The leading veggie juice extractor has been working hard to get the freshest ingredients just right. Two brand new exciting flavours have been added to the family of veggie extract juices that South Africans, young and old, have come to love – 100% Turmeric Infused Carrot Juice and 100% Zobo (Hibiscus) Infused Beetroot Juice.

100% Turmeric Infused Carrot Juice

By adding fresh turmeric, Rugani has infused a measure of goodness to its original root vegetable responsible for starting the veggie extract revolution – its Rugani carrots, produced on premises by Greenway Farm.

The anti-inflammatory antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of this healing herb have fantastic health benefits* including:

  • Provides pain relief
  • Improves liver function
  • Decreases risk of cancer development
  • Contributes to healthy digestion

100% Zobo Infused Beetroot Juice 

Hibiscus is also known as zobo in West Africa. The calyx (sepals) of the roselle (hibiscus sabdariffa) flower is deep magenta in colour. The hibiscus used in the Rugani juicing process has sweet and tart flavours, similar to cranberry.

Historically, zobo has been used to decrease body temperature, to treat heart disease, to soothe a sore throat and to treat high blood pressure. Recent studies found hibiscus effective in the treatment of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Other benefits** also include:

  • Lowering of blood pressure
  • Supporting healthy cholesterol
  • Aiding in weight loss

Unique agro-processing promotes freshness and no wastage 

Rugani Juice’s secret ingredient is its freshness. Rugani promotes a lifestyle that encapsulates health and nutrition. By believing that it starts with practising sustainable farming through innovation and by marrying man and machine, they ensure the best processes are used to lead the industry.

With their unique agro-processing set-up, they process Rugani Juice where they grow Rugani Carrots. This enables them to produce a superior quality product that is made with vegetables that are harvested at sunrise, juiced and packed by sunset. It also ensures that the production chain is closely monitored as every carrot and beetroot counts.

As the leaders in carrot agriculture in SA they took it upon themselves to innovate in the agro-processing space to transform fresh produce that could have ended up as waste further down the value chain into a highly bio-available nutraceutical that’s accessible and affordable for all South Africans, the rest of the African continent and the world.

On the day of harvest, veggies are transferred from the farm to the juicing facility, where the cell sap is extracted, and the juice is aseptically packaged. The innovative juicing process ruptures 95% of plant cells, making the full nutritional benefits of any veggie more bio-available to your body.  The range of veggie extract juice is particularly high in beta-carotene while no sugar, water or preservatives are added throughout the process and is not made from concentrate.

When opening the specially designed pack, you get to enjoy the freshness, which you can only get from produce that have been harvested at sunrise and sealed away by sunset, as if you had picked it yourself.

The Rugani Juice range now consists of seven refreshing variants, available in 330ml and 750ml packs. It is available at Food Lover’s Market, DisChem and selected Pick ‘n Pay, Checkers and Spar outlets. The products are:
