The Right Way to Find Pure Noni Juice Products
The term pure noni juice refers to pure, unadulterated noni juice that is not mixed or blended with other fruit juices. Also, it must be free of preservatives, added sugars and flavors (both natural and artificial).
For some people, pure noni juice also means that it is not pasteurized; however, most noni juice products on the market, for safety reasons, go through the pasteurization process. Most of the time, pure noni juice is made from organically grown noni that has been allowed to age and ferment naturally for a period of 3-6 months. This makes for a more concentrated juice packed with all the beneficial vitamins and nutrients that the noni fruit contains.
However, there can be significant differences in the overall quality of pure noni juice products. One of the main reasons for this is that a lot depends on the ripeness of the fruit when it was picked. Noni that is harvested prematurely will not ferment properly and its nutrient levels will be lower than noni harvested when fully ripe.
This is important to know, as some manufacturers may harvest the fruit too early, resulting in a substandard product. Remember that the aging process for noni can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months and basically the longer it is allowed to ferment, the more concentrated the final product will be.
Another factor to consider is that while many companies market their products as pure noni juice, for example, as stated on the label, it’s actually not always pure. The product may contain just the pulp or an extract that is then mixed with other juices to give it the appearance of pure noni juice. There are even products available with trace amounts of actual noni juice, yet marketed as pure.
So to be sure you’re buying the purest product available, be sure to read the label very carefully. Check to see if it contains only noni juice and as such is not mixed with other fruit juices.
Also, another indication of quality is to check and see where the juice you are buying originated from. The best places are the Hawaiian islands of Maui, Molokai, Kauai and Oahu, as well as the Marquesas Islands and also Tahiti. This is because the best quality noni grows in the silica-rich volcanic soils that are abundant in these places. Also for health and safety reasons, you’ll want to make sure that any pure noni juice you buy has been pasteurized.
Now, the FDA is not particularly diligent when it comes to evaluating whether products that claim to be pure are actually pure. So you will always have to check this for yourself. Another option, if you have the time and energy, would be to buy some noni fruit and let it ferment at home. This will certainly ensure that you get a pure product. All you have to do is place the noni in a container. The pressure inside the fruit as it ferments will cause the juice to seep out and then collect it. However, you may want to check where the noni fruit you are buying was grown.
In conclusion, it is important to do your homework to ensure that the product you buy is truly pure and not diluted with just a small or inconsequential amount of noni. Always read the label carefully and once you know it’s pure, go ahead and enjoy all the wonderful health benefits that pure noni juice can offer!
