Is it organic?

Wherever possible, we go for organic ingredients. With all these fresh nutrients buzzing through your veins you wouldn’t want chemicals to be in there too. Unfortunately some ingredients have no certification such as salts, or some of the herbal powders we use. A problem that also occurs on rare occasions is non availability of produce in the organic shops, so we have turn to other alternatives such as ‘Milieukeur’ or produce of a farmer which is still in transition to organic.

Is it fresh upon delivery/sale?

We make our juice daily, shipping it to the shop the same day. This makes for a super fresh juice ready for you to grab in our shop!

Does our fruit and juice contain gluten?

All the food made by JuiceBrothers does not contain gluten. It could be that some traces of gluten are present because foods like oats are often produced alongside food containing gluten.

What about nuts or dairy? Is it vegan?

None of our products contain dairy, since all our foods are plant-based. So no meat, fish or eggs either. We do use honey in some of our recipes. Some of our products contain nuts, we will always list them! Please make sure you know which these products are. All of our products can contain traces of nuts because they are made alongside products containing nuts.

What sweeteners do you use?

Our juices have no additional sweeteners in them. We have combined the ingredients of our juices in such a way that they do not need anything besides fruit and vegetables. Some of our other products do have sweeteners though, like our mylks, salad dressings and desserts. Here we choose for natural sweeteners only, as unprocessed as we can find. Like honey, maple syrup, agave syrup coconut blossom nectar and stevia. These sweeteners have a lot lower glycemic index (GI) than processed sweeteners like sugar and they still possess their vitamin and mineral content, so they offer more than just sweetness.

What is the glycemic index (GI) of your juice, will it upset my blood sugar levels?

Our juice has no fiber, this makes it easily assimilated by your body and brought into your blood and lymph system. This way, your cells are supplied with the micronutrients they need to perform a dizzying array of bodily functions. This includes the natural sugars in fruits and vegetables. That’s why we add the greens! Greens have a low GI and contain very few carbohydrates. This means they will not cause a sudden spike in your blood glucose. Keep in mind that juicing facilitates the bioavailability and so is likely to make the GI of vegetable juice a bit higher than the whole vegetable still.

What is Alkaline water and why do you use it?

Alkaline water is water that has been made alkaline, by using the Kangen water system. This is a machine that filters the water and guides it past platinum plates, which changes the Ph value of the water. A Ph of 7 is ‘ neutral’, we provide you with water that has a Ph of 9,5. Your body needs to maintain a Ph value between 7.35 and 7.45 in the blood, in order to function. Nowadays, it’s under constant influence of acidic aspects like pollution and the food we eat. Almost all the food we eat makes our body more acidic, except fruits and vegetables. To help our bodies maintain it’s needed Ph value, we use the alkaline Kangen water. This way our body gets less acidic influences and thus has to spend less effort maintaining it’s well needed balance between Ph 7.35 and 7.45
