Pure & Raw Foods

About Our Raw Foods

Every dish at our café is made from scratch. Our menu is raw (not heated over 105°F) with a few exceptions: we steam cook our organic quinoa, organic beans, and wild rice. We make all of our own organic, raw, vegan desserts without dairy, flour, eggs, trans fats, refined sugars or bad cholesterol.

Raw plant food is the most natural food available to us. Today’s research suggests that it important to add more raw foods into our daily diet. It is recommended that we consume at least nine daily servings of fruits and vegetables for optimal health. A raw food diet consists of foods such as vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds, nuts, and beans that have not been heated above 105° F. Preparing raw food uses methods such as sprouting, dehydrating, blending, juicing, and fermenting. Cooking destroys enzymes that are essential to human health; without those enzymes, we are not getting the full, life-supporting benefits of our food.

Cooking foods can diminish nutritional value. For example, the cancer-fighting compounds in broccoli, sulforaphanes, are greatly reduced when broccoli is cooked. Certain vitamins, such as vitamin C and foliate, are destroyed by heat. So whether 30% or 90% raw, the bottom line is that we can all benefit from adding more living foods into our diet. At Pure Juice Café, we hope to make it easy for you by making most of our options 100% raw – and nothing but delicious. We use the healthiest and most flavorful ingredients nature has provided us in all of our wonderful menu items.

Is it Organic?

We truly strive to use only organic produce whenever possible. Sourcing ingredients locally, ideally direct from small farms, is also important to us. To keep our costs reasonable, some of the farms we support are not certified organic, but grow without the use of commercial pesticides or fertilizers. Please see a Daily Produce Board that lists the daily organic produce selection as well as all of our organic pantry ingredients.

Allergy Warning

Nut Allergy Notice: While peanuts and other tree nuts are not a key ingredient in our products, our food is made in the same area as the menu items containing various nuts. Though best practices are used in the preparation, inadvertent cross-contamination may occur. If you have a nut allergy, please let us know.

Bee Pollen Notice

If you know you allergic to bee stings, it is best to stay away from bee pollen.
