PRODUCT FAQ:


Why cold-pressed?


Our passion is to produce the best juice possible. Our individually formulated cold-pressed juices, nut milks and powerful shots are handcrafted in small batches and immediately bottled, giving us complete quality control and you the best product possible.


We use a powerful stainless-steel hydraulic press to extract every drop of pure juice from fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs. Cold pressing is a reassuringly slow process using pressure, not heat, to create a superior product. Oxidation is minimal so more natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes are retained. Pulp is removes and all that’s left is crisp, vibrant juice. Our nut milks (POW and REV) are simply blended with filtered water to create a rich, creamy base. Delicious ingredients are then added to create our unique formulations.


Once bottled, sealed products are submerged in vats of cold water where high pressure (again, no heat!) is exerted. This method is called High Pressure Processing or HPP. Microbes and pathogens can’t survive in this environment and the added benefit of this process is shelf-life extension. Flavour and nutritional integrity from the important stage of cold pressing remain intact.


What is the shelf life of your products?

VUnopened and stored chilled, our juices and shots are good until the date printed on the bottle. You can expect around 14 days for ZEN, SPA, ZAP, ZIP + FAB, and around 7 days for POW + REV. Consume within 24 hours once opened and always keep refrigerated. Our supplements are ambient. Check the bottle for shelf life.


Are your juices and shots meal replacements?

Our range has been designed to provide additional supportive nutrients to help your body thrive and work alongside a balanced eating regime. They are not intended to be meal replacements.


Are your products suitable for vegans?

All our juices, nut milks, shots and supplements are 100% vegan and plant-based with the exception of the FAB shot, which includes high-grade marine collagen.


Are your products free from gluten and dairy?

Yes, all are juices, nut milks, shots and supplements are free from gluten and dairy.


Are your products suitable for people with allergies?

We would advise you to check the nutritional information listed under each product, where you’ll find a full list of ingredients, allergens and our allergy statement.


Why has my juice separated?

All our juices and shots are natural – free from stabilisers, chemicals or nasties – just give them a shake!


Is there sugar in your juices?

At JUNIUS we don’t add any sugars to our drinks. The naturally occurring sugar in our juices and shots is purely from the juice we extract from the vegetables, fruit and herbs that make up our recipes. With the exception of our POW nut milk where we’ve added honey.


Are your juices pasteurised?

Never! We use a process call HPP - High Pressure Processing. Once bottled we carefully place our juices in a vat of cold water and apply extremely high levels of pressure to remove potentially harmful bacteria, therefore extending shelf life without the use of preservatives. All the vitamins, minerals and enzymes found in our juices remain intact using this method.


Are your products suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women? 

Our range has been designed to ensure that you can choose with the utmost confidence. Honesty and clarity are important to us. We include non-mandatory allergy and pregnancy warnings to ensure that you have all information at your fingertips. Check the Nutritional Information tab for each product on our website to find out more.

What if I’m not at home?

It’s very important that once received, your chilled bottles are removed from the delivery box and refrigerated as soon as possible. They will come with an ice pack so can be left in a designated safe place or with a neighbour, however we would advise that you are available to accept goods at your allocated delivery window.


PACKAGING FAQ:


Is your packaging recyclable?


Yes, this is really important to us. Our bottles are made from recycled plastic, as glass bottles aren’t compatible with HPP, a process we use to kill off potential harmful pathogens found in natural juice (see our ‘Why cold pressed’ section for more information).


We strive to do the best for the environment and we are always on the lookout for ways to improve our packaging. As it stands, and after much research, compostable packaging (PLA) isn’t a viable option as they can complicate the problem rather than solving it. Most recycling centres and landfill sites can’t process PLA. We eagerly await the plastic industry to come up with better solutions. Our deliveries are made in cardboard boxes with paper liners, both of which are kerbside recyclable.
