What should you look for in a cold pressed juice?

Not all cold pressed juices are created equally, so you want to make sure you are reading the labels of bottle. You want to make sure you are getting a healthy and nutritious juice that doesn’t contain any sneaky ingredients like sugar. Just because they say they’re “all natural” or “organic” does not mean they are actually good for your body! Read any labels that may be on the bottle and do your research so that you know you’re getting good quality juice.

You’ll want to play close attention to the ingredients list on the back of the bottle. Read each ingredient to make sure it’s made from only whole foods like a fruit or vegetable. If it has any scientific-looking unpronounceable names, steer clear. Stay away from any juices with added sugars as well. Sugar can be disguised in the ingredients list as many different names, like glucose or fructose, so read carefully! If you don’t know the ingredient, it probably isn’t a good one, so don’t drink it.

Along with the ingredients list, you’ll want to read the nutritional facts on the back of the bottle. Notice the calorie count and serving size of the cold pressed juice. That bottle you’re holding is likely 2 servings, not 1, and has more calories than you were anticipating. Because cold pressed juice is so nutritionally dense, it contains a higher caloric count. It takes a lot of produce to just to make that 500ml of juice, so it’s going to be more calories than just one single piece of fruit.  That doesn’t mean you should abstain though. Just be aware of how much cold pressed juice you’re consuming so you don’t overdo it.

Be sure to note the best-before date on your cold pressed juices too. Since they don’t contain preservatives, they don’t have a long shelf life. You want to drink them while they are still fresh. Most cold pressed juices only have a shelf life of 72 hours. If you aren’t drinking your juice right away, ask someone who works at your juice bar how to best store it until you are able to consume it. If your juice isn’t stored properly, it can turn bad and the nutrients can erode.

Can I drink cold pressed juice as a method of cleansing?

If you’re interested in cleansing and setting the reset button on your body, drinking cold pressed juice is a great way to do so.
