Did you know that roughly 7.3 million tonnes of food is wasted each and every year in Australia alone?!
According to foodbank.org.au, the average Australian household wastes every fifth shopping bag of food. This works out to be approximately $3,800 of groceries per household per year!
There are so many small changes we can make each and every day to reduce this number. Examples include:
- Writing out a meal plan for the week before heading to the shops and only buying what is needed;
- Eating any leftovers for lunch the next day or freezing for future meals;
- Using wilted vegetables in soups or sauces.
As a company, we want to find ways to make it easier for everyday Aussie's to rectify this issue. One of the ways we do this is by ensuring the pulp extracted by the MOD Cold Press is nice and dry.
Why is this important you ask?
Well, traditional juicers aren't capable of drawing out enough juice from the produce, meaning the pulp left behind is often slimy and wet and therefore, can be tricky to re-use in this form.
MOD's technology is different. It delivers pulp that is super dry, meaning you can re-use it in a variety of ways. Soups, casseroles, sausage rolls, veggie patties or muffins are all great places to start! Anything that calls for finely shredded fruit or veggies, pulp from your juicer can be substituted in!
So, in addition to enjoying the most nutritionally dense, raw juice available, absolutely every part of your fruit and veg ends up being put to a good use. What's not to love about that?
