None of their juices or aloe products contain preservatives -- "never had preservatives -- never will". Lakewood does not and never has used preservatives in any of their juices. In fact, Lakewood pioneered the modern bottling technique of adding lemon juice to pure aloe. This technique protects the integrity of the aloe while retaining the maximum amount of natural polysaccharides… without using any preservatives.
No Animal Derivatives or By-Products
Lakewood confirms that no animal products, derivatives, or animal by-products are used in any form in Lakewood organic fruit or vegetable juices- except for Lakewood Organic Lemon-Ginger Echinacea which contains honey. Lakewood concurs with The Vegan Society understanding - the word ‘animal’ refers to the entire Animal Kingdom, that is all (non-human) vertebrates and all multicellular invertebrates.
What is Biodynamic?
Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming that emphasizes the holistic development and interrelationships of the soil, plants and animals as a self-sustaining system. One of the first modern ecological farming systems, it emphasizes a sustainable approach to agriculture. Biodynamic has much in common with other organic approaches - it emphasizes the use of manures and composts and excludes the use of artificial chemicals on soil and plants. Methods unique to the biodynamic approach include its treatment of animals, crops, and soil as a single ecosystem.
The principles of Biodynamic Agriculture were developed by Dr. Rudolf Steiner in Germany in 1924. Dr. Steiner is credited with establishing the fundamentals after being approached by a group of local farmers concerned with the rapidly deteriorating vitality of crop and animal health on their farms. Today, Biodynamic agriculture has grown into a worldwide system represented in more than 50 countries.
How much nutrition is lost during pasteurization of fruit and vegetable juices?
Almost none. Fruit and vegetable juices contain a wide range of Micro-Nutrients including Vitamins, Minerals and Amino Acids. The only nutrient that is sensitive to pasteurization is Vitamin C. Pasteurization will cause no more than a 10% loss in vitamin C. Note: A typical serving of fruit juice containing Vitamin C provides a substantial amount toward the recommended daily allowance for vitamin C. Therefore, a 10% loss of Vitamin C is of extremely minimal consequence while the benefits of pasteurization are substantial. Also note: The Nutrition Information stated on the bottle label is based upon analysis of the juice after pasteurization.
Occasionally some bottles of Lakewood juice will leave a stain on the inside of the bottle. Why does this happen?
During the manufacturing process of glass bottles, the interior of the bottle will occasionally remain slightly porous. When this occurs, color pigments (known as Anthocyanins) from the fruits or vegetables can become lodged in the microscopic pores of the glass, thus staining the inside of the bottle. There are no health concerns related to these products. In fact, the intense color pigmentation is indicative of a very high level of Anti-Oxidant activity. This staining could be controlled by the use of an artificial stabilizer- however, Lakewood chooses not to use artificial ingredients in their juices.
