The label 'organic' is a nebulous one, especially in Australia. There is no singular label which would define 'organic' vegetables, and it has been utilised as a marketing tool for products that have no business being labelled as such.
However, to us, and to the rest of the health food industry, this means a locally grown, locally sourced vegetable, produced in a manner that avoids use of chemicals, unnatural fertilisers, or pesticides. It means a vegetable that has been treated properly, and as a result of this natural growth, is healthier and more nourishing.
This is why, at Karmic Juices, we have recently found ourselves an excellent source for organic vegetables. We are now proudly juicing up locally sourced organic vegetables for our pressed juice cleanses, to better serve our health-conscious Melbourne clients.
One of the reasons that we decided to make this switch? At the end of the day, the juices that we make with these organic vegetables tasted better. The reality of their different makeup was self-evident in their taste and texture: it was a superior product, and it made better juice. In our pursuit of a tastier juice, we knew we had to get them in to our repertoire.
The health benefits of this method of growing your vegetables are in dispute. What isn't in dispute, however, are the benefits of avoiding transport costs and factory farming methods of the larger farms. We support small business owners with this practice, who provide us with a quality product, the fruit of their own labours. This, to us, made our pressed juice cleanses more enjoyable.
Stop by and taste the difference.
