Guide to Organic Juices
|Organic juices are processed, stored, and handled in accordance with precise technical standards and certified as "organic" by the USDA or another internationally recognized labeling authority. |
The best varieties are “direct” juices that are cold pressed from organic fresh fruit; they are not from concentrate and contain no additional sugar, colorants, preservatives, GMOs, or hormones. However, some brands add juice concentrate and ascorbic acid. Most are bottled without filtering the pulp, which is one of the healthiest parts of fruits. Many brands also use flash pasteurization to keep the flavor and the nutrients intact, as well as to lengthen shelf life. Organic juice can be very rich in vitamins and potassium and can help increase resistance to infections.
