Malaysians are jumping on the “health nut” trend by going to the gym more often, getting into fitness and proper nutrition – all remarkable for a healthier lifestyle. So, when we heard about the current craze with cold-pressed juices, we thought why not list some of the best choices to cleanse your body of impurities and boost your immune system!
Apparently, the conventional juicing method involves cutting and grounding fruits by fast-spinning blades, and this coarse action terminates many of the vitamins and minerals in our juices. The procedure adds heat and exposes ingredients to air which cut down the percentage of vital nutrients. How cold-press works is that it’s a slow and careful process of hydraulically extracting fruit and vegetable essence, and the cold press juicers use just enough pressure to extract the juice while preserving its vitamins, enzymes, trace minerals and overall nutrients up to five times more than any other juicer. The juice won’t be exposed to oxygen, preventing dangerous bacteria from developing and also this preserves the pulp, therefore making the juice richer in fibre and protein.
It’s an intricate process with thousands of kilograms of pressure applied to extract every single gram of juice from the fruit. You can typically enjoy your cold pressed juice up to 3 days after extraction only, so remember to drink it fast and not leave it in your fridge for too long!
Here are some of our favourites in Malaysia: LifeJuice Co.
Founders, Dax, Roen and Juhn used to have their business meetings at juice bars instead of coffee shops and it wasn’t long before they started thinking about what was in their juice and questioning if they were truly “healthy”. So, they started juicing from home and sourcing the best ingredients, perfecting recipes and understanding the nutrition behind it. LifeJuice makes handcrafted cold pressed juices that are unpasteurized from 100% pure fruits and vegetables with no added sugar or preservatives, even colouring. You can taste the quality with every sip!
