Raw Jūce to Open in Boca Raton: It's a Raw Food Revolution

Raw Jūce
Raw Jūce will open in Boca Raton in September.
Raw foodism is the new way to eat. From vegetarians to vegans to now this -- eating only raw, uncooked foods, just the way nature intended.

Is it really better than heated, pasteurized, and processed? Just ask Boca Raton resident Barry Rabkin, one of the founders -- and also the source of inspiration -- for Raw Jūce, a new juice and smoothie bar set to open next month.

For most, a raw food diet relies only on uncooked, unprocessed, and often organic foods, including a selection of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouted vegetables or whole grains. Although there are numerous variations of this diet, one fact remains: You can't heat food above 115 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it one of the hardest diets to follow. The best way to incorporate it all: juicing.

And in case you've been in a junk-food-fortified stupor, the Raw Jūce mission is to educate you on the benefits of juicing and make it easy to adopt a healthier lifestyle with fresh-pressed, convenient bottled juices. Made daily, each one of Raw Jūce's signature cold-pressed juices will be prepared using juicers that maximize nutritional density and ensure maximum vitamin and mineral yield. How? By cold-pressing fruits and vegetables, a method that delivers long-lasting bioavailability -- and the best possible flavor.

Rabkin told Clean Plate Charlie he first learned about juicing the hard way: while fighting a battle against thyroid cancer -- one that he believes he has won thanks to a diet of cold-pressed juices and raw foods. Rabkin wanted to share what he learned about the benefits of a raw food diet with others. Alongside partners Steve Shaffer and fellow Boca Raton resident Jeff Levine -- also president and CEO of Florida-based Salad Creations -- he is sharing this life-changing experience with the world starting with the company's first location in Boca's Glades Plaza.
