Finding a great organic juice is easier today than it was even five years ago, as there are a number of reputable organic juice companies to choose from. Consumers have realized the value of organic products for their and their family’s health. In turn, suppliers have been making more and more organic products available. So there has been something of a glut of organic juices on the market the past several years, making it difficult for juice buyers to determine which of the new products are worth trying. They are, after all, more expensive than their non-organic counterparts. You can pay a relatively large price just to try a new juice you may or may not like. There are, however, four great organic juice companies that everyone interested in organic food needs to try.
From its humble Wisconsin founding in 1988, Organic Valley has risen to become the largest provider of organic milk to the country. They have remained committed to ecological and economical sustainability, proving that there is a market for organic, healthy food. They have expanded beyond dairy products and have a line of produce, meat, and, of course, orange juice. Organic Valley uses a blend of Valencia and Hamlin oranges harvested from citrus groves they have been stewarding without synthetic pesticides since 1995.
Orange juice may be wonderful, but most people want a little variety with their breakfast. Providing juice squeezed from organic tangerines since 1995, Noble Juice has spread its wings and experimented with new flavors like orange, orange tangerine, grapefruit, and lemonade. They also have more exotic flavors like tangerine guava mango and blood orange, but they are not advertised as being organic. On the plus side, Noble Juice has discarded plastic bottles in favor of material made from degradable, renewable corn. This will also prevent toxins from the packaging to counteract the benefits of organic juice.
Elite Natural prides itself on its use of all natural, organic products without additives, preservatives, added sugars, artificial colors, or GMOs. Their juices are fresh (not from concentrate) and bottled with the pulp, which is the healthiest, most nutrient rich part of the juice. They have a wide variety of tempting choices, blending traditional with modern, like apple juice, honeydew melon, black mulberry, grape, pomegranate açai black mulberry, pear, pomegranate, pomegranate green tea, pomegranate acai tart cherry, and rose sherbet.
Working with a select group of organic farmers, Purity Organic had been marketing their produce for a while before they had the idea of using the fruit to make delicious, organic juices. They now market juice flavors like apple juice, lemonade, strawberry paradise, citrus passion, cranberry harmony, and tropical bliss. They also make a line of functional drinks to rival those vitamin-enhanced waters and sports drinks. Purity Organic enhances their water with organic juice and never add sugar or any other chemical additives. They add sea salt for needed electrolytes and organic maca for antioxidants. These functional drinks, in pomegranate blueberry, orange mango tangerine, and cranberry lime flavors, are fantastic alternatives to the dubious benefits of the other drinks on the market.
