How do I preserve my juices?

I’m thinking of just going and buying mason jars and juicing for the week ahead of time. I have heard so many things about how the juices lose nutrients, but realistically, it’s impossible to consistently juice everyday.

Answers below:

1, If you are wanting to do bulk juicing, your best bet is to get a masticating juicer like an Omega. The centrifugal juicers (Breville etc) aerate the juice and they begin to spoil very quickly. With a masticating juicer, you can juice ahead for 3 days or so as long as you keep the juice in an airtight container filled to the top. A week in advance...I have never been able to do that with success nor have I found that freezing the juices really works, either.

2, When you store your juice remember to fill the bottles/jars to the top before closing it. And they are good for 3 days in the refrigerator. You can also freeze your juice just remember to leave some room for ekspansion and the juice is good for a month.

3, You can also vacuum seal your juices. The main thing is to remove as much air as possible to prevent oxidation, so even in your mason jar, the juice should be filled to the very tippy top so that when you screw the lid, a bit overflows down the exterior of the jar.

Check out the pump n seal contraption. Also bed, bath, and beyond sells a jar that has a vacuum seal hole on top that uses a pump. Don't remember the brand.

Source: did a 100 day juice fast. Prepped juices only 3 days out max. Found that any more wasn't beneficial in my experience.

4, Fresh lemon and or vitamin c. (Food based) Extends the enzyme, juice life by 3/5 days refrigerated.
