Juice of the week


Pomegranate is packed with healthy antioxidants and vitamins. Treating pomegranate juice with juiceCEPT® – lets you extract even more of these health-boosting phytochemicals. Tag along and we show you how – in this juice of the week video we treat pomegranate!

Healthier and fresher pomegranate juice with juiceCEPT®

The pomegranate tree or shrub is a hard-headed one. Extremely long-lived, with some specimens surviving for 200 years. Perhaps the tree’s own ability for longevity has something to do with the many health benefits that the fruits contain.

Pomegranate contains over 100 phytochemicals and has 3 times more antioxidants than red wine and green tea.

Pomegranate juice has long been a popular drink in Europe and the Middle East, nowadays also widely distributed in the United States and Canada.

Global distribution means challenges when it comes to shelf-life, extending it often means pasteurization – giving the juice a longer life span but also destroying much of its rich content. The antioxidants and vitamins are degraded during processing and pasteurization.

Treating pomegranate juice with juiceCEPT® erases this dilemma.

Watch the video with OptiCepts senior process engineer, Ivo Achu Nges, explaining the results made in the lab!

” When treating pomegranate juice with juiceCEPT® we managed to enhance the total amount of polyphenols by 40 %. Moreover – enhanced dissolved sugars (Brix) by about 35 % and increased release of intracellular content or ions. Hence increase the conductivity by over 11 %.”

As shown in the video – treating pomegranate juice with juiceCEPT® had outstanding results.  
  • Enhanced total polyphenols by over 40%.
  • Enhanced dissolved sugars (Brix) by over 35 %
  • Increased release of intracellular content or ions. Hence increased conductivity by over 11 %
  • Advanced ‘redness’ or anthocyanins

Anthocyanins can be a real boost for your health – antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-cancer.
