Our produce is stored in a temperature controlled, cold room immediately upon receipt. Before juicing, each item is cleaned of farm soils and then washed in ozonated water, a very powerful disinfectant. Ozonated water is created when a high voltage discharge splits an oxygen molecule (O2) into two atoms (O + O), which is combined with another oxygen molecule (O2) to form ozone (O3). When contaminants such as bacteria or viruses make contact with ozone, they are destroyed completely by oxidation. In so doing, that extra atom of oxygen is consumed and there is nothing left…no bacteria…no virus…no extra atom, only oxygen.
