FAQ: Emma & Tom's Juices & Smoothies
How are your juices & smoothies made?
All our fruits are cold pressed, flash pasteurised (very short time) and cold filled at 4 oC. After bottling, the juices are kept refrigerated until you pick it up from the fridge at your favourite local café/store! This retains the true flavour and natural goodness of the fruit and provides a crisp, fresh juice that is as close to the original fruit as possible while eliminating food safety issues.
Is pasteurisation not bad for the juices?
In order to ensure a safe-for-consumption product, we need to somehow heat treat the product to kill harmful pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria that can cause foodborne illnesses and miscarriage in pregnant women.
Why Emma & Tom’s juices & smoothies and not others?
We use whole, real chunks of fruits with no preservatives, additives, artificial colourings, artificial flavourings and added sugar. Each bottle of the whole fruit smoothies range contains dietary fibre that provides about 20% of your daily fibre requirement and at least 2 portions of whole fruit.
Are your juices & smoothies vegan friendly?
All of our juices and smoothies are vegan, gluten free, and free from additives, preservatives, concentrates and added sugar.
Are your juices and smoothies kosher and halal certified?
Most of our juices are halal and kosher certified. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for confirmation of the product of concern.
Are your juices for weight loss?
Our juices and smoothies are not primarily designed for weight loss program or as a meal replacement. Our philosophy is to help all Australians look after themselves by offering nutritious minimally processed whole fruit products that taste great! We believe in moderation!
Why do the juices and smoothies have 90 days shelf life?
In our factory, everything is kept very clean. The facility is enclosed with positive pressure airflow just like in the hospital! This allows the air to flow out of the room instead of in, so that any airborne microorganisms (e.g. bacteria) are kept away. The bottles are also made on the line which means the bottles are sterile.
Are the juices and smoothies gluten free?
Yes they are!
