Biotta are proud to have specialised in producing organic, freshly pressed carrot juice since 1957. Made from premium Thurgau carrots, this satisfying drink has a number of impressive health benefits to offer. Especially rich in beta-carotene, an important precursor to vitamin A, carrot juice helps to support the maintenance of mucous membranes, for example in the respiratory tract, and acts as an antioxidant to help protect the skin1 and cells of the cardiovascular system2 from oxidative stress.
Biotta Carrot Juice is 100% pure, not-from-concentrate pressed carrot juice. Each bottle contains the juice of 8 organic carrots and there are absolutely no added extras. It boasts an impressive range of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Biotta Carrot Juice is lacto-fermented which supports the production of naturally occurring, gut-friendly L+ lactic acid.
Those with diseases of the pancreas, liver or intestines should approach carrot juice with caution.
Although generally relatively low in sugar, vegetable juices lack fibre which helps slow the release of naturally occurring sugars into the system. Those with diabetes should be prepared to take the natural sugar content of vegetable juices into account.
Yes, all the Biotta juices are Swiss organic, EU organic as well as USDA approved organic.
Biotta’s juices are never from concentrate, what does this mean?
Juices made from concentrate have water extracted from the fruit or vegetable to produce a fruit/vegetable concentrate. This concentrate is easier to transport, and can be stored for longer, as its high fructose content acts as a preservative. When it reaches its destination, the concentrate is then diluted with water and bottled as juice. This has little in common with pressed juice because valuable nutrients (and sometimes even the aroma!) can easily be lost during this process. As a result of this, Biotta does not use concentrates and only offers premium freshly pressed juices as opposed to reconstituted concentrates.
Why are Biotta juices lacto-fermented?
The process of fermentation allows foods to safely stay edible longer. Lactobacillus bacteria are found on the surface of all plants and have the ability to convert naturally-occurring sugars and starches quickly and easily into lactic acid. The lactic acid acts as a natural preservative that is able to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria.
Beyond preservation advantages, lacto-fermentation also increases or maintains the vitamin and enzyme levels, as well as digestibility, of the fermented food, and is beneficial for gut health.
