A simple machine inserted into the juice manufacturing process to remove sugar
Better Juice’s solution uses natural enzymes in non-GMO microorganisms to convert sugars in juice to non-digestible compounds, such as dietary fibers. The product removes all sugars – namely sucrose, fructose and glucose – from all types of fruit juice, regardless of its sugar composition.
This process does not affect juice smell or taste, except for reducing the sweetness. And, manufacturers can tailor their processes to select the amount of sugar they would like to remove.
Better Juice is a patent-pending system that appends one short, simple pass-through step to the juice-making process. The Better Juice continuous-flow column contains immobilized non-GMO microorganisms. When the juice passes through the column, the enzymes within the microorganisms bio-convert juice sugars to healthy dietary fibers and non-digestible sugars. This natural fermentation-free process occurs without adding or removing ingredients.
The column can produce high volumes of juice: 1000X liters of juice per 1X-liter column.
