Evolution Fresh Cold-Pressed Green Juices Made from More Than a Pound of Vegetables

With the start of 2015 and an increasing number of people looking for ways to get vegetables into their diet[1], Evolution Fresh is offering four varieties of cold-pressed, high pressure processed (HPP) green juice that are made from more than a pound of green vegetables, have 10 grams of naturally occurring sugar or less per eight fluid ounce serving, and have no added flavors or sweeteners: Sweet Greens and Lemon, Essential Greens with Lime, Organic Sweet Greens and Ginger and Smooth Greens[2].

The broad selection of green juices are available to meet the needs of a significant number of consumers trying green juice – a recent Evolution Fresh survey reveals that 43 percent of people in the U.S. have tried green juice[3].

“As the demand for green juice continues to grow, we are set apart by what we put into the bottle– juice made from the green vegetables customers want,” said Julie Key, brand marketing director, Evolution Fresh. “A product line-up of variety is essential and with the four cold-pressed green juices made from more than a pound of green vegetables, Evolution Fresh is giving people the goodness they expect from green juice.”

In fact, an Evolution Fresh study reveals that it’s what is inside the bottle that counts when it comes to green juice. Of those surveyed, 36 percent look for a vegetable as the first ingredient, 38 look for low sugar and 34 percent look for more vegetables than fruit.
