Clean Juice is an account of the love affair of a couple with fruits and organic greens, transforming them into juices, smoothies and other products for a ‘healthy body and strong spirit’.
Clean Juice is a trade name embracing food products that are derived from a healthy and organic source. The shelves of today’s supermarkets are loaded with plentiful organic products and have become a health fad with many. However, their source of origin is not always authentic and one cannot be sure enough to trust your money with. Yet, in the US alone, 39.1 billion have been spent on organic produce in the year 2014 with the sales increasing by more than 11% from 2014-2015.
People have their individual reasons to opt for organic produce. Some would take this option for health reasons while others are more environment conscious and animal-friendly. For a produce to be labeled as organic, it must fulfill certain criteria
- Organic farming methods
- Free from artificial chemicals
- Free from any hormones or antibiotics
- Free from Genetically Modified Organism
- Free from any additives, sweeteners, flavors, coloring, preservatives and Monosodium Glutamate
Organic foods are said to be more nutrient rich, with high levels of vitamins, antioxidants, and low nitrates. The following review will analyze Clean Juice with respect to its authenticity as being organic and the benefits attached.
Clean Juice was an initiative taken by Landon and Kate Eckles, a couple who wanted to settle down with a firm career base. They were both inspired by their enthusiasm for juices and smoothies and opened up a juice bar in Birkdale Village, on June 5, 2015. Ever since that day, the couple has embarked on a journey they love and working arduously to make millions around them healthy.
Clean Juice represents not only juices, smoothies and protein drinks but offers healthy snacking options as bites and Acai bowls. The range of products include
- Acai bowls
- Protein smoothies
The Acai bowls are a blend of different fruits and berries for a loaded anti-oxidant experience. The Acai berry is the star of these bowls, which are touted as a superfood, with more anti-oxidant power than its other sister berries. It is also known as an aid to weight loss but research work in this context is quite lacking. Although said to be enriched with anti-oxidants, the immune and energy boosting power of Acai fruit do not supersede its counterparts. The different bowls have inspired names as
Berry bowl with strawberries, blueberries, goji berries and granola
Beach bowl with additions of pineapple and coconut
Green bowl with honey, bananas, green leafs as spinach and kale, matcha and almond milk
Nutty bowl with granola, strawberries, seasonal fruits, almond milk, cocoa and maple syrup
Pitaya bowl with the dragon fruit pitaya, mango, banana, almond milk, granola, coconut, Chia seeds and goji berries (does not contain Acai)
The bites by Clean Juice are the oats bowl, the power oats bowl with the addition of fruit, the avocado, and the almond toasts.
The juice category includes
The wake up one a blend of orange, lemon, and ginger
The protection one with spinach, pineapple, and cucumber
The glow with spinach, kale, chard, apple and cucumber
The energy one is a blend of beet, apple, orange, celery, carrot and ginger
The daily one with carrot, apple, ginger, cucumber, and lemon
The hardcore one with spinach, kale, celery, cucumber and lemon
The immunity one with orange, carrot, pineapple, turmeric and lemon
The detoxifying one with beet, apple, celery, cucumber and ginger
The protein smoothies have five different varieties with blends of a variant of fruits and vegetables. These include the double one, the chocolate, intense, youthful, recovery, mango, and cream.
The smoothies include coffee, slushie, healthy heart, remedy, simple, so basic, and tropical varieties. Again, a variety blend of different fruits and vegetables, these smoothies claim to fetch different health benefits.

Our final say on Clean Juice
Juices and smoothies have always been a healthy option to curb unavoidable hunger cravings and a general detox of the body. The benefits are multiplied if the source of the ingredients is organic. We find that the Clean Juice is USDA organic certified with CCOF certification too. Several studies have indicated that the food grown organically is high in anti-oxidants and many micronutrients like Vitamin C, iron and zinc. The anti-oxidant levels can be as high as 69% in organic foods. The nitrates level are 30% lower in the organic yields and pose a lesser risk towards cancer.
Customers reported the product to be devoid of any artificial sweeteners and flavorings that are a plus for Clean Juice. The cold-pressed varieties have a shelf life of few days, meaning the juices do not contain any preservatives too. The website has no details of the nutrient values of individual products, only the ingredients are mentioned.
We could not find any negative remarks on the taste of Clean Juice, on the other hand, customers overall reported a pleasant experience out of every product.
The customers have given a great review on the retail outlets of Clean Juice as well as the services rendered there. The ambiance of the outlets is also reported to be pleasant, with the juices and smoothies prepared there and then, preserving the freshness and originality of the products, that is why it is called ‘Clean Juice’.
The community for organic foods is rising day by day and so is the business of ‘Clean Juice’, with four corporate locations, 50 franchise units across eight states to be opened up soon.
The conclusion on Clean Juice is ‘it is good to go’ so next time you are nearby any of their outlets, grab one for yourself.
