Judging the Competition

While at Whole Foods I picked up one of their fresh pressed raw juices. While it didn't taste anything like ours and had different ingredients I would like to comment on a something. I really should be comparing WF juice to our Recipe #2, however I don't have any more here in my hotel room, and there isn't much difference in the color between the two.

If you notice Raw Generation juice is darker than the Whole Foods juice. That means more greens! When you are drinking a green juice you want it to be dark green right? Notice the number of  dark green ingredients in each!

Whole Foods Ingredients:

  • apples
  • spinach
  • cucumber
  • celery
  • parsley
  • lemon
  • lime
  • ginger
Raw Generation Ingredients:
  • wheatgrass
  • kale
  • spinach
  • collards
  • Swiss chard
  • apples
  • lemon
And the color difference... both in frosted bottles.

When you are buying green juices, look at the ingredients. A lot of the juice companies that are popping up pack majority of the bottle with fruits/vegetables that put off a lot of juice like apples, cucumber, celery. While we use apple juice in our recipe #2, half of the bottle is filled with juice of 5 dark greens leafy vegetables: wheatgrass, kale, collards, spinach, and Swiss chard. 

Whole Foods juice: $5.45 (2 greens)
Raw Generation juice: $4.99 (5 greens)

There you have it! You get more greens with Raw Generation juices.
