is a quick look at the differences between processed
(boxed, canned or bottled) juices and fresh, natural juice that is
made with your juice extractor.
- Processed Juices
- Boxed or bottled juice is pasteurised and
the nutrients are completely destroyed.
- Juices made from imported produce and juice concentrates may
carry traces of pesticides.
- Juices from fruit concentrates do not contain the whole fruits
and they may be nothing more than sugar water -- possibly made
with chemicals in water from industrial sites.
- Acids from juices can leech metal from cans, causing canned
juice to spoil.
- Wax and other chemicals found in boxed juice containers can
taint the juice.
- Shrink-wrapped juice cartons come under high heat that depletes
enzymes in juice.
Natural juices contain all the vitamins, minerals, fluids, enzymes,
amino acids and chlorophyll (with no toxic additives) found in raw
vegetables - thereby helping the body by:
- Promoting growth and development
Assisting with digestion
- Providing energy
- Protecting against oxidation
- Renewing cells
- Enriching Blood
There is a wealth of benefits to drinking fresh fruit juices. Here
are just a few:
- People with difficulty chewing can intake raw vegetables in
- People too busy to eat a meal with vegetables can obtain the
nourishment of a salad by drinking fresh juice.
- Juice is easy on the stomach.
- Drinking juice enables one to have more of a vegetable's nutrients
than one would have by eating.
- Juice is a good alternative for people who lack appetites.
- Juice is a great nutrient source for babies and children who
otherwise may not want vegetables.
