked for the day and remember the cold pressed juices are also 100% ORGANIC. Kali-O’s cares about you and your health!
