Tips for Best Fruit Juices
Fresh fruits, bought that day, make the best fruit juices. Hit your local farmers market and get the best seasonal fruits available. Wash the fruits, dry them and juice them immediately in your home fruit juicer.
Freshly squeezed fruit juices are at their peak of freshness and potency and are most beneficial to diet and nutrition. Drink the fruit juices within 15 or 20 minutes of having juiced them.
Make your own juice with good for you fruits by sending it through a juicer. If you don’t own a juicer, blend those fruits for a good for you fruity treat! This may sound yucky but throw a carrot in with your fruits (in a blender or juicer), it will add much needed beta carotene and it actually tastes awesome in combination with the other fruits.
Now, it comes to decision making – how to select the best fruit juices laid down in the markets. Here are some choosing guidelines when purchasing fruit juices.
Select fruit juice made from 100% fruit juice and gone through the pasteurizing process. This is better than concentrated fruit juice. The way to identify whether it is pasteurized fruit juice or not is that the product must be refrigerated and its shelf life is short.
Genuine fruit juice is not clear like fruit juice made from concentrated fruit juice after it is poured in a glass and stay for a while.
Should not select fruit juice labeled as “Fruit Drink, Fruit Punch or Fruit Blend” because it contains very little amount of real fruit juice.
Should select a big-sized container because the amount of vitamin C in fruit juice will be more than that in a small container due to production process and packaging. Fruit juice in a small container will contact air; as a result, vitamin C can dissolve more easily than that in a big container.
Should select fruit juice free of sugar, syrup, artificial color or any preservative.
For fresh fruit juice sold by vendors or at the markets, it has not been pasteurized. If it has to be bought, one must be sure that the fruits and equipment are washed thoroughly before extracting the juice. The fruit juice must be chilled at all times.
Tip : Fresh fruit juice should be drunk immediately right after extracting. The leftover should be refrigerated less than three days at 2-4 ° C.

Kombucha is a microbiological food. It helps regenerate the bowel flora and is excellent for wellbeing.
Kombucha is a popular health promoting beverage and natural folk remedy made by fermenting tea. Kombucha is a colony or culture of yeast and other microorganisms embedded in a pure cellulose “pancake.” When the “pancake” is grown in a blend of tea and sugar, it transforms the liquid into a refreshingly lightly sparkling, sweet and sour drink with a fruity fragrance full of health giving acids and nutrients. The Kombucha culture feeds on the sugar and, in exchange, produces other valuable substances which change into the drink: glucuronic acid, glucon acid, lactic acid, vitamins, amino acids, antibiotic substances.
Kombucha tea has about 0.5% to 1% alcohol as do some fruit juices such as apple juice. Harold Tietze in his book KOMBUCHA, THE MIRACLE FUNGUS observes that Muslims and Buddhists drink it without concern. “Recovered alcoholics do not have to fear the small amounts of alcohol.” The Salvation Army is using Kombucha to help alcoholics.
