How To Do Bulk Juicing

As part of a new protocol I’m following, I’m doing a whole lot of serious juicing. Soon after starting SCD I did some juicing (see here for info about juicing on SCD) because I couldn’t tolerate many vegetables or fruit. It was nice to have a refreshing raw vegetable taste after all the soups and stews. I was only drinking about 4-6 ounces at a time and not every day. The GAPS diet recommends juicing a few cups every day right from the intro stages. I never really adopted this practice since by the time I found GAPS I was already feeling quite a lot better and could tolerate some vegetables. Now, in order to get as many nutrients as possible I’m trying to drink a lot of juice.

Since I’m at work all week and can’t possibly go through the process of juicing and cleaning up multiple times a day, I’m preparing all my juices on Sundays. Freshly pressed juice does not last that long, even in the fridge, without a bit of help. I have been storing the juice in mason jars that are vacuum sealed, which removes the air and keeps the juice fresh longer. This way the juice will keep for a week or more. I prepare the juices in one day and all week I can just grab a jar out of the fridge and bring some with me to work.

Step 1 – Grind Vegetables & Fruit

Food Grinder

I use my KitchenAid Stand Mixer with the Food Grinder attachment to grind up vegetables and fruit to a wet pulp. Any food grinder or even a blender like the Vitamix can be used for this step. I keep a juicing or nut milk bag and large measuring cup underneath to catch the pulp & juice.

Step 2 – Press out the Juice

Juice Press

I place the bag into a juice press and the measuring cup below to catch the juice. The hydraulic press gets a lot more juice out of the pulp than any juicer will.

Step 3 – Vacuum Sealing

Vacuum Sealer

The juice is poured into 250ml mason jars and then vacuum sealed. I use the FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer with the Jar Sealer attachment. This step removes all the air from the jar so that the juice will stay fresh for up to a week in the fridge if unopened.

And after a few hours of that, I have all my juice ready for the week!

Fridge full of juices

Ann Marie of Cheeseslave.com said she used to ferment her fresh juices to help keep them longer when she was doing GAPS. Just put a bit of kefir of whey and leave it to sit out for a few hours before transferring to the fridge.

This technique certainly helps make juicing easier!

  1. Ooo, that’s interesting! We had tried juicing in big batches for a while when we were starting GAPS (I’ll admit that I slacked off, I hate cleaning the juicer) but I had stopped. I was frustrated at how my juicer didn’t seem to get as much as it could out of the pulp, and I had never even heard of a juice press like that!

    I’m going to start that up again!

  2. Ahhh, and then I just followed the link to the juice press. Pricey! I’m sure it’s worth it in the long run, but that’s a lot upfront~!

  3. @Cara Yeah I had a juicer similar to yours and it was great for 1 or 2 cups every now and then. But for big batches it was so tiring. And the pulp I was removing from the juicer was so wet, it definitely wasn’t getting all the juice out. A juice press is worth it. I wonder if you could even make one, you just need the hydraulic jack (off an old car? lol). If you do just grind and then wring it out of the nut milk bag by hand, you would probably still get more than a regular juicer.

  4. I’ll have to see about getting a nut milk bag and trying that! Have you had experience with a Champion Juicer? A little less expensive than your press, but I’ve heard good things about them.

  5. Is it possible to leave a link to the juice recipes you make? I would like to try some of those!

  6. @Cara I was recommended the Champion Juicer by the health food store owner who ended up selling me the press. He highly recommends it. That plus the vacuum sealer would be a lot better than using a regular juicer. Nut milk bags are great to have, or many layers of cheesecloth can work too.

    @Cheryl Rector I’ll see if I can find a link to the recipes, if not I’ll post some up. The orange is just plain carrot juice. I also do carrot apple, and some mixed green juices.

  7. I loved the vacuum sealed jars idea!
    I juiced and blended cabbage, beets, kale, carrots, celery and bell peppers the other day. I am currently fermenting them juice and fiber in 1 gallon jars on top of the fridge. Can’t wait until it’s done. 🙂

  8. @Angela B Do you drink the juice with fiber in it? I’ve never been able to do that as it always gives me an upset stomach. Maybe fermented it would be better though.

  9. I LOVE this idea! I’m wondering if this technique (the vacuum sealing) would work with green smoothies as well?

  10. It would probably work with anything mostly liquid stored in a mason jar. You can also vacuum seal dry food in bags/plastic.

    Thing is, juicing is a more laborious project than making smoothies, so it’s a huge convenience to be able to make them last longer. A smoothie is a bit easier with just a blender to clean up.

  11. I was juicing for awhile too but got sick of cleaning the juicer! 🙂 I heard Jordin Rubin speak a couple months ago and he mentioned he does bulk juicing and puts a small bit of honey in to preserve it.

    And I should totally get a jar sealer for my vacuum sealer! Love that tip!!

  12. Hi Kat, I tried juicing but I feel like I need the fiber as the juices gave me a sugar rush and then I was still hungry afterwards. i juiced celery, cucumber, carrots, beets, and apples. I would also add some spinach. Now I’m making green smoothies with my Vitamix.

  13. @Betty When I first did juicing, I did small amounts and always had them with meals. I couldn’t tolerate the fiber at all, but having them with a meal helped keep my blood sugar under control. You could also try adding some raw egg yolks, yogurt or kefir to the juices.

  14. Hi Kat, How long will my juice stay fresh if i just put in a jar and keep it in fridge without using this vaccum sealer. I just want to keep it fresh for 24 hours. Any suggestions?

  15. @Sal Hi, I would suggest filling a jar until it’s spilling out and then putting the lid on tight. This minimizes the contact with air. There will still be air mixed in with the juice (most juicers end up giving a ‘frothy’ juice) so it might not keep a full 24 hours.

  16. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
