Press on Juice is Never Pasteurized

Kristin Rockwood, owner of Press On Juice, began juicing and adopting a plant-based lifestyle in 2012 to manage and improve rheumatoid arthritis. Those diet changes were life-changing and prompted her to begin selling her juices at local farmers’ markets. In addition to a diverse selection of fresh-pressed juices, the menu features salads, bowls and healthfy treats.

            Rockwood is a Traverse City native and graduate of TC Central who lives in Peninsula Township. She says, “Everything we serve is plant-based. We use no refined sugars, gluten, meat or dairy, but do use lots of fresh, raw fruits, veggie, nuts and seeds! You won’t find our juice in a grocery store. We refuse to high-pressure process our juice—which is a form of pasteurization for making juices last longer. We believe fresh and raw is best. Those pasteurized juices can still be a great option to get fruit and veg in your diet, but you’ll feel the difference when you drink our juice. Nothing compares to the healing power of our raw, cold-pressed juice.”
