What is cold-pressed juice?
First, understand the difference between a traditional centrifugal juice extractor and a cold-press juicer. The former, which uses a fast-spinning blade to extract juices via centrifugal force, is the more common type of juicer. What you don’t realise is, these fast-spinning blades generate heat, thus overheating and oxidising the juice, resulting in nutrient loss. The cold-press juicer, on the other hand, ‘presses’ – not shreds – the fruit or vegetable between blades for the highest juice yield, so only little heat is introduced in the process. In other words, not only will you get more juice out of a cold-press juicer but you’ll also get to keep the nutrients too.
1. La Juiceria
Beet Aid (Carrot, apple, beet, lemon, ginger)
Taste If people have been telling you that beetroot tastes like dirt, they’ve been lying. Yes, it’s earthy, which is exactly why you need the sweetness from apples and carrots. A hint of ginger should chase the smell away.
About the brand One of the co-owners of La Juiceria, Hong, was running an online company retailing fresh vegetables before teaming up with his partners to set up a physical store peddling bottled juices. If you’re into juicing at home, La Juiceria also sells the Korean Hurom slow juicer, which uses an auger to squeeze fruits and vegetables into juices.
2. Juice D’ Fruitz
Lovely Lady (Pineapple, orange, red apple and strawberry)
Taste Thick, sweet and pulpy (we’re serious, you can even chew on juicy chunks of strawberries), Lovely Lady is a smooth drink that’s recommended for its skin boosting benefits.
About the brand SetiaWalk juice bar Juice D’ Fruitz processes cold-pressed juices (usually served in conical flasks) upon order.
3. This Juice Co
Passionate (Passion fruit, raw honey, lemon, alkaline water)
Taste Passion fruit flavours take centre stage here, while raw honey and a hint of lemon provide the right balance. Crunch on passion fruit seeds as you chug this metabolism-boosting juice.
About the brand The folks at this Juice Co source organic fruits from their uncle (a fruit supplier), ensuring we get the best of the crop. Without a physical store of their own, This Juice Co juices can be found at Project Space Coffee at SS15 and Sevencupscafé in Empire Damansara.
50 Shades of Grey (Earl Grey tea, hazelnut, agave nectar, coconut, Himalayan salt)
Taste 50 Shades of Grey is cold and creamy, scintillating to the senses. Taste-wise, it’s more teh tarik than juice – almost veering into dessert territory. It’s blended with agave nectar for sweetness, and coconut and hazelnut for smoothness.
About the brand LifeJuice is intent on saving good people from bad juice – and from bad juice names. The bright, tiny bar whips up fresh, never-frozen drinks with names like Beet-le Juice, Green-Tox and Nutty Professor.
