About Raw Generation:
“Never Heated, Pasteurized, or Pressurized (HPP)
Raw Generation Juices NEVER heated, Pasteurized, or Pressurized (HPP). Our juices are NEVER exposed to heat of any kind…they are truly 100% raw. Flash freezing is the best way to preserve vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and micro flora without effecting taste or nutritional value.
Any form of Pasteurization, including High Pressure Pascallization (HPP), lowers the nutritional value of foods by raising temperature. Don’t be fooled by claims of “Gentle Pasteurization” either… that’s marketing hype to disguise the fact that the product has been heated.
Our juices are made with 100% fruit and vegetable juices. We never add water so you can be assured you are getting the maximum amount of nutrition in each bottle.
No Harsh Chemicals Used
We use a safe and natural cleaning solution of water and vinegar to wash our fruits and vegetables. No harsh chemicals are used. What would be the point of drinking our juice if it were filled with a chemical residue?
No Preservatives or Additives
That means absolutely no chemicals, additives, preservatives, dyes, flavors, etc, etc. Nothing is added to our juices. Our ingredients are picked out of the ground or off a tree- fruits and vegetables ONLY!
Separation is Natural
Since our juice is freshly made with no fillers, binders, or chemicals it will naturally separate. Just give it a good shake before you are ready to drink it and it’s ready to go. This juice settles. You shouldn’t.
We purposely stopped using clear bottles. Why you ask? Because clear bottles let in sunlight that destroys the nutrients faster than in opaque bottles. The choice was simple! We’re using opaque bottles so our juices stay as fresh as possible so you can get what you are after… high quality nutrition to help you lose weight and feel great!
BPA-Free Plastic Bottles
We use BPA free plastic bottles. You are drinking our juice because you want the health benefits right? So why would we sell it in a plastic leaching bottle? Plus, you can take these bottles anywhere! Rest assured that you are drinking nothing but juice from fruits and vegetables.”
In regards to the quality of the ingredients, I learned this about Raw Generation’s fruits and veggies:
“We purchase all our fruits and vegetables from a local wholesaler. Are products come from all over some local some not so local. We triple wash everything we produce to insure we remove any residue.”

“Packed with the cleansing nutritional power of leafy spinach, kale, and collard greens, this specially formulated juice also includes bright notes of lemon and apple for a clean, sweet taste.

“Our Elizabeth blend brings you a daily dose of our soothing and stimulating green juice blend. The result helps rid your body of harmful toxins while promoting optimal health you can feel from the inside and see on the outside.
Hydrating cucumber and aloe invigorate and refresh your vital organs and tissues, while the enzymes in sweet, ripe pineapple support optimal health and digestion.

“Replenish important vitamins & minerals with the delicious and filling juice. This nutrient-rich juice blends fruits and vegetables has absolutely no preservatives or added sugar.
The Carolyn contains apples, high in beta-carotene, malic acid, and vitamin C. The beets within the beverage boost fiber, folic acid, iron, magnesium, potassium, and vitamins A, B, and C. Carrots are high in B vitamins and Folate.

“This juice quenches thirst and packs a powerful punch of antioxidants with a blend of carrot, ginger, and fresh squeezed orange juices. Not only does the juice help rid your body of toxins found in many of the foods you eat, it also provides your cells with components that help them heal and rebuild.
Ginger, a root rich in anti-inflammatory properties, gives the juice a little kick. The carrots are high in B vitamins, beta-carotene, and vitamin A (great for a healthy liver) and vitamin C. Oranges have a long list of nutritional benefits, such as being high in C & B vitamins, phytochemicals (powerful antioxidants).
INGREDIENTS: orange juice, carrot juice, & ginger juice.”
I was really looking forward to trying Raw Generation juices after reading the story of how it all started. Moreover, I thought it was neat that they have a juice called “Jessica”–even though it has one too many “s” 😉
I really enjoyed the juices in regards to their flavor profiles and combinations. I like that “Elizabeth” contains aloe vera juice, “Cecelia” is a bright, orange smack-in-the-face, “Carolyn” gives you the hearty, robust goodness of beet juice, & “Jessica” loads you up with a bunch of leafy greens.
The creativity with the bottling (and using BPA-free bottles) along with the use of ultra-healthy ingredients like kale, ginger and aloe vera make me a fan of these juices. However, it’s hard for me to REALLY get on board with a brand that does not strive to always use organic ingredients.
I understand it is a much more costly route to creating juice. But, I always believe that proper and adequate nutrition is worth every dollar. Thus, I’d really be happy to continually support Raw Generation if they started using all organic ingredients. For that matter, indicating that the juices contain non-gmo ingredients would be a good first step in the right direction. For me, it’s hard to justify buying these cleanses when there are several other brands who make organic juice cleanses for about the same price.
I also get that it may be shocking to see such an unfavorable review for juice that is entirely made of fruits and vegetables. What can I say, my standards are very high. I aim for organic juice whenever possible (it’s always possible) 🙂
