A juice diet can change your life. It’s as simple as that, and it is related to a lack of dietary control on our part. The vast majority of Australians do not consume the recommended amount of vegetables in their daily diet, and a juice diet ensures that you cover those bases.
But not all Melbourne juice diets are created equal. In the juicing process, exposure to two elements – air and heat – can alter the ultimate level of dietary goodness that you are ingesting in your juice shake. This is why at Karmic Juices, we ensure that all of our juices are prepared in a method that maximizes their potential, through a method known as the cold press.
The vast majority of juicers are known as turntable juicers. Their spinning, seated blade shreds the vegetable, while its juices stream out through its surrounding screen. While they are the most common juicer, owing to their compact and popular design, the spinning blade, and the friction created by the blade, causes a high level of heat to be transmitted to the juice. This is not good for the more delicate sugars, bacteria, and fibres in the juice.
Meanwhile, the ‘dry’ shredding of the juice, and the act of spraying it through the screen, exposes the droplets of juice to high amounts of oxygen. This oxidises the juice, and breaks down the juices’ valuable enzymes more quickly.
However, cold press juicing is another beast altogether. The hydraulic press here actually squeezes the vegetable, creating an end product that has retained nearly all the healthiness that came with it. It produces a slightly thicker product, retaining more of the thick ‘pulpy’ elements. And, in our humble opinion, it provides a fuller, more natural taste.
In short? Cold pressing juices offer Melbourne the most out of their juice. In the search for the healthiest and best juice for our clients, we have taken this method to heart. We highly encourage you to come and see it for yourselves.
Melbourne, the capital of Victoria, lies in the south of the state. Bordered to the south by the wide expanse of Port Phillips Bay, and featuring a wide range of impressive Victorian-age architecture, the city has grown from humble roots to the second-largest urban centre in Victoria.
