What is Pressed Juice?
Juice in its purest form. No heat comes in to contact with the raw produce - it is pressed to retain the essential enzymes and vital micro-nutrients your body needs to be its best.
What is the difference between cold pressed and the juice I make at home?
The spinning blades in centrifugal juicers and blenders create friction, which generates heat. Oxygen also makes its way in, which separates the nutrients in the fruit and vegetables. This means it needs to be consumed immediately.
Cold pressed juice doesn't come in to contact with heat and experiences less oxidisation which means it retains its natural goodness from the fruit and vegetables for approximately 72-hours. Here at Pressed Earth, we are proud of our responsible juicing procedures ensuring that the entire process is conducted within a refrigerated room and with no UV light to minimise the breakdown of nutrients. We also work the night shift - we press your juices the night before delivery to ensure that they are as fresh and as nutritious as they can be.
How many kilojoules/calories are in my juice?
If this question caught your eye then you're missing the point of Pressed Earth. Our juice is about balance, energy, nourishment and enjoying an elixir of goodness; not counting calories. Nutritional information on each of our juices is available online and on the bottle.
How long will my juice last?
You juice will last approximately 72-hours if you keep it cold, however it's always best to drink it as soon as possible after opening. Each bottle has a use by date on it for your convenience.
Why does my juice separate?
Settle down... because that's what raw juice does! No preservatives or heat are added to our juice, so it will settle into its natural form, depending on the density of each ingredient. Give it a good shake before your enjoy it.
What is pasteurisation?
Pasteurisation is a process of partial sterilization, specifically one involving heat treatment or irradiation to inactivate certain enzymes and kill certain microorganisms. This extends the product shelf life which means fewer deliveries need to be made, which lowers costs. If we lost you amidst all the jargon then not to worry - none of this is applicable to Pressed Earth juice.
Are Pressed Earth juices pasteurised?
No. Adding heat would essentially make it a processed product, as it would alter its natural state and damage the nutrients that we are so careful to keep intact.
Can I drink the juices if I am pregnant?
This is an interesting question. Technically the answer is yes. It's really quite simple, we thoroughly clean the fresh fruit and vegetables and press them into juice. You do need to consult a doctor first and we advise against any extreme juice cleansing during pregnancy.
Are your juices gluten-free? What about vegan?
Yes and yes. There is no gluten found in fruit or vegetables, and no animal products are used.
What are the benefits of juice over whole fruit and vegetables?
We always recommend that you eat fruit and vegetables as part of a balanced diet. Juicing them just provides a convenient way for your body to receive all that good stuff when you're on the run or want to an extra boost of nutrients that are easily absorbed.
Is your juice organic?
Our juice is not 100% organic but we are constantly building relationships with growers and suppliers to move towards an organic model. We'll be sure to point out where organic produce has been used.
Do you deliver juice?
Yes, find our where and when here

What if I want to order a cleanse longer than 3 days?
Our raw juice lasts approximately 72 hours from pressing, this means we are only able to provide up to 3 days worth of juice at any one time. A cleanse longer than 3 days requires more than one delivery of juice and therefore requires more than one online order. Unfortunately it’s one delivery time & address per order.

Why and when should I do a cleanse?
At Pressed Earth we believe that a cleanse helps you get back on track if you are feeling a little out of balance. The juices provide an easy way for your body to absorb the nutrients in fresh fruit and vegetables; whilst giving your digestive system a rest and your body a chance to flush out impurities. It's also a great way to learn how your body reacts to a plant based diet.
What results can I expect from a cleanse?
There are many benefits of doing a cleanse, such as feeling lighter and more energetic, but at Pressed Earth we believe that most rewarding aspect of a juice cleanse is learning more about yourself and how your body responds to a diet of fresh fruit and vegetables. Think of a cleanse as a stepping stone.
Who can do a cleanse?
Almost anyone who is looking to grab a hold of their life and start feeling the way they should feel! We do not advise pregnant woman, lactating women or children to partake in cleansing. As with most things, if you have any doubts you should consult your doctor first. Children can add healthy juice to their diet rather than using it to substitute meals once naturally.
How do I customise my cleanse?
If you would like to hand pick your juices simply browse our juice menu and select your juices. Let’s assume you are looking to create something similar to our 3 day classic cleanse (6 juices per day) you’ll need to order 18 juices in total. You can choose your delivery date in the cart page. If you are new to juice cleansing we suggest you follow the classic cleanse daily structure of two greens and one of each fruits, roots, citrus and nuts.
What should I do with my empty bottles?
We would love to see your bottles re-used. We offer a 50c store credit for every bottle returned to our Claremont store. Alternatively, you can return your bottles to Leederville IGA or The Good Grocer in Applecross. Returning bottles means we can reduce our impact on the environment!
Don't our bodies cleanse naturally?
They certainly do - but in the crazy world we live in they struggle to keep up, which is why a cleanse does wonders to support our digestive systems when they need it most.
In what order should I drink my juices?
We include a suggested order with our cleanses, based on what works for us. We also believe that a bit of spontaneity never hurt anyone - so feel free to mix it up and let us know what works best for you.
Can I do a cleanse while on medication or antibiotics?
Possibly - but run it past your doctor first to make sure, as some medication requires food to improve absorption.
Will I feel deprived of anything, light-headed or sick during the cleanse?
Your body is getting the nourishment it needs from the juice, but everyone responds differently to cleansing and you may feel light-headed or have a headache as you adjust to the change.
Can I exercise during the cleanse?
Absolutely, a light sweat can help you eliminate toxins, but don't overdo it. Yoga is also a great option as it clears your mind as well as relaxing your body.
How often can I cleanse?
Monthly, quarterly or ad hoc - it's completely up to you, just listen to your body and remember that having a juice as part of your daily routine is a great way to maintain balance.
What happens if I want to eat solid food?
You are very likely to experience cravings - but a big part of this is habit - especially when socialising and smelling wafts of aromatic food, which gets your taste buds going. This is where mind over matter comes in - stay focused so that you can really enjoy the benefits of the cleanse.
Can I still smoke/drink during the cleanse?
We hope you know the answer to this one!
Shouldn't I be consuming fibre?
During a cleanse we want to give your body a real break and let it focus on detoxing and healing... extra fibre is just something else for it to digest and think about. Keep things simple and stick to the juice.
Where will I get my protein?
From the vegetables in our juice. Have a look at the nutritional information on each bottle if you're still sceptical.
Should I take my daily vitamins(s)?
Nope - there are more than enough in all our juices. Find your balance naturally.
