“Regardless of what method used to preserve nutrients in a juice, degradation of vitamin C will happen over time. “

Time is the enemy…

 
Regardless of what method used to preserve nutrients in a juice, degradation of vitamin C will happen over time. After 3 weeks the concentration of C-Vitamins falls to 50% in different juices. So there is really no point in having a shelf-life longer than 3 weeks if you’re looking to offer a high-quality juice.
 

Heat even more so…

 
Vitamin C breaks down (Denature) with increased temperature. The negative effect of heat increase significantly at 40°C and even more at a temperature above 76°C.
