The only ingredient is "Carrot Juice".

Is this Paleo?

Here is some nutritional info on it.

Again, I'm highly allergic, so it's not that. I'd rather blow my sugar on booze and...chocolate but that's me.

A lot of people here hate on agave. Yeah, it's all-natural and low-glycemic... because it's almost pure fructose!

Is it pasteurized?

honestly, you can get a pretty damn good juicer -- one that will leave the pulp/fiber in the juice -- for about $35. And carrots are cheap. If you need juice, juice your own

I guess it's as paleo as V8.

I would not consume for two reasons:

(1) Worst tag line ever -- You???ll get all the sweet flavor and antioxidant Vitamin A you love about carrots, without all that pesky chewing -- I'll keep chewing my food thank you

(2) Owned by Campbell Soup Company and I boycott all Campbell Soup Company products (including the aforementioned V8) due to their proactive funding and campaigning against GMO labeling.

Technically, all it's ingredients are paleo-friendly: it's just juiced carrots.

Ideologically, not really: chew your food, don't drink it!

However, there are plenty of reasons not to buy Bolthouse products, including their donations to the Alliance Defense Fund (alongside Blackwater) back in 2008.

I'm not a huge fan of juices but being that it really is ONLY carrots, it's a good choice if you're going to buy juice.

Personally, when I'm sick, I love their C-Boost juice (which means I buy it maybe twice a year).

You'd be better off eating carrots but if it's gotta be juice, I like Bolthouse (be aware their other products may contain whey or soy).

Also, AGAVE (which most people don't care about but I'm deathly allergic to it, as in it's a trip to hospital, so ya know, be careful about their other things).

ex: LOW-FAT MILK, FILTERED WATER, AGAVE NECTAR, CANE SUGAR, WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, SOY PROTEIN ISOLATE, COCOA POWDER, NATURAL FLAVORS, DIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, ACACIA GUM, GELLAN GUM, ASCORBIC ACID, CARRAGEENAN, VITAMIN A (PALMITATE), VITAMIN B1 (THIAMIN MONONITRATE), VITAMIN B2 (RIBOFLAVIN), VITAMIN B3 (NIACINAMIDE), VITAMIN B5 (CALCIUM PENTOTHENATE), VITAMIN B6 (PYRIDOXINE HCL), VITAMIN B7 (BIOTIN), VITAMIN B9 (FOLIC ACID), VITAMIN B12 (CYANOCOBALAMIN), VITAMIN D3 (CHOLECALCIFEROL), VITAMIN E (D-ALPHA TOCOPHERYL), CALCIUM (TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE), PHOSPHORUS (TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, MAGNESIUM PHOSPHATE), MAGNESIUM (MAGNESIUM PHOSPHATE), CHROMIUM (CHROMIUM CHLORIDE), IODINE (POTASSIUM IODIDE), IRON (FERRIC ORTHOPHOSPHATE), ZINC (ZINC OXIDE), COPPER (COPPER GLUCONATE).

They most likely add some sort of preservative to increase its shelf life, but other than that yes. Depends how strict you want to be.

An alternative would be to get a juicer and make your own carrot juice. In the long run it'd be cheaper and you would know exactly what you're drinking. Plus you could make all sorts of other juices.

As far as I know, Bolthouse products are all pasteurized (which means it is heated). We all know that when you cook things, it destroys many of the bioavailability of the nutrients compared with fresh vegetables. Buy a juicer if you want the benefits of juicing and drink it immediately after you juice it. I have juiced for many years and made extra for later, so I would only have to clean up one time. This did not work since the bioavailability of the nutrients start to oxidize. You will really notice it if you drink your own prepared juice the following day. As far as Bolthouse, L. Pasteur was in the 19th Century so I think he missed Paleo by a few thousand years. :)
