Frequently Asked Questions
Cold Pressing is a process that extracts juice, vitamin, minerals, enzymes and phytonutrients from fruits, vegetables and other plant-based foods (nuts and seeds). Jusu’s Cold Press Juicers use a tremendous amount of hydraulic pressure to very slowly extract the nectar from organic produce maintaining the integrity of its cellular structure. It is a much gentler and slower process where little to no heat is created specifically from the lack of the fast spinning blade included in other form of juicing. This results in a juice that is much healthier, richer in nutrition & with bright colours and superior crisp, clean taste.
Jusu Juices are not meant to replace your daily fruits and vegetables unless you are doing a 1, 2, or 3 day cleanse. Jusu Juices are meant to add into your eating program to give you high quantities of micronutrients (vitamins, minerals), enzymes and phytonutrients quickly. There are up to 6 pounds of produce (16-24 servings) in just one Jusu Juice. Try adding one or two Jusu Juices to your existing diet everyday for two weeks. You'll be pleasantly surprised by what the additional nutrition can do to your body.
We have gluten-free and glutinous products on our menu.
Our gluten-free products are handled specifically with “gluten-free” equipment. We have systems and processes in place and do the best we can to ensure no, or minimal, cross-contact. We have separate panini presses, cutting boards & utensils for each, although they are side-by-side. We do not use glutinous flour in our facilities so there is no air-borne gluten. If you have a severe gluten allergy please make wise choices keeping our processes and practices in mind.
We have a few items containing dairy although most of our menu is dairy-free.
Our juices are put through HPP (High Pressure Processing) as a final step after manufacturing to safely extend their shelf life without the use of heat or preservatives. High Pressure Processing (HPP) is an environmentally friendly, cold pasteurization technique that exposes food products to extremely high pressure transmitted by water., inactivating any bacteria, viruses, yeasts, moulds, and parasites that may be present in food.
Not all juices are created equal. Cold press juice is now considered the healthiest of all juices. Cold Pressed juice provides you with the highest quality, plant-based nutrition available. Jusu Cold Pressed Juice contains more vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants and enzymes than traditional centrifugal juicers. Jusu’s cold pressed juice also has a longer shelf life (refrigerator life) than centrifuged fresh juice. Centrifuge juice, although very healthy, creates heat due to a very fast spinning blade and the proteins within the juice start to break down. These juices should therefore be consumed within 30 minutes to get the nutritional benefits. Cold Pressed juice keeps its superior nutritional qualities and it’s fresh taste for up to 3 days prior to being put through the HPP process. We take great pride in providing you with the highest quality juice possible. We treat each and every juice like a work of art. It is our goal to improve people’s lives with our quality juices, but don’t believe us, try it yourself and see how you feel.
Jusu juices are nut-free, however they may be manufactured in a facility that also produces other products containing nuts.

Cleansing has many physical, mental and emotional benefits. Even if you are a pillar of health you still absorb toxins from the environment. The list of toxins we are exposed to every day is very lengthy from air born pollutants, to cleaning products, to skin creams and hygiene products & food additives. Cleansing gives you a chance to rid your body of these toxins so you can create a healthy internal environment making it more challenging for the creation of disease. It also gives your digestive system a vacation from the daily work you put it through. This allows your body the energy, usually used for digestion, to restore your cells and start to detoxify. Cleansing is an empowering way to get your motor running smoothly, efficiently and energetically.
It is always suggested to consult your doctor before doing a cleanse. As a precautionary statement, avoid cleansing if any of the following pertain to you; pregnant, nursing or trying to conceive, pre-diabetic or diabetic, children under 18, using prescription drugs (cleansing can affect the efficacy of some medications), have certain active cancers, have liver disease, have hepatitis, have bipolar disorder and/or have allergies to any of the cleanse ingredients. Your doctor will be able to advise you more fully.
The plastic bottles we use at Jusu Bar are BPA free and made from the most recyclable kind of plastic available (PET). They are much lighter to ship compared to glass, which decreases their overall carbon footprint.
Jusu translates from Japanese into ‘juice’.
