FAQ'S

Now that we have introduced Almond Milk and a line up of signature Protein Booster Balls into our menu, we do contain nut based products in store. We also receive some ingredients from manufacturing plants that handle other products containing nuts. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that throughout the production process, cross-contact did not occur before the product reached our stores. We would recommend any of our customers with severe nut allergies to alert our staff prior to ordering. 

Please see our Allergen Guide for further information.

Sugar occurs naturally in all fruits and juices. We have devoted the 'Hardcore' section of our menu to sorbet-free smoothies- we recommend these smoothies for those who are looking to lower their added sugar intake. Another alternative to reducing added sugar intake while still choosing a nutrient-dense option is to try one of our freshly-squeezed juices!

The Booster Juice products that contain caffeine are: The Brazilian Thunder, High Impact Açaí, Matcha Monsoon, Mind Over Matcha, and Spinach Is In It.

Boosters can be thought of like Vitamins. They have 2 - 5 calories in each serving. The only exception to this our Super Boosters, which contain 20 - 110 calories per serving.

Several of our Boosters contain ingredients that are recommended for pregnant women, but not all herbals are suggested to be taken on a consistent basis when pregnant. For example, Ginseng and Gingko Biloba are not generally recommended while pregnant and these are found in our Energy Booster.

Booster Juice’s Whey Protein Powder has one ingredient: Whey Protein Concentrate. Because protein needs vary when you are pregnant or breastfeeding, we recommend that you speak to a Registered Dietitian or your doctor to help determine the type and amount of protein that’s right for you.

 Almost every smoothie at Booster Juice contains 4-5 servings of fruits and/or vegetables. The Hardcore section of our menu offers smoothies that are rich in a variety of both fruits and vegetables. We also recommend trying one of our Freshly Squeezed Juices, as they are a fantastic source of vital nutrients!

Açai has some naturally occurring sugar in the berry and we add a pinch of Organic Cane Sugar to bring out the flavour. Açai has 25% less sugar than Apple Juice and is very Nutrient Dense. The Glycemic Index is Low because of a balanced nutrition profile, including proteins, natural fats, and carbohydrates.

Our Açai has 24mg of naturally occurring caffeine from the Guarana (a seed that grows in the Amazon). The caffeine is equivalent to Iced Tea. In comparison: Snapple Iced Tea (48mg), Soda (30-60mg), Coffee (60-120mg) 8oz Green Tea (30mg).

The Açai berry contains Omega 3, 6, & 9 Fatty Acids – the 'good for you' fats. These are the same fats that are found in Salmon, Cod Liver Oil, Olive Oil and Nuts.

No! Açai grows on the Açai Palm Tree…the same tree they cut down for “Heart of Palm.” Locals make more money harvesting the Açai fruit year after year rather than cutting down their trees for “Heart of Palm” which puts more money in their pocket and helps save the Rainforest. Only cash to the locals will help save the trees.

Our Açai is “Certified Organic” by Quality Assurance International. It is also “Certified Organic” in the United States by the USDA.

Matcha is the oldest variety of shade-grown Japanese green tea, traditionally used in Zen Buddhist ceremonies for over 800 years. Ground into a fine, jade-green powder using granite grinding wheels, Matcha is whisked with water to create a unique, beautiful and richly flavorful drink.

Matcha Green Tea is grown in the Nishio Region in Japan. 

1 cup of Matcha Green Tea has 10-15 times the nutrients of Regular Green Tea.

Regular green tea is steeped, and when you steep tea you looke %80-90 of the nutrients in it. That's because most of the vitamins in tea are not water soluble. But with Matcha Green Tea, the tea leaves are ground up and consumed as a whole. Therefore you get all the nutritional benefits Matcha has to offer!

Matcha Green Tea is organic and certified by CFIA, USDA and European Union.

Matcha Green Tea contains the highest antioxidant (ORAC) count compared to all known fruits and vegetables. On a per gram basis, Matcha Green Tea is the most powerful antioxidant in the world!

There are only 4 calories in each serving of Matcha Green Tea.

1 Gram = 1 Serving

Yes the Matcha is the same. This is our proprietary blend of Matcha Green Tea.

Wheatgrass was first introduced by Ann Wigmore over 40 years ago. By pressing and squeezing the tender young blades of the wheat plant, a dark green juice is extracted which is a great source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll. During the germination and sprouting phase of the young wheatgrass, the stored food in the wheat berry is converted into predigested living food.

In theory, to get the most from vitamins and minerals, a person’s total intake should come in a form that is as close to a natural state as possible. Wheatgrass is a living food at the time of juicing and for a period of 10 to 15 minutes after harvest. Wheatgrass juice is high in Vitamin C, A, B, and E. This green juice has over 90 minerals which are needed to maintain good metabolism. The presence of these alkaline minerals are found in wheatgrass which contains calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron, a mineral essential for transporting oxygen to the lungs. Organic sodium is also found aiding in digestion and regulation of the amount of fluids in the body.

At Booster Juice, we place your health as our #1 priority. Allergens are a serious issue, therefore at Booster Juice we take the following steps to ensure that no cross-contact occurs between our products. A full wash, rinse and sanitize cycle is done for all utensils and blender jars after each use. We also have 2 different colour blender jars in our stores used to blend smoothies. Our clear jars are used for the majority of our smoothies, while our purple tinted jars are used specifically for almond milk smoothies. By separating the jars that are used to make our smoothies, we can ensure that customers who may have a nut allergy can be confident that their smoothie was made in a nut free blender jar.

No- our Frozen Vanilla Yogurt, Greek Yogurt, and Probiotic Yogurt are all gelatin free.

At Booster Juice, we purchase all of our ingredients from government approved, reputable suppliers. Health Canada regulations require milk to be pasteurized and this includes milk that is used for yogurt. Therefore at Booster Juice our milk products including protein powder, frozen yogurt and sorbet are pasteurized. Booster Juice Almond and Coconut Milks are also pasteurized.

Cider and fruit juices are not required by law to be pasteurized, and our fresh juices are not pasteurized.

Sulphites are substances that are naturally found in some foods and the human body. They are also Health Canada approved food additives to help maintain food colour, shelf-life and prevent the growth of fungi or bacteria. Sulphites are also used in the production of some food packaging like cellophane.

For the majority of people sulphites are safe to eat, however, some sulphite-sensitive people may react to sulphites with allergy-like symptoms. Sulphites can trigger asthma and, in very rare cases, anaphylaxis.

In Canada, sulphites must be listed on packaged food labels (except for alcohol). The package ingredient list will say “contains: sulphites” if it contains this ingredient. 

Sulphites are safe for most people. If you have a sulphite sensitivity, carefully read the ingredient list of packaged food products and ask the server in a restaurant every time to avoid a sulphite-related reaction. We recommend any of our customers with allergies to alert our staff prior to ordering. If you have more questions about a sulphite-free diet, contact your doctor or Registered Dietitian.
