Freshii Juice Cleanse – Nutritional Information


When I started the Freshii juice cleanse, I was able to find nutritional information for the salad and three of the four juices on their website. To get the information on the last juice, Carrot Zinger, I emailed eat@freshii.com. They replied in less that 24 hours with the following document.

Freshii Juice Cleanse Nutrition Info

I’ve added up the nutritional info for one day’s worth of the juices and salad in the table below.

I’ve noticed, however, that the nutritional information listed on their website is different than the document the nutritionist at Freshii emailed to me. The table below shows the discrepancies between the total nutrition of the Green Energy juice, Might Detox juice, Red Power juice, and Metaboost Salad. I left the Carrot Zinger out of the comparison since the information wasn’t available on the website. Please feel free to check my math.

Many of the differences shown above are pretty significant. I was especially annoyed that the amount of calories I was consuming was about 300 less than what I thought (1135+estimated 150 calories for the Carrot Zinger juice vs 990 calories).

I replied back to the nutritionist asking why the information she provided and the information on the website varied so much. She answered:

Our menu and recipes are constantly updated, and therefore nutritional information can change. We are currently in the process of re-analyzing and updating our nutritional information for our website. Stay tuned! The nutritional information I sent you is current & updated.

It seems like Freshii is not taking this juice cleanse seriously. They need to provide information, and correct information, so people considering trying it can make an informed decision and do it properly. Handing a customer four numbered juices and a salad is not enough.

I’m a little disappointed in the execution but I do think it is a really great concept for a healthy fast food chain to offer a juice cleanse. The price isn’t bad and it’s waaaaay easier than doing it yourself. Juicing is a ton of work! I hope if they continue to offer the cleanse (it’s currently a promotional item) that they put more time and effort into making information accessible.

I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I'm not sure what changed but i'm glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys. Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!

  1. Thank you Brie for the sharing the above details on nutrition. I am trying to eat more healthy and I found the nutrition information on the Freshii website confusing. I bought my first one day cleanse today and with the info you gave me I was able to figure out weight watchers points. I also bought a few more of the metaboost salads, one for each of the next four days and I am going to add a protein with each one and eat healthy the other meals. This will be a time saver for a working girl that is trying to eat healthy and get a quick healthy meal together. I am disappointed that Freshii is not open on Sunday’s and they had none of the other salads available at what they called “the breakfast hour”. I mentioned to the clerk that this was not helpful for people that would like to pick up a salad to take to work, she did say that she could prepare more metaboost salads for me. Overall I really like their products.

    1. You’re welcome! Glad I could help! I had mixed feelings about the juice cleanse but I’m a huge fan of Freshii and eat lunch there often. As a picky eater that loves healthy food options and is too lazy/busy to make lunch everyday it is very handy to have one nearby the office. That’s weird that they don’t make salads during “breakfast hour.” What location is it? They are a franchise and seem to have some variance between different locations’ menus and procedures.

      1. Madison Wisconsin. It is our first Freshii. Maybe the person was overwhelmed that day???
        I like it overall
