|Foodborne illness is often traced back to unpasteurized fruit or vegetable juices. Drinking bottled juices that are not pasteurized can pose serious health risks, especially to young children and the elderly who have reduced immune capacity. To protect the health of our customers, we use a process of UHT (ultra-high temperature) pasteurization. This process kills disease-causing microorganisms as well as, or better than, traditional methods and results in significantly fewer nutrient losses. UHT pasteurization heats juices to very high temperatures for only a few seconds, locking in flavor and better preserving beneficial nutrients. This exceptionally quick heating process minimally effects the nutritional value and taste of the juice while effectively destroying anything potentially harmful to the consumer.
