How are Juice Plus+ Essentials Fruit, Vegetable, and Berry Blend Capsules Made?
We are crazy about fruits, vegetables and berries.
Our goal is to give you the best that fresh, ripened fruits, vegetables and berries have to offer. This is how we do it!
Step 1: We love our farmers.
We partner with family farmers, who take pride in their seeds, fields and orchards, growing the amazing fruits, vegetables and berries that go into our capsules.
Step 2: Our farmers harvest at the peak of ripeness.
We wait until mother nature has done her job and allow the fruits and vegetables to ripen. By harvesting the fully ripened produce, we capture the maximum nutrition possible.
Step 3: The “quick freeze.”
If our farms aren’t close enough to where we make the capsules, we take that wonderfully ripened produce and give it the “quick freeze”, also known as IQF (individual quick freeze) by the product nerds. This ensures we don’t lose any valuable nutrients along the way as we prepare for the next step.
Step 4: Create fruit, vegetable and berry powders.
We selected 30 different fruits, vegetable and berries for our three blends. We juice the whole fruit, vegetable or berry, including peels, leaves and seeds whenever possible, to harvest the greatest amount of nutrients. We dry to remove water and create the colorful powders.
Step 5: Protect the plant-based goodness.
The powders are kept in a vegan capsule and preserved in special bottles that keep it protected from moisture and oxygen, ensuring that it stays fresh from our storage facility and all the way to your door.
Et Voilà! (And there you have it!)
Beautiful fruit, vegetable and berry capsules to help you build a solid nutritional foundation!
