Biotta Juices, an Organic, Non-GMO, and Vegan juice company, has created several different unique cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks to satisfy anyone on those hot summer days. When I checked out the Biotta website, I was shocked and pleased by the selection of juices offered. Biota was founded in Switzerland in 1931 by Dr. Hugo Brandenburger. It has stayed dedicated to its original goal of quality juice from vegetables and fruits. Its first line of Biota juices was launched in 1957. Over this time, Biotta has continued to farm over 1,700 acres of chemical, fertilizer, and toxic-free land.
Along with three generations of family farmers, Biotta has established reliable and scientific organic growing techniques, protecting the natural wholesomeness and taste of all ingredients. Biotta juices use only natural and physical processing methods as opposed to commonly used chemical methods. Production routines at Biotta have a direct impact on the quality of the juices: the fewer processing steps, the higher the nutritional value.
You can see more about its history, guiding principles, quality production, environment and certifications on its website. It is quite impressive. Plus, they have more delicious recipes.
I had the Tart Cherry and the Cranberry juice to try, so those are the recipes I will share with you today. These are very simple to make.
