Is organic really that much better than non-organic and genetically modified produce?
Absolutely. Fresh raw cold-pressed juice made from non-organic and genetically modified produce can be TOXIC. And remember, the more you drink, the more pesticides and fertilizers your body will be ingesting. Yuck!
All Well + Proper’s juice is made from 100% organic produce without exception. If organic produce is not available, we will alter our recipe by substituting with another green produce or fruit that is organic. You will never find any ingredient in our juices that is not 100% organic and completely natural.
Does Well + Proper use High Pressure Processing? (HPP)
No, Well + Proper does not use this method. The process is also known as high hydrostatic pressure processing (HHP) and ultra high-pressure processing (UHP). More importantly this method requires that juice be served in plastic bottles. We always use glass bottles.
Although the shelf life is extended we believe that this process is not the best process for us to preserve the integrity of our juice. Because HPP is a method of food processing where food is subjected to elevated pressures (up to 87,000 pounds per square inch or approximately 6,000 atmospheres), with or without the addition of heat, to achieve microbial inactivation or to alter the food attributes. Pressure inactivates most vegetative bacteria at pressures above 60,000 pounds per square inch, which is why the shelf life is extended.
Is Well + Proper’s juice pasteurized? What is cold-pressed juice?
No. We curate your cold-pressed juices in small batches. Using a two step process. First off using a slow auger to pulp all your beautiful nutrient rich produce in a way that it never heats up. Then we juice the pulp using a hydraulic press to mechanically extract the juices from the organic produce. This process is called cold-pressed, which maintains the nutrient value and enzymes undamaged. This process also allows the produce to last longer compared to centrifugal juicers. With a centrifugal juicer the fast spinning blades heat up and oxidizes nutrients, which destroys most of the enzymes you actually want in your juice.
Pasteurizing involves heating juice to a high temperature for a brief time to kill bacteria that are naturally present in all juice. While it does kill bacteria, this process also depletes and destroys the very nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll that are found in raw cold-pressed juice that make it the most healthful, natural and nutritious juice you can buy.
Well + Proper juice is always raw, unpasteurized and unadulterated. Therefore, it may contain bacteria that can cause serious illness in children, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems. And always consult your doctor before changing your diet.
Why do you fill the bottles to the brim?
Our bottles are filled to the brim, because you can’t have too much of a good thing. You actually get 19 oz. of pure natural, organic fresh goodness in every 16 oz. bottle. But seriously, if we left any air in the bottle the oxygen could react with our juice, possibly deteriorating your lovely juice. Filling it to the brim not only gives you good value but it means that our juices will retain their original quality and freshness.
