Check out this new juice! From Boulder, CO, Pressery is a fresh, raw, cold-pressed juice from organic fruits and veggies. After tasting some of the flavors (they have many!) we were hooked… We wanted to know more. Here’s what Pressery had to say about their product.
Can you tell us about Pressery?
Pressery makes chef-created, cold pressed juice, chia and nut milk blends from the freshest organic fruits and vegetables, sourced from local Colorado farmers when in season. Crafted in small batches, our unique blends offer something for everyone, any time of day. Pressery juices are the perfect complement to a healthy whole-foods diet, whether as a snack or on-the-go meal. Pressery blends provide a great energy and vitamin boost every day.
Where do you get your ingredients?
We source our ingredients from local, organic farmers whenever possible. One of our main focuses is to support local organic farmers- this way we are getting extremely fresh produce to put into our blends AND we are supporting local farmers to boost the demand for organic produce in Colorado.
What made you get into Juicing?
Ian and Mimi were inspired to create Pressery, after having enjoyed integrating healthy juices and smoothies into our active personal and professional lives. They recognized there was nothing on the market that took advantage of the extensive variety of local Colorado grown agriculture. Because we partner with local growers, we are able to create fresher juice than would come from outside Colorado.
What exactly is cold-pressed and what are the benefits?
Cold pressing is a two-step process that extracts juice by first crushing and then pressing fruit and vegetables for the highest juice yield. Cold pressed juicers don't produce heat, and therefore they keep more of the nutrients intact from the fresh ingredients. What is left after extracting all the juice with the vitamins and minerals from the vegetables and fruits, is a cardboard-like disc of fiber. The benefits of cold pressing is that it produces a translucent, refreshing juice that is easy to digest.
Most juicers sold on the market are centrifugal. The Centrifugal juicer first grinds the fruit and vegetables then pushes the extracted juice through a strainer by spinning at a very high rpm (similar to your washing machine on the spin cycle). The pulp from the produce is disposed of out the back of the juicer into a container in pulp ejecting versions. As a result of the blade spinning at high speeds, it produces heat. This heat oxidizes and separates nutrients naturally found in the whole fruits and vegetables, rendering those nutrients that make it into the juice less pure. With the centrifugal juicer, less juice is usually extracted from the produce and the pulp tends to be fairly moist with more juice waste.
So….in a nutshell, cold pressed juice is better because it:
- Is easy to digest
- has less oxidation
- contains more nutrients (3-5x)
