Juicing is certainly a trend these days. Surely you've seen the packaged juice cleanses, the hip juice bars popping up in L.A., and the plethora of nutrient dense elixirs lining grocery store shelves. Way before it was the hip thing to do, the Bread Garden was juicing fresh produce and selling it at our original location. Way back in the day, we used a traditional juicer, or centrifugal juicer. These are the most common type of juicer. They utilize a fast-spinning metal blade that spins against a mesh filter, separating juice from flesh via centrifugal force. The juice and pulp are then separated into different containers. The problem with centrifugal juicers is that the fast-spinning metal blade generates heat, which destroys some of the enzymes in the fruits and vegetables you're juicing. The heat also oxidizes those nutrients, rendering less nutritious juice than a cold-press juicer.
These days, we use a Norwalk Hydraulic Cold-Press Juicer - basically, the Cadillac of juicers - and we're proudly the only place in town to offer fresh cold-pressed juice. Our cold-press juicer extracts juice by first crushing and then pressing fruit and vegetables for the highest juice yield. Because they produce a negligible amount of heat, they keep more of the fresh ingredients' nutrients intact, which is why you're drinking your greens in the first place, right? For the nutrients!?
Our selection of different juices ranges from your traditional Apple, Orange, or Grapefruit, to our House Favorite green juices like the Rise and Shine and MoMo. If you haven't tried our signature green juice, The MoMo, give it a shot. We think it's just as good as those fancy-pants juices you pay top-dollar for, but it's made right here in our kitchen.
