When we say that our juices are raw, we mean that nothing in them has been cooked, subjected to temperatures above 118F in the juicing process or pasteurized. Pasteurization or Flash Pasteurization is a process whereby something destined for human consumption (like juice, for example) is brought to a very high temperature for a short period of time, and then immediately cooled down. The idea is to kill off potentially harmful bacteria and to slow the microbial growth that causes things to go bad, thereby reducing the risk of contamination and increasing shelf life. Pasteurization kills off healthy life forms along with the harmful ones, reducing much of the juice the world consumes today to the fruit and vegetable equivalent of a zombie: a dead, soul-less shadow of its former self.
Pascalization, or high pressure processing (HPP), is an alternative to pasteurization. Instead of heat, this process uses pressure to stunt the growth of pathogens. During HPP, sealed plastic bottles of juice are placed in water, and 87,000 pounds of pressure is applied for approximately 80 seconds. This extends a juice’s best-before date from a few days to up to 90 days. Like pasteurization, this is a method of tampering with the natural life in juice; we’re not into that. Would you eat a cucumber 90 days after you cut it?
Instead of these methods, we harness the suns natural power and ultraviolet light to filter our juice. This reduces the ability for potentially harmful pathogens such as E-Coli, Listeria and Salmonella to reproduce. This process takes a matter of seconds and does not heat or otherwise disrupt juice from it's natural flow. Cheers to sunlight and nature.
Recycle them! Glass is recyclable an indefinite amount of times and the glass recycle rate is higher than any other packaging recycle rate in North America. All of our glass can be redeemed for CA CRV at a local recycle station.
Drinking out of glass reduces your footprint, our footprint and takes us towards a full permacycle system.
Solti is USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC: We believe that certified organic produce is the best choice for the health and safety of you and our planet.
Solti is COLD PRESSED: Solti uses a cold pressed method that is proven to yield 3-5x more nutrients than other methods. Slow pressing eliminates heat from the juicing process and decreases oxygenation in order to create better tasting, more nutritionally beneficial juices! This is different from conventional juicing methods (centrifugal) which move very quickly, leave much of the nutrients behind in the pulp, generate heat from high speed motors and introduce oxygen into the juice, all of which diminish it's nutritional profile. The cold pressed method used by Solti delivers maximum enzymes, vitamins and antioxidants through delicious tasting juice.
Solti is Simple & Convenient: The juices are packaged in reusable GLASS bottles, the most environmentally friendly form of packaging. We deliver to your door nationwide. Solti offers Superior Liquid Nutrition: Nearly each bottle of juice contains up to 3 lbs of 100% certified USDA organic produce! Before selling our first juice in 2014, we spent three years in research and development in our own production kitchen and consulting with the best food scientists in order to guarantee we are offering the most nutritionally balanced recipes that taste great!
We believe that certified organic produce is the best choice for the health and safety of you and our planet.
SUPERIOR NUTRITION: Organic produce touts between 30 - 40% higher nutrient density than conventional produce.
NATURAL: Non GMO, Pesticide and Chemical free - you drink more that 20 pounds of produce each day of the Cleanse. Consuming the same amount of conventional produce would expose you to a toxic level of pesticides, making for a very ineffective cleanse.
GOOD FOR THE PLANET: The philosophy of organic food production maintains principles of biodiversity, ecological balance, sustainability, natural plant fertilization, natural pest management, and soil integrity.
All of our organic, cold pressed juices and juice cleanses are:
