What’s the difference between our HPP process and the Heat Pasteurisation used by other brands?

Heat Pasteurisation is a method which we just won’t use. It’s a way of breaking down bacteria, but sadly also affects the nutritional value of any fruit and veg as they’re exposed to over 70°C heat. This means their natural taste and nutrients can be affected which is why sometimes these need to be artificially added back in.

Our High-Pressure Processing (HPP) method is a non-thermal preservation method that extends shelf-life by deactivating certain nasties (aka food spoiling organisms) while retaining all the goodness and taste from the fresh fruit and veg we use. It manages this by applying extreme pressure via water to the freshly bottled smoothies (equivalent to six times deeper than the deepest ocean). This leaves the product smelling, looking and tasting as good as homemade.

Are cold-pressed juices and HPP different?

Yes. The term ‘Cold-pressed’ refers to extracting the juice/puree from raw fruit and veg. While the HPP process is all about preservation, extending the shelf-life and deactivating any potentially harmful microorganisms. Our smoothies are made from cold-pressed ingredients and then HPP processed to extend shelf-life. A beautiful and tasty combo.

What does the full range consist of?

Our range consists of three categories of products, smoothies (Super Green, Super Blue, Super Orange and Super Red), protein drinks (Protein Punch and Protein Rise) and 100% juice (Orange Juice and Apple Juice). They can be found either in 250ml or 750ml (apart from the protein drinks only available in 250ml format).

Where can I buy Savsé?

You can add us to your regular grocery shop at Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Co-op, Amazon or Ocado, as well as a variety of other national retailers. Unfortunately, we don’t have a direct home delivery option from our website.

Which Savsé products contain allergens?

We use celery in our Super Orange and Super Red. In our protein smoothie range (Punch and Rise), you’ll find milk deriving the vegetarian whey protein. Our manufacturing sites have an allergen control plan in place to ensure no cross-contamination will occur while our smoothies are being produced. Also, we always recommend that you check out the back of the label to see the full list of ingredients for total transparency.

Do you add sugar?

We have absolutely no added sugar, colours, flavours or preservatives in our products – our juices are as good and nutritious as homemade.

Does your product contain any GMOs?

All of our smoothies are made from ingredients which have not been genetically modified.

Is your packaging BPA-free?

Yes, we use Bisphenol A (BPA) free packaging.

Is your packaging recyclable/made from recycled materials?

The entire packaging (bottle, cap and even label) are recyclable. We are currently working hard to deliver a new packaging made of recycled plastic.

Can I freeze Savsé?

Yes, the bottles can be frozen, but we recommend serving fresh if you can – freezing can affect the colour, texture and the taste of the products. Fresh is always best!

Can I drink Savsé while I am pregnant?

Definitely! Our smoothies are totally safe to drink whilst pregnant.

Who do I contact when I’ve got a product related query or concern?

If you have any product queries, issues or concerns then please use the “contact” section of the website or email hello@savse.co.uk and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Otherwise, please call us on 0207 2336 655.

Where do you source the ingredients from?

We believe our customers deserve the best and freshest ingredients, so we source fruit and vegetables from different regions around the world, ensuring they are in season to get their full natural flavour.

How do I store Savsé?

Savsé must be kept refrigerated below 5 degrees shortly after purchase and can be served straight from the fridge.

How long are the products good for after opening?

They should be consumed within two days after opening. However, they’re so delicious that we doubt you’ll have them lying around for long!

Why does all that fruit and veg only give me 1/5 a day?

One 150ml portion of Savsé can count as one of your 5-a-day. If you drink more through the day, the 150ml portion would still only count as one of your 5-a-day as it is recommended to consume our smoothies and juices in conjunction with a healthy balanced diet, comprising of natural whole foods.
