Super juice information sheet
Super juices are made from ingredients that are especially nutrient rich and have strong anti-oxidant properties. A few examples of these ingredients are: pomegranate, elderberry, blueberry, blackcurrant, Acerola, Aloe Vera, Aronia or cranberry.
Each of these ingredients individually offers a variety of health benefits. The juice extracted can sometimes be acidic and for this reason they are often combined with sweeter juices such as apple juice in order to improve the taste. Alternatively the super juices can also be mixed with water.
Each of these ingredients is often referred to as a superfood because of their rich nutritional value and health boosting benefits. Some of the fruits are relatively rare and are not commercially available worldwide. Therefore being able to enjoy the fruit as a juice is a bonus as you get to benefit from the nutritional goodness without having to travel half way around the world to find the fruit.
Better health results from foods that are rich in nutrients and have strong anti-oxidative qualities. These super juices provide a convenient nutritional boost to ensure that you get the added vitamin and minerals you need to maintain good health even with a busy lifestyle.

The fruits are selected from orchards that use either organic or biodynamic farming methods to ensure that the fruits are free from artificial chemicals. The processing time is limited and the juice is bottled immediately after completing the cold pressing and flash pasteurisation process.
