FAQ

I'm not a mom, can I still drink your juice?

Absolutely. Our juices are healthy, nutritious, packed full of vitamins and lets not forget delicious. Even though the recipes are catered toward moms, anyone can enjoy an extra boost of iron, some assistance with their digestive tract or an anti-inflammatory infused cocktail. After all, if our juice is strong enough for a mom, then they are strong enough for you.

What is Cold-Pressed Juice?

The biggest benefit of cold pressing juice is slow or minimal oxidation/decomposition (or mixing of air with juices) during the grinding and pressing process. With a centrifugal or rotary blade juicer, the high speed blade applies heat to the fruits or vegetables going through, thus oxidizing and breaking down vital nutrients and enzymes quickly. This juice should be consumed within 15-20 minutes of making it. Conversely, our cold press juicer takes multiple steps to extract juice slowly and meticulously from the plant. After slow grinding (or triturating), the pulp falls into a filter bag and is then met with 110psi of pressure between two steel plates. This serves to gently and completely extract the natural fruit sugars, trace minerals, enzymes, vitamins and other vital elements. Cold pressing juice is the only method of juicing that enables juice to be bottled without preservatives and still maintain up to a 4 day shelf life.

What is the difference between Mama Juice and what I buy at the grocery store?

The juice you buy at the grocery store is pasteurized unless it is made onsite. During pasteurization, juices are heated up to 82 degrees Celsius, therefore leaving you to consume basically sugar and water. Heating food to 48 degrees Celsius or higher destroys the essential nutrients and enzymes that your body needs. Our Cold-Pressed juices are 100% raw, providing you with exactly what nature intended…an amazing burst of energy, healthy nutrients & live enzymes directly to your bloodstream, and heightened mental clarity.

What are the benefits of Cold Pressed Juice?

Cold-Pressed juice is a great way to give your body an energy boost and kick start your "insides". A quick and easy way to get the nutrients you need, wrapped up in a tasty, nutritious serving of vitamin enriched superfoods.

When should I drink my juice?

When you drink raw juice around 20-30 minutes before eating a meal, it will serve to help stimulate your body’s secretion of the digestive juices, serving as a great appetizer. Further, for maximum nutrient absorption, it's advised juices be consumed on an empty stomach.

Do you offer a recycling program?

Yes. Since we are using refillable glass bottles, we can pick them up when we deliver your next order. For each bottle that is returned to us, we will give you a $0.50 credit toward your next order. Please make sure the bottles have been rinsed and the lids have been properly recycled.

Can I drink your Cold-Pressed juices if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?

It is not advised for nursing or pregnant women to drink unpasteurized juices. Although many women do, we at Mama Juice Co. advise that you always consult with your health practitioner before making any changes to your diet while pregnant or breastfeeding. 

Further, if you have a pre existing health condition(s), or a weakened immune system, please consult with your doctor prior to making changes to your diet. 

Why is Mama Juice sold at a higher price than other juices?

But with the knowledge and education around what goes into that 473ml bottle of organic goodness, our loyal customer base agrees that our prices are not only fair, but warranted! We do not dilute our juice with water, ever. What you are receiving is 2-3 POUNDS of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs in a reusable glass bottle.

Should I keep my juices refrigerated?

Since our juices are raw, they are highly perishable. So long as the juice is kept cold (4 degrees or lower), it will last for up to 4 days. We do not add any additional preservatives or heat to treat our juices. We strongly suggest you drink it by the END of the date listed on the label. So please enjoy our juices CHILLED and make sure to stock up before you run out.

Why do you use glass bottles and are they recyclable?

Our decision to use glass was rooted in reusability. We knew our product was going to be part of a daily lifestyle for many, and throwing away plastic bottles is something we decided to stay away from. We want our customers to feel like they are doing their part when recycling their bottles. Please refer to our recycling program details above.

Do you cater private events?

Yes, we do! We would love to work with your office, team, group, party, company, etc. Please email us at info@mamajuiceco.com to find out about our Event & Catering Pricing.
