Until the other day Coldpress smoothies had been one of the more successful random juices that I’ve bought as part of the juice experiment – specifically the Coldpress Raspberry, Pear & Apple Smoothie.
It is 65% Apple Juice, 20% Pear Puree and 15% Raspberry Puree, they are also not pasteurised in the traditional sense (i.e. using heat) instead they use a process called High Pressure Processing (HPP), which is a cold pasteurization technique.
It was all very tasty at first and I was cheerfully drinking the stuff for several weeks working on the assumption that it was healthier than ‘normal’ juice.
Then I opened a bottle to find the inside of the lid covered in mould and the juice completely off – I rashly tried some and nearly threw up. I didn’t bother complaining to the manufacturer as nothing they could say would repair that kind of broken trust, I am going to call the juice experiment over – from here on out it is back to the major brands who can cope with proper pasteurisation techniques and longer term I’m getting a proper juicer.
