What is the difference between cold-pressed and conventional juice?
Cold press juicers extract juice from produce using a hydraulic press which is a slow controlled extraction process. This ensures that the vital enzymes, nutrients and minerals stay intact. This extraction method is still regarded as the best in the world. It’s all in the method, as the fresh fruit and vegetables are, as the name suggests, “pressed” so the maximum amount of nectar is extracted from the pulp and fibre, leaving a raw and fresh juice.

Why does the juice separate after being left in the fridge overnight??
LeafyBox juices are produced using the freshest ingredients, with no colouring, additives, sugar or water. Without addition of additives, the natural separation or settling process cannot be avoided. All you need to do is to shake your juices before drinking them.
“The juice must be pressed from the resultant pulp by a hydraulic or equivalent pressure. Otherwise, the vitamins, the enzymes, and the entire volume of vital elements of the vegetables are not likely to be found in the juice. It is important to drink fresh juices, and also eat raw foods, since they act as an intestinal broom. However, solid food requires many hours of digestive activity before its nourishment can become available to the cells and tissues of the body. The benefits of pulp - free juice are immediate.”
