FAQ

Juices are becoming a true hype in everyday life, following the trend of consumers wanting for quality convenience products, compensating the current lifestyle with so little time to take in a sufficient amount of nutrients.

We are happy you want to learn more about JusRé. It means JusRé appeals to people that are mindful about their decisions.

We aim to answer those questions we have been asked most frequently and which are most pertinent. In case you cannot find the information you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us via hello@jusre.be.


 

How many 250ml bottles of JusRé am I allowed to drink in one day?

We are strong advocates of a balanced diet. Anything goes, but in moderation. A general rule of thumb is to consume 5 pieces of fruit and/or vegetable per day. Since all ingredients are clearly listed on our packaging, you can easily use this as a guideline.

What is the difference with conventional juices on the market today?

The main difference is our Cold Pressing technique. Cold pressed juices are the healthiest. When a blender or centrifuge is used, a lot of vital elements are lost in the process. Also important is the absence of any preservatives. All ingredients are easily readable on the label: apple, pear, courgette, celery, carrot, mint, orange, beetroot… E-numbers are completely out of bounds. Also try to avoid products that have been sterilised or (flash) pasteurised (which you can see on the packaging), since these techniques actually kill off so many valuable nutrients. It can also affect the taste, hence why in most cases processed sugars will have been added. 

Can I keep JusRé outside of the fridge?

JusRé always has be stored cold, between 0 and 7°C, depending on how you like it. Our juices are at their best straight out of the fridge!

There is some sediment in my bottle

Natural juice has sediment. It might not look that appealing, however, it doesn’t affect the taste nor the nutritional value. Rather the contrary: it is a sign of how fresh the juice is.

Just give the bottle a good shake to wake up the vitamins. Enjoy! 

Why are cold pressed juices more expensive than other juices in the supermarket?

Cold Pressing is a slow and significantly more labour-intensive process than any other juicing process. Luckily we are using a semi-industrial machine, allowing us to keep the price at bay.

Where does JusRé buy its ingredients?

Each JusRé flavour is tested and evaluated on taste and nutritional value. Based on these outcomes, we will decide where to buy our ingredients, depending on the time of the year.

We only use fresh produce, so the taste might change over the course of the harvest period. We endeavour to buy locally as much as possible, but for more exotic fruits (i.e. oranges) we scout suppliers in Southern Europe.

Is JusRé suitable for children?

Yes, absolutely. My own children (Jules & Renée) love it. Many mums are happy their children get their portion of healthy fruits and vegetables without any quibbles, because it all tastes so good and looks so colourful. The fact that it’s healthy, is a great bonus.

What is the difference between a juice and a smoothie?

In general, juices are runnier than a smoothie. Juice and pulp are separated, making the juice a concentrated powerhouse of nutrients. The advantage is that its content is easy and quick to absorb. Your body doesn’t have to work as hard to digest and can save energy for i.e. detoxing. That is why juices are often used in a detox cure.

A smoothie is a thicker substance and will make you feel fuller for longer than juice does. All ingredients are mixed in a blender, for a drink more fibrous than juice, filling you up more. The disadvantage however is that part of the nutrients remains on the fibres and leave the body without being absorbed.

How do I order via the web shop?

We want the best for your health and meanwhile stay mindful of our beautiful nature! That’s why we set up a collaboration with eFoodBox, to deploy a returns system for the cool boxes. Secondly, this allows us to combine logistics with regular transport. For every order over 72 euros, we even cover the transport costs. Since we are aware our clients are rather active people, you can choose the moment of delivery that fits you best (morning, afternoon or evening). Our loading days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so we deliver orders from the web shop on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  

Why are juices so often used to detox?

With cold pressed juices, juice and pulp are separated, turning the juice into a proper nutrients concentrate which is easily absorbed by the body, leaving plenty of energy for other processes such as detoxification.

Why no glass bottles?

The HPP (high pressure processing) process doesn’t allow the use of glass bottles, as the high pressure would break it.

Also, we assume our clients lead an active lifestyle; juices are being taken along on the bike or in the car. Once the juice has been drunk, the bottle enters the conventional waste disposal process. PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is easily recyclable. In fact, recycling PET requires less energy than recycling glass. Our bottle also consists partly of recycled material. Choosing the type of bottle has been a conscious decision.

HPP is nog eerder nieuw naar toepassingsgebied, op dit ogenblik komen sappen, gesneden fruit en groeten, vis en schaaldieren, koelverse soepen en vleeswaren, sauzen en babyvoeding in aanmerking. Het is een duur procédé omwille van de handelingen in het productieproces maar mogelijks wordt dat in de toekomst verder ontwikkeld waardoor de prijs gedrukt kan worden en ook de toepassingen en de volumes zullen toenemen.

What is HPP?

HPP is short for High Pressure Processing, also known as Pascal Processing or Pascalizaiton. This is a rather revolutionary method to prolong the shelf life of fresh juices up to 25 days, without losing any of their nutritional value or taste of the ingredients. Developed in Japan at the start of this century, this technique became commercialised in the US in 2005 and has reached Europa recently as well. Numerous analyses were carried out to test taste, colour and even more so nutrients preservation. The results are astonishing and the many advantages of this method make it even more popular. When the juice has been won through cold pressing, you end with a juice that is simple super healthy. Hey, it’s JusRé!

HPP is currently being applied for juices, cut fruit and vegetables, fish and crustaceans, fresh soups, sliced cold meats, sauces and baby food. It is in fact a rather pricey method because of all the handling during production. This will no doubt become more fine-tuned in the near future, reducing the cost and increasing its applications and volumes.

Is HPP eco-friendly?

HPP uses 80% less energy than pasteurisation. Moreover, logistics are less intense than with ultra-fresh juices (2 to 4 days) since less deliveries are required.

Is HPP or Pascal Processing safe?

For just a short time, all ingredients are being put under high pressure, but all nutrients remain intact, so there is no need to add any preservatives. HPP also eliminates growth of any bacteria and fungi, so our juices are safe to drink for elderly people, children and pregnant women.

What is pasteurisation?

Pasteurisation is based on heat, which eradicates all fungi, yeasts and bacteria. Afterwards there is no need to keep the product refrigerated, extending its shelf life from a couple of months to even years. However, pasteurisation also kills the living vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Sadly most of the juice market is dominated by pasteurised juices.
