Juice Under Pressure
High Pressure Processing
We are committed to delivering you the most nutrient dense and delicious juice possible. To do so, we maintain the nutritional integrity of our juices, while killing potentially harmful bacteria through the revolutionary use of high pressure pascalization (HPP). HPP allows us to serve you the best quality juices with absolute confidence in their quality, safety and purity.
After the bottles are filled and capped, the bottled juice is placed into a pressure chamber filled with cold water for approximately 60 to 120 seconds. While in this chamber, extreme pressure (the equivalent of being submerged 20 miles beneath the ocean floor) is applied from all directions to the outside of the bottle, while the juice itself remains untouched.
Unlike heat pasteurization, HPP preserves the intense goodness of juice as nature intended. Traditional heat pasteurization destroys enzymes, can decrease vitamins and essentially cooks the juice.
Why It Works
Harmful invaders, which are a potential threat in all raw foods, such as Ecoli, Salmonella, and Listeria, are unable to survive under this extreme pressure. Additionally, shelf life shortening bacteria, such as yeast and mold, which are also present in almost all raw foods, are stopped dead in their tracks and killed off. BUT . . . vitamins, minerals and even enzymes can survive this pressure!
Innovation At Its Best
There has been lots of excitement in the juice world around the power of HPP and there has been an equal and perhaps more passionate amount of disbelievers. We decided to find out for ourselves. The result of our research was outstandingly in favor of the positive benefits of HPP. The comparative analysis of our juice before and after HPP validated that the juices retained vitamins and kept enzymes intact. The studies also confirmed that after more than two weeks, no bacteria had grown to dangerous levels as it would have in juice that had not undergone HPP.
We made the decision to use HPP in an effort to even further improve the safety, quality and superiority of Ritual Juices. Yes, it is an extra step that adds time and cost, but HPP is in line with our commitment to continuous innovation and improvement of our products for your wellbeing! With this in mind, the choice was clear.
Reality Of Living Food
The reality is that raw juice and other living foods slowly die. Bacteria is present on all living things and is part of what causes real food to deteriorate over time. HPP prolongs the life of living food by short circuiting bacteria, temporarily suspending the deterioration process which diminishes nutrient values. This innovative process allows you to drink Ritual Juice with the absolute confidence that you are feeding your cells the vitamins and enzymes which are essential to your vibrant health.
