Juices, whether it be carrot, beet, or apple are in some shape or form good for you, but what makes “cold-pressed” any better than your typical juice? Traditional juicers use fast-spinning blades that tear apart the produce, this action heats the produce up and adds air.
Heat and air are two things that diminish how many nutrients your juice has. With cold-pressed juicing, they extract juice by pressing and grinding the fruit, without adding heat, giving the name “cold-pressed”.
With that being said, we thought we’d round up a few of the top juice bars in NYC and tell you a little more about them.
