Juices

Juice is a liquid prepared by squeezing or grinding fruits or vegetables. This liquid is fulfilling, healthy and hydrating, with other good effects as well. Juices are not made by heating the fruit or vegetable. It is considered that heat can destroy the beneficial nutrients of the fruit and vegetables.

Juices can both be sweet and savory.

In Ramadan, when there is a high chance of dehydration, juices come to the rescue to hydrate you and re-energize you for the next long day of fasting.
