Picture this: Tei Fu and Oi Lin Chen invite every Sunrider distributor to their home for a Sunrider juice party. Once there, all half a million of us gather around a high-speed juicer as Dr. Chen personally juices the several hundred different varieties of fruits, vegetables, grasses, flowers, roots and herbs all found in Sunrider herb food concentrate formulas. He offers each of us a glass of fresh juice.
Sound implausible? Well it is, sort of. By combining ancient techniques of extraction and concentration with modern technology, this is what Dr. Chen has done with every Sunrider formula. To some people they may appear to be ordinary capsules and beverage powders, but look closer. Inside each Sunrider package and capsule are the components of fresh juice, teeming with enzymatic vitality and super nutrition.
We all know that fresh fruits and vegetables are an important part of our daily diets. And we seem to know the value of drinking juices. We buy lots of it: Juice is big business. But isn’t eating fresh, whole fruits and vegetables enough? Do we need to juice them?
Fruits and vegetables, and all plant life, have two components: The fibers and the juice. The fibers have no nutritional value and act as a carrier for the juice which holds the nutrient complexes. Once a plant is eaten, the body casts off the fiber as waste, and depending on how effectively the body is working, and then uses the nutrients from the juice of the plant to create health and well-being.
The digestive process of separating the nutrition from the fiber involves labor and time. Most fruit is digested rather quickly, but vegetables can take up to hours. Our stressed bodies only have so much energy to go around, and digesting these foods uses up energy.
Since our energy comes from the foods we eat, a portion of the energy from the foods eaten has to be diverted from nourishing us to be used instead as fuel to generate energy. Fresh juice supplies valuable nutrition that is not wasted to fuel its own digestion as it is with whole fruits, vegetables and grasses.
When fruits and vegetables are juiced and we drink the juice while it is still fresh, the body doesn’t have to go through the arduous process of separating the fibers from the juices. Juices are easily assimilated with very little effort on the digestive system. This is especially important if our inner energy is at low ebb. Combined with a diet of whole fruits, vegetables and grains, a wide variety of fruits and vegetables can offer our bodies a full compliment of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates and chlorophyll.
Kick the Can
What about the juices we buy at the store? Canned, bottled and frozen juices are only as good as the fruits and vegetables used in them. The Juicing Book reports that many juice manufacturers import cheap fruit to the United States, which may carry traces of pesticides banned in the U.S. but not abroad. “Florida Squeezed” on the label may mean the fruit is actually from another country and then “squeezed” in Florida.
What’s more, a majority of the juices we buy in the store are made from fruit concentrates and not whole fruit juices. The quality of these juices is limited by the industrial water and other liquids with which they are reconstituted at the factory. In addition, juices often contain artificial colors and flavors, sugar, corn syrup, salt and chemical preservatives. The Juicing Book warns, “It is ironic that many consumers don’t realize many packaged juices are as nutritionally vapid as the soft drinks they would replace."
Let’s say we decide to begin making fresh juices of our own. No matter how thorough we are, our own fresh juices can have limitations. This is just one reason why Sunrider Herb Food Concentrates are a perfect addition to your daily diet of whole foods and juices.
What are some of the limitations our own juice can have? Let’s consider the produce we use to make the juice. Most fruits, vegetables and greens are at their peak nutritional value when they are ripe. But did you know that more than 60 percent of the produce commercially grown in the U.S. is picked several days before it is ripe? The produce is then shipped all over the country and often arrives at its destination – eventually into our shopping carts – days or even weeks old, and yet still not naturally ripe. Modern food science offers us the benefits of fungicides, coolants and chemicals to enhance the appearance and retard spoilage of this produce, but is this really healthy?
Fresh juice is a terrific addition to any diet. But with Sunrider Concentrated Herb Food formulas, the organic purity and quality of fruits and vegetables used are unmatched in the industry. Sunrider maintains full control of quality and purity of each herb used, from the planting, cultivation and harvesting stages through every step of processing to the final testing and encapsulation. No additives, chemicals or preservatives are used at any stage of the production of Sunrider products.
The Science of Juicing
What’s next? Do you know which parts of the plants to juice? Which plants are better blanched or steamed first to receive full nutritional benefit from its juice? Did you pick all the plants at just the right time? Did you know that some plants are at their peak nutritionally when picked before sunrise? This is a lot to remember!
All fruits and vegetables used in “Sunrider concentrated juices” have been harvested at the exact moment of optimum nutrition and prepared according to the precise requirements of each plant.
Time is of the Essence
Once juiced, better drink it quick, because once released from its fibers, juice ferments, spoils and loses valuable nutrients quickly, even when refrigerated.
I juice carrots and a few green vegetables every day. And one thing I am always aware of is how much time it takes to clean the produce, juice it and then clean the juicer. How many of us have the time to do this several times a day?
Sunrider “juice to go” is the optimum in convenient and efficient nutrition, for people “on the go.” Sunrider has done all the work for us!
Most importantly, we eat whole foods and drink fresh juice to hopefully provide our bodies with a full spectrum of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, essential oils, proteins and carbohydrates we require on a daily basis. Do we have enough different kinds of plants to provide this full nutritional spectrum? (It may require several hundred daily.) If we are serious about getting a full compliment of nutrition from our foods and juices every day, we are severely limited by the selection of fruits and vegetables available to us.
The ancient Chinese, who pioneered and perfected the science of juicing and extracting, routinely used hundreds of plants. We choose from maybe 20, and that’s pushing it.
Fresh juice can be an excellent source of nutrients. Sunrider uses several hundred plants in their formulas for a broad and balanced spectrum of nutrient complexes. All formulas are perfectly balanced within themselves, and with all other Sunrider formulas. They mix well with all other foods in our diets.
Juice to Go
Today, Sunrider International is the largest “juice company” in the world. Sunrider extracts and concentrates the fresh, nutrient-packed juice from hundreds of varieties of fruits, vegetables, grasses, flowers, roots and herbs. Because a juice is not concentrated in its liquid form and spoils quickly, Sunrider takes its juice one step further and dissipates the water, thus leaving the fresh juices in a state of enzymatic life and nutrition, without spoilage or having to use preservatives.
The book Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices explains that juices are not a concentrated food. As a matter of fact, they are among the least concentrated of the liquids we drink. As the book explains, a juice becomes concentrated only when “its water content has been dissipated.” Because the water content has been dissipated, this is why Sunrider juices are called herb food concentrates.
How do all these different plants become Sunrider juice? And by what process do they go on to become the highly advanced Sunrider powders and capsules we eat every day?
SELECTION AND CLEANING
The superior quality of Sunrider food formulas begin with the exceptional purity of the raw materials. Sunrider begins with careful selection of the species of the plants and location of its cultivation. Growth is carefully monitored, weak plants are weeded out and the strongest herbs are harvested at the peak of their vitality.
Attention to detail at Sunrider is unmatched by any other company. Some herbs are only at their nutritional peak during the night, and that’s when they are harvested by Sunrider. Once harvested, the herbs are carefully scrutinized, washed and dried.
Sunrider has set the standard for purity and quality of food processing. One example of many is the expansive state-of-art technology used by Sunrider International.
Many people who make fresh juice at home use electric juice extractors like centrifugal or masticating juicers. These machines extract fluid from the fibers of fruits and vegetables by separating the liquid from the pulp at a high speed and discarding the fibers. Some machines mash the produce and then squeeze the juice through a stainless steel screen. Others employ the use of a hydraulic press.
Sunrider has taken these often crude methods for food processing and evolved them into a highly advanced and efficient system of extraction and concentration. Sunrider uses sophisticated machinery custom designed and built in Europe to Sunrider’s exacting specifications.
How efficient are these machines? For typical juice at home, one uses a few pounds of produce to create a glass of juice. Because Sunrider’s processes of concentration are so efficient, six to seven pounds of herb “raw material” are concentrated into one pound of finished product.
Each herb is handled according to specific techniques passed down through generations, and perfected with modern science by Dr. Chen. Some herbs must be slightly cooked, some powdered, and it is crucial to understand which part of each plant is to be used.
Plants and herbs are formulated according to Chen’s own research and knowledge as well as information contained in old and new volumes. Special attention is given to make sure that each formula agrees with the five elements of the Quinary and has the correct balance between Yin and Yang. The individual herbs are then integrated as balanced herb food formulas.
The herbs are liquified to separate the oil-soluble nutrients from the water-soluble nutrients. This allows for more efficient freeze or flow drying of the water-soluble nutrients and assists in the assimilation of nutrient in the body.
Continuous testing at frequent intervals ensures that controlled quantities of nutritional elements go into each batch of formula.
While the formulations are still liquids, the amount of water is reduced and the formulations are either freeze dried or flow dried depending on the requirements of the formula. This concentration guarantees improved efficiency and long term stability without spoilage or loss of nutritional value. What began as six to seven pounds of herbs has now been concentrated into one pound of nutritious herb food powder.
The powder is sprayed with the original oil-soluble nutrients that were previously removed in the process of extraction. This creates granulation of the powder, increasing the benefits of the formula before encapsulation, and allowing the herb foods to stay fresh without preservatives.
Which form should the finished formula take? Some formulas are encapsulated for convenience. Because the formulas consist of granules which dissolve instantly and completely, the capsules can be opened into water for a delightful beverage. For some formulas the concentrated granules themselves are packaged to be mixed directly into liquid, such as NuPlus and Fortune Delight beverage. The granules that form the Calli beverage formula are sprayed onto carrier leaves, and then put into tea bags. Still other formulas are packaged in liquid extract form, such as Suncare, Sunrise, and LiquiFive (which is basically the Quinary, but slightly different formulation).
