Our juices are…
A family recipe. Our juice is a delicious blend of USA grown organic Hamlin and Valencia oranges developed over four generations. The Hamlin orange was Uncle Matt’s grandfather’s favorite orange because of its high vitamin C content and dynamic, robust flavor. He would squeeze a glass every morning before he rode the groves. The Valencia orange is Florida’s most famous variety, known for its deep orange color and sweet juice. When you blend these two together you get a dynamite fresh squeezed taste reminiscent of a roadside stand.
100% pure organic fruit. With the spread of Citrus Greening Disease, we’ve unfortunately seen about a 30% reduction in our recent 2013-2014 crop. This has forced us to alter our production procedures. We are now having to supplement our U.S. orange juice with organic supply from Mexico. It’s the first time in our 15 year history that we’ve had to take action like this. Because we, along with the entire Florida citrus industry, have been affected by citrus greening disease, and because of the recent freezes to California citrus, we must go outside the U.S. for additional orange juice supply. Rest assured our Mexican partners are USDA certified and must legally adhere to the same strict USDA standards that we abide by at Uncle Matt’s Organic. However, Uncle Matt’s Organic remains committed to local sourcing and still uses a vast majority of USA-sourced oranges for our delicious organic OJ. Our goal is still to source all USA oranges and our OJ will return as soon as conditions allow.
Soft squeezed for maximum flavor. We squeeze every piece of fruit using the FMC premium juice machines. These machines are set for optimum flavor by reducing the average pressure while squeezing. This helps reduce the potential for any bitterness from the peel, and keeps our juice tasting fresh.
Organically grown. All of our fruit is grown using USDA certified organic methods. Our family’s philosophy rests on building a healthy soil, which in turn builds a healthy tree and great tasting fruit. Farming without the use of harmful pesticides is better for you and the environment…your tastebuds will agree.
No added flavor packets. Our juice is pure and natural without any added flavor, flavor packets, or peel oil. Did you know many brands must add peel oil or flavor to help boost their taste? We wait to harvest when the brix (farmer jargon for sugar) is high and the acid is low, guaranteeing a deliciously smooth, sweet taste.
• BPA Free. We care about the health of customers and the environment. Our bottles are PET #1, not 3, 6, or 7. PET #1 is the most recyclable form of plastic and the safest for food and juices. It also does not contain the harmful and dangerous chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA), like some other plastics.
