Frequently Asked Questions
Rus Organic currently offers 2 day delivery time period for any deliveries in Mumbai, Pune, and Goa. You can also select if youd prefer a later day and time frame for when you want your products delivered.
Rus Organic is 100% Indian Organic and USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC. We are certified by Ecocert India. :
We believe that certified organic produce is the best choice for the health and safety of you and our planet.
SUPERIOR NUTRITION: Organic produce contains a nutrient density that is between 30% and 40 % higher than conventional produce.
SAFER: Non GMO, Pesticide and Chemical free - you consume nearly 3-4 pounds of food everyday and the average indian consumes approximately 2200 calories a day. Processed, calorie- dense foods adds up to four pounds quicker than whole, nutrient-dense food. Consuming the same amount of conventional produce would expose you to a toxic level of pesticides, making the less nutritious, chemical food you consume less effective and more exposed to toxins and pesticides.
PLANET FRIENDLY: The philosophy of organic food production maintains principles of biodiversity, ecological balance, sustainability, natural plant fertilization, natural pest management, and soil integrity. With our world facing the toughest ecological time yet, we need to make every decision we do reflect a better future. We do not use any soap or any sort of chemicals to clean our environments; everything is completely organically cleaned with no harm done to our produce, products or surroundings. We also ensure that our leftover produce or pulp is reused in other means in efforts to have less of an impact on our environment.
SUPPORT MAKE IN INDIA: We work directly with organic farmers with no middle men making sure every rupee goes directly to them. Without the use of middle men and huge companies creating profits for themselves, but less to no profits for the farmer, we've helped enable our unsung heroes of the nation that want to feed our country better, healthy and nutritious food.
Rus Organic is COLD PRESSED:
Rus Orgnaic uses a cold pressed method that is proven to yield 3-5x more nutrients than other methods. Slow pressing eliminates heat from the juicing process and decreases oxygenation in order to create better tasting, more nutritionally beneficial juices! This is different from conventional juicing methods (centrifugal) which move very quickly, leave much of the nutrients behind in the pulp, generate heat from high speed motors and introduce oxygen into the juice, all of which diminish it's nutritional profile. This is also different from the regular juices you'd find in stores which are either concentrate with extreme amounts of sugar, chemicals, toxins, and less than 10% of juice or juice companies that use heating methods, as those methods kill all the nutrients and vitamins in the juice making it pointless to consume. The cold pressed method used by Rus delivers maximum enzymes, vitamins and antioxidants through delicious tasting juice.
QUALITY: Our cold pressing process creates a smooth, pulp-free, vibrant and delicious tasting juice.
NUTRITION: Cold pressing is proven to yield 3-5x more nutrients than other methods; juice is extracted from the pulp with the most minimal oxidation.
TASTE: Cold pressing allows for maximum enzyme retention, creating a juice abundant in healthy nutrients your body can readily use.
Project Juice is Simple & Convenient:

We spent 2 years in research and development in our own production kitchen and consulting with the best food and diet scientists in order to guarantee we are offering the most nutritionally balanced recipes that taste great! Our efforts are all blended in the goodness of Rus.
We pride ourselves on being completely Made in India. Our mission was to create something which helped the community from the source to the consumer. We source all of our produce from local farmers who only practice sustainable organic farming methods. We also help other farmers convert their lands to fit the needs for organic farming. Sourcing locally and organic not only ensures the freshest, most flavorful product, but also supports the environment, our future, and our beautiful country.

For those with nut allergies, we offer a variety of alternatives! However, please be advised that our juices are manufactured using equipment that also processes nuts. If there are any other ingredients that you are allergic to, please consult us so that we can recommend the best solution for you. If you have a severe allergy to any of our ingredients, there is a risk for cross-contamination.
Absolutely. Cold-pressed juice is a great addition to a daily routine and is an excellent alternative to sugary drinks or heat-pasteurized juices, which are void of nutrition. These juices are an excellent way to get your children into drinking the real deal and not processed "fake" foods that provide no taste, health benefits or natural goodness.

So are juices 100% organic, 100% of the time?
When it comes to our cold-pressed juices, we go to great lengths to source 100% organic produce 100% of the time.We create most of our ingredients in house, such as our activated charcoal, moringa powder, etc to ensure that it is completely 100% organic.
Our juices are living food. We use a High Pressure Processing System which stagnates the growth of bacteria and degradation process. This process generally extends the juice shelf life from a few days to a minimum of 28 days. The shelf life of completely organic, natural juices can alter depending on their makeup and the ph levels of the produce itself. For example, carrot has a higher ph level compared to orange; therefore, our products with orange may have a longer shelf life than our products with carrot. We do not add anything to our products and ensure that we are completely clean and free from any chemicals, additives, preservatives or anything else that would dilute your juice.
Juice from your local juice guy or cafe is most likely made with a centrifugal juicer, which calls for immediate consumption due to the pulp remaining in the juice as well as the heat and oxygen exposure during the juicing process. Rus Organic juices are made using a superior cold pressed juicer that eliminates nutrient damaging heat and oxygen from the juicing process and yields a smooth, pulp free juice that is extremely rich in enzymes, antioxidants and vitamins. Still - even cold pressed juice is subject to nutrient degradation in a short time due to yeast, mold and bacteria that is present in all juice. To short circuit these life shortening and nutrient depleting organisms, our juices undergo a cold pressure treatment immediately after being pressed. This High Pressure Process (HPP) is an innovative method that uses pressure, not heat, to eliminate spoilage causing bacteria. Using the cold pressed method in combination with cold pressure, guarantees that through our juices, you are receiving the maximum nutritional value from your living juice and can have absolute confidence in its safety, purity and quality.
Other terms for traditional "heat" pasteurization you may see on labels such as "flash" or "gently pasteurized" refer to the use of thermal technology that essentially cooks juice by exposing it to high temperatures in order to achieve microbial inactivation and, in doing so, also kills off vitamins, minerals and live enzymes.
HPP is an external process. The raw, final product remains untouched. After our juice is bottled, the bottles are placed into a pressure chamber filled with cool water for approximately 60 to 350 seconds, where they are subjected to elevated pressures (the equivalent of being submerged 20 miles beneath the ocean floor) from all directions to the outside of the bottle, starving off oxygen that in turn inactivates harmful, pathogenic bacteria. without a loss of sensory of quality or nutritional value.
Rus Organic has performed extensive independent research and outside testing in order to verify the effects of HPP on our juice. The comparative analysis of our juice before and after HPP validated that juices retained vitamins and kept enzymes intact. Equally important, the tests also confirmed that no bacteria grew to dangerous levels as it could have in juice that had not undergone the HPP process. Our shelf life studies have been sent to third party labs that have extensively tested all aspects of the juice to ensure that the shelf life mentioned on our bottles are correct and valid to the juice contents. This is also why some juices may not have a long shelf life compared to other juices in the Rus Organic family. Rus Organic always recommend drinking our juice as quickly as possible to maximize nutritional benefits because the reality is that all raw juice and other living foods slowly die.
Juices need to be refrigerated immediately at a temperature between 4 C to 8C upon receipt to remain properly temperature controlled. If juices do not remain cold (and are left out), they will begin to ferment and rapidly lose nutritional value as well as taste!
