Cold-pressed juice refers to juice that uses a hydraulic press to extract juice from fruit and vegetables, as opposed to other methods such as centrifugal or single auger.
Cold pressed juices of this type tastes fresher and contains more nutrients than pasteurized juices.
Making cold-pressed juice is a two-step process, the first stage is to shred the fruits and vegetables into a pulp. Typically the shredding process uses a steel rotating disc, produce is loaded into a large hopper feeding tube and typically falls into a filter bag. The second process is the hydraulic press, this exposes the shredded produce to extreme pressures between two plates. The pressure causes the juice / water content from the produce to drip into a collection tray below, leaving behind the fibre content in the filter bag.
This type of juice has been commercially produced for decades, but has gained a lot of popularity in the last 5 years.

Phytonutrients aren’t essential for keeping you alive, unlike the vitamins and minerals that plant foods contain. But when you eat or drink phytonutrients, they may help prevent disease and keep your body working properly.
