FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does “cold-pressed” mean?
Cold-pressing is the process of extracting nutrient rich juice from fresh produce by using high pressure exerted through a Hydraulic Press or Commercial Juicer. The low-levels of oxidation during the juicing process does not compromise the integrity of the produce which results in a juice that is fresh, nutrient dense, rich in color, and full of flavor.
What is the difference between a hydraulic press and a regular juicer?
A normal centrifugal juicer takes a whole fruit or vegetable and liquifies at extremely high speeds, a hydraulic press actually grinds the produce into a fine pulp, after which it applies thousands of pounds of pressure to this pulp, extracting every ounce of juice that the fruit or vegetable can possibly yield. The results are nutritious, smooth-tasting juices. The pressing action allows for little to no air to be introduced into the juice, and because of this each bottle can be kept in sealed, refrigerated containers for up to 3 days with no loss of taste, nutrients, or color.
What is the difference between a store-bought juice and a Southern Sqweeze JUICE?
Most juices you buy at the store have either been pasteurized, depleting almost all of the nutritional value of the juice. At Southern Sqweeze, we do not pasteurize our juice leaving all the nutrients intact for optimal benefits.
Why is my juice separating?
Natural separation occurs. Your juice is still good, just give it a nice shake.
Why does juice only last for three days?
Our juice is fresh. It does not contain any preservatives and it has not been pasteurized. Though this is great for our bodies, this leaves our juice highly perishable. Drink up!
