How to Make Cold-Pressed Orange Juice or Pomegranate Juice

  • by Charlie Wettlaufer

Follow these 6 steps to make cold-pressed orange juice or pomegranate juice using the Goodnature X-1:

  1. Wash fruit in cold water with your produce wash of choice, let air dry.
  2. Cut each piece of fruit in half. Do not grind.
  3. Prepare your press by opening it just enough that 1-2 pieces of fruit will fit in the gap between the press plates (see videos for example).
  4. Place the fruit in the press.
  5. Press slowly and keep at full pressure until the juice flows to a slow drip.
  6. Bottle and refrigerate immediately.

Q: What yield should be expected?

A: For each large orange or pomegranate, you should produce around 6-8 oz of juice.

Q: Will the juice taste bitter because of the skin and hair?

A: No, the juice should taste nice and sweet. Using this method of cutting the fruit in half (not grinding), we are only allowing a minimal amount of oil from the rind to make it into the juice. If the juice tastes bitter it is most likely because you used unripe / bitter fruit.

I’ve been around juicing all my life. My Dad built his first hydraulic juice press in 1976 and founded the company Goodnature Products, Inc. I have incredible memories of having “cider parties” when we would invite all the people in our rural neighborhood over to make apple juice. To this day, when I taste apple juice made on a Goodnature press, a rush of nostalgia runs through my body.

I pride myself on guiding our clients into the world of cold-pressed juice and showing them how much fun this industry can be. I love talking business, technology, and marketing.
