SaraFresh juice is always cold-pressed (a method of juicing that enables juice to be bottled without preservatives and still maintain a 5 day shelf life). Our hydraulic cold-press method of juice extraction minimizes air intake, which results in very slow oxidation or decomposition of vital enzymes. The tremendous pressure exerted by our juice press gently and completely extracts the natural fruit sugars, vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes, and other vital elements, leaving very little pulp behind (which we compost). Cold pressed is different from household juicers, typically ‘rotary’ or ‘centrifugal’. As the blade inside a centrifugal juicer spins at a high speed, it generates heat. The heat oxidizes and separates nutrients naturally found in the whole fruits and vegetables, rendering the nutrients that make it into the juice less pure. Juice made at home (unless on a Norwalk) must be consumed immediately.
SaraFresh is committed to inspiring healthy living and education around the benefits of consuming a plant based diet. We have an in-house dietician, as well as athletes and doctors that collaborate with us to insure our products provide your daily needs of macronutrients, including protein. We are currently on site at the downtown Sarasota farmer’s market every Saturday from 7-1; visit our calendar to locate us around town throughout the week. If you want juice, we will get it to you!
While creating raw food and juice for clients of Two Girls Food in 2011, Lynn experienced, first hand, the benefits of incorporating fresh green juice in her diet as well as periodic juice ‘cleansing’. After immersing herself in the Los Angeles juice culture, she learned the importance of cold-pressing juice for maximum nutrient and enzyme health benefits. Upon her return to Florida in 2013, with Norwalk juicer in hand, Lynn launched SaraFresh Juice, a name chosen to reflect her value around supporting the local Sara-sota community. Her delicious creations include grab-and-go organic juices, superfood smoothies, raw food and juice cleanses.
The juices that Lynn makes are totally based on seasonal veggies; she partners with as many local farmers as possible, namely Chris and Eva Worden from Worden Farms. The Wordens have been tremendous supporters and mentors to Lynn, while supplying SaraFresh with the most beautiful, tasty organic produce available. Lynn worked in their farm stand for three years prior to opening her own booth and launching SaraFresh.
