Reconstituted Nopal Cactus (Prickly Pear) Juice Is Another Way Of Saying Watered Down

(*) See References and Disclaimer at the bottom of the page.

Most nopal cactus (prickly pear) juice is reconstituted from nopal cactus (prickly pear) concentrate back into a liquid. This destroys some of the beneficial properties of the nopal cactus (prickly pear) due to the pasteurization and manufacturing processes the ingredients go through. Often flavors and preservatives are added to allow the nopal cactus (prickly pear) juice product to keep from spoiling for indefinite periods once opened.(1), (2), (3), (4),

Manufacturers that supply nopal powder capsules can maintain the integrity of the original nopal cactus. Freeze-drying ensures the manufacturing process does not interfere with the beneficial nutrients of the nopal cactus (prickly pear).(5*) It also side-steps the destructive pasteurization process needed for liquids to ensure they keep for long periods. It makes sense to use a nopal cactus (prickly pear) product that is freeze-dried. It also makes for light and easy shipment to consumers and ensures our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules retain their quality and freshness.(6), (7)
