  1. I really like your site. Very informative and clear. I run a cold pressed juice company and was wondering why you don’t talk more about cold pressed vs. masticating and centrifugal juicing. Good topic for discussion.
    When testing smaller batches (80oz recipes) we use The Norwalk juicer. It masticates and then cold presses the juices.

    How long can I refrigerate each quart of juice? Can it be frozen?

    • Hi Kimberly. Depends on your juicer, if you have a masticating juicer then about 3 days. You can freeze your juices as well. Just make sure to store in proper freezing containers.

    Most of the juice recipes make a large amount and I see you use the mason jars for storage. How long will the juice last in the fridge in the mason jar? I know they loose some of their “oomph” after a little but so wasn’t sure how that works.

    Thanks!

    • Most recipes will make at least 1 quart (liter) of juice. I consume that in one sitting. If you’re using a masticating juicer like the omega 8005, juice will last up to three days when refrigerated.
