Cold-pressing juice is a method of juicing that enables juice to be bottled (without preservatives) and still maintain a 3-5 day shelf life. Cold-Pressed juice starts out by using huge hydraulic presses that press fruits and vegetables through fine mesh getting nearly all of the juice out of the produce. For citrus, they use high speed extractors when the extraction process is done, you get naturally vibrant juice, that is bottled and high pressure processed.
