Our Review Factors
When reviewing Raw Pressery Sugarcane Juice, we were looking for freshness and authenticity, taste-wise.
Sugarcane juice is typically always consumed immediately after it is extracted. If stored/consumed later, the beverage turns darker due to oxidation of simple sugars.
So how did Raw Pressery do it? Artificial preservatives? Natural preservatives, what does the brand add?
Fresh, sweet, and juicy. That’s how fluids extracted from cane should smell like.
What was our experience with this packaged variant? Were any stale, rancid, off-putting aromas observed?
Could we sniff other ingredients, flavor enhancers?
Does it have the signature sugarcane flavor, natural and sweet? Does it taste fresh?
Street vendors add a squeeze of lemon that elevates flavor and freshness. Does this packaged variant have the citrusy flavor notes?
3. Other Parameters
What is the sugarcane content in this? Does this use concentrates or pure juice? Are there other ingredients added? What about added flavors, colors, preservatives?
Sugarcane juice turns dark in a couple of minutes as natural sugars oxidize. How does Raw Pressery Sugarcane juice look? Appetizing and fresh or stale and uninviting?
Smooth or full of strands and fibers? Watered down, opaque or something completely unexpected?
Is it leak-proof? How does it fare on the travel-friendliness scale? Sustainable, environment-friendly, does the brand shed light on these aspects?
A 250-ml bottle is priced at Rs 80/-.
It has a six-month shelf life.
Raw Pressery Sugarcane Juice – Detailed Review
Packaging – This is packed securely in a plastic bottle. The labels, both ingredients and nutritional, are clear and easy to read.
Ingredients – The main ingredients are sugarcane juice (94%), lemon juice, antioxidants (vitamin C, INS 300), and INS 224. Very often we have seen vendors add ginger, mint, and lemon to sugarcane juice to enhance the flavor. But it’s not just for that. Lemon juice or vitamin C also helps in naturally averting the oxidation of diphenols to quinones, in turn reducing browning.
Scientifically, citric acid lowers the pH level and imparts acidity to enhance the quality of the final product. However, such anti-browning agents used for short-term preservation impact the flavor and sensory experience too.
Aroma- Despite sugarcane being the primary ingredient, the aroma was predominantly that of lemon juice. It felt citrusy and refreshing but the sweetness of sugarcane, in terms of aroma, was clearly missing.
Flavor- Just like aroma, the taste was led by lemons too. The sweetness is balanced, but this primarily tasted like a lemon-based beverage. Raw Pressery Sugarcane juice had a bolder citrus flavor as compared to the sweet taste of sugarcane. The naturally sweet flavors of sugarcane were exceptionally subtle. This was surprising as the brand boasts of adding 94% sugarcane juice.
- The packaging is travel-friendly.
- The taste and aroma were fresh.
- We missed the authentic sugarcane taste.
- The citrus flavor of lemons was more than we’d like.
