Our mission at Pressed Juicery is simple: make high nutrition a realistic option for all people. We do this by focusing on what others often forget: Make it taste great. Make it simple. Make it affordable. Make it for everyone. Your testimonials give us the confidence that our products are meeting our mission. Yet even as we expand, food safety is our number one priority. As an industry leader, we have researched the latest technologies available that best keep our products safe without compromising great taste. In a field crowded with opinions and unqualified conjecture, we feel strongly about having actual science to support our decisions.
This is why we use an extra measure of food safety called high pressure processing for our cold-pressed products. High pressure processing is the most popular measure of food safety utilized in the cold-pressed juice industry and this process will allow us to continue our mission of providing highly-nutritious products which are both safe and delicious.
The process entails placing a bottle of juice into a cold chamber of water and applying pressure to it. This pressure is high enough to inactivate potential pathogens and other microbes while having minimal impact on vitamins, antioxidants and nutrition. At no time are our juices ever heated and this process is substantially different than flash pasteurization.
In order to ensure the nutritional integrity of our products were not compromised, we commissioned the UCLA School of Medicine to study the impact of the high pressure process on the nutritional value of our juices. The study showed that a range of Pressed Juicery juices that have been through the process exhibit high antioxidant activity and contain diverse phenolic compounds that can contribute to health benefits after their consumption. These studies were presented at the American Society of Nutrition Conference in December 2015. According to UCLA School of Medicine, “Pressed Juicery products are in general dense in nutrition, low in sugar, yet high in fiber and are a sensible way of consuming calories.”
In addition, Pressed Juicery formed a medical and nutrition advisory board consisting of preeminent research physicians from medical schools such as Johns Hopkins Medical School. As with UCLA’s clinical findings, the medical board has independently concluded that Pressed Juicery’s juices that have been through the high pressure process provide significant overall health benefits.

In summary, we can now confidently provide superior food safety while maintaining the nutritional benefits of our products. As we seek to provide high-nutrition to all people, and as we expand our business to support this goal, the safety of our products remains paramount. We cannot support our mission and help people enhance their lives by potentially putting them at risk to food-borne illnesses. This is especially important in light of recent events in the food industry and the frequency of food safety issues and recalls related specifically to agricultural produce.
As the pioneers of the minimally processed foods movement, we have taken great care and consideration to make the right choices for the products we offer our customers. Based on UCLA School of Medicine’s clinical studies of Pressed Juicery’s products, as well as our Medical Advisory Board’s research, we are confident that our products meet the high standards of nutrition, quality and taste that were established when Pressed Juicery was first founded.
Juicing has changed our lives. We do it because of how great it makes us feel – because it gives us a lift, floods our body with nutrients, and tastes amazing. We hope our juice inspires you and gives you the momentum you need to live a happier, healthier, and more balanced life. We know it has for us.
