Freshly juiced fruit and vegetables are extremely concentrated sources of nutrients. They are simply packed full of a whole variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients. As these nutrients come from a plant source, they are more recognised by the body and as a result more easily absorbed and put to good use.
Naturally occurring digestive enzymes are also made more available when the juice is extracted from a fruit of vegetable. They are normally entangled in the fibre matrix found in the whole food. So this also helps to explain why digesting and making use of the different beneficial components is easier when it comes to juices.
By freshly pressing fruit and vegetable juices we can ensure that as many nutrients as possible are retained. This is as opposed to juices made from concentrate which are basically deconstructed and reassembled, meaning unsurprisingly, lots of the natural goodness is lost along the way.
Biotta are also unique in that they allow their juices to lacto-ferment during the production process. This means lactic acid bacteria (naturally occurring on the surface of fruit and vegetables) can happily produce L+ lactic acid which not only helps to support the stability of the juices themselves, but also your gut flora as you drink them!
Fibre is an important part of a healthy balanced diet. Fibre is especially important for digestive health as it helps keep bowels moving, can help manage the absorption of carbohydrates and helps support healthy gut bacteria.
Fibre is found in whole fruit and vegetables (often in the skin) and wholegrain carbohydrates.
