The number of companies selling juices and raw foods has exploded in recent years. But not all of these products are created equal. Here’s what makes the products from Viva Raw different.
WE START WITH THE BEST INGREDIENTS.
Viva Raw products are made from the freshest fruits and vegetables available. Our juice selections change with the seasons, reflecting our commitment to sourcing only the freshest ingredients from a network of local farmers.
ALL OF OUR INGREDIENTS ARE RAW.
The modern diet is loaded with rich caloric content but often does not provide the body with enough of what it needs to repair and maintain itself. Raw fruits and vegetables contain beneficial enzymes, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals that are sometimes altered, lost or degraded by cooking. Including them in your diet can help protect against chronic illness, boost your immunity, and improve your overall health and wellbeing.
Our raw foods are carefully crafted from organic ingredients using a process that preserves their natural enzymes and their alkalinity, a potentially important support for a modern diet rich in acidic foods.
The magic number is 118°. When foods are heated past this temperature, certain enzymes that are beneficial to the body can be altered or destroyed. Our approach prevents this from happening and protects the natural benefits and beauty of the Viva Raw foods you will enjoy.
OUR JUICES ARE TRULY FRESH.
Our juices are cold-pressed, unpasteurized, and transported in a constantly chilled environment to make them as nutrient-dense as possible. Juice from other brands or those made at home are sometimes made using a centrifugal juicer, which can cause the juices to oxidize quickly and thus result in a loss of valuable enzymes and vitamins.
Other brands use a process called high-pressure pasteurization (HPP). This process destroys harmful microbes, allowing the juices to remain on the shelf for weeks instead of days. However, certain nutrients inside those bottles will degrade over time even if the product is shelf-stable. Our juices are truly fresh; we have built our approach around preserving as much of the original nutritional content as we can.
Our process also preserves some of the pulp, providing a dose of fiber that is uncommon in many other brands.
EVERYTHING WE USE HAS A PURPOSE.
Every ingredient we use plays an active role in supporting your health; we don’t add it unless it does. While this means our products may have a shorter shelf life, it also means we don’t add unnecessary stabilizers or preservatives.
WE MAKE THE RAW LIFESTYLE CONVENIENT.
We know how busy life gets. How easy it can be to accidentally put your own wellbeing last. So we make the raw lifestyle delicious and convenient, with pickup locations throughout the Charlotte area and delivery to your home or office.
Our raw juices and foods can be enjoyed individually or as part of a cleanse program. Either way, your body will benefit from the boost inside the bottle.
