Why shots?

Unlike traditional fruits and vegetables, ginger or turmeric root is not easy or practical to consume whole, so drinking the extracted juice is a fun and easy way to receive the nutritional gains from ginger and turmeric.

What ingredients are in your shots?

Our philosophy is rooted in how a few simple ingredients can be so nourishing and healing. Each Monfefo Ginger Shot contains over 4,000 mg of fresh, organic, cold-pressed ginger root juice, with ginger as its first ingredient sourced from biodynamic Peruvian farms. The ginger is simply paired with organic lemon juice and organic honey to create a ginger-first product. Each Monfefo Turmeric Shot contains over 2,000 mg of fresh, organic, cold-pressed turmeric root juice (your daily dose), sustainably sourced from Hawaii and Thailand. We add a touch of organic black pepper in each shot, which allows for curcumin absorption to be elevated by 2000% in the body, paired with organic orange juice, organic lemon juice, and organic agave. To learn more about these powerful ingredients, explore our ginger and turmeric journals.

How are Monfefo shots made?

From root to the bottle, our shots are handcrafted in small batches in our Brooklyn factory. Each batch is made in-house with the highest quality organic produce on the market, prioritizing quality, potency, and sustainability. We support farmers in Peru, Hawaii and Turmeric where our roots come from. We then cold-press these beautiful organic roots using a hydraulic cold-press ensuring we receive as much of the juice from the root as possible. The compost is then collected and delivered to farms in upstate NY and used for the soil. This nutrient rich root juice is then blended with organic citrus juice and a touch of natural sweetener. Finally, we fill all these shots in 2 oz glass bottles and store them in our walk-in fridge until our distributors come and pick them up to get them delivered to you! We have an incredible team that is dedicated to ensuring that every shot that leaves our space is made with detailed attention, care, and love.

Are your shots organic and non-GMO?

Yes! We believe organic produce is the optimal option for the health and safety of the planet. By choosing organic foods, you are voting for that food; You are voting for having food being grown without pesticides, chemical fertilizers or herbicides. These chemicals can not only harm our planet, but also the people working on the farms. Avoiding toxins and heavy metals can optimize one’s life. Let’s vote to bring our planet back into balance, to create an ecosystem that is good for us and for our planet, and to allow for soil integrity, regenerative farming, and biodynamic principles. A cleaner life is a happier one!

Are your shots pasteurized?

Monfefo harnesses the power of light to produce a safe and beneficial shot. Our juice is filtered through an ultraviolet light and then filled into our glass bottles. The light flows through the liquid in a matter of seconds to prevent harmful bacteria like e-coli, salmonella and listeria from being in our juice. This process allows for our juice to remain in its natural state more than most other processing methods. It allows for our juice to never be heated and remain cold-pressed and kissed by the light.In the past, we used to use HPP [ high pressure processing]. This method would apply thousands of pounds of water pressure onto the already packaged bottles. For this method, plastic bottles are used for their flexibility and strength while glass bottles would easily break, which is why most cold-pressed juices are in plastic. In 2020, we made the conscious decision to switch over from single-use plastic to glass bottles for a sustainable and cleaner option for packaging.

How did Monfefo begin?

Monfefo was founded by Justine Monsul in 2014, in her kitchen in Brooklyn, NY. Growing up in New Jersey, Justine's mother Ewa would make her ginger tea with lemon and honey when she was feeling under the weather; it always did the trick. Inspired by how a few simple ingredients can be so healing and nourishing, Justine cultivated Monfefo to aid people in feeling good. The first few batches were made in her kitchen and hand delivered to local delis around the Williamsburg area. After she had about 10 accounts, Monfefo moved into a 400 sqft space in East Williamsburg. Soon afterwards we got our first distributor with a simple handshake deal. The story grows from there.

How are you supporting your mission of sustainability?

Our mission is reflected within our ingredients, our people, and our process: the elements that support and elevate Monfefo's deep rooted intention to consciously and sustainably serve our community. Each of our organic, cold-pressed beverages are handcrafted with the highest quality ginger and turmeric on the market sourced from biodynamic farms. We never add any preservatives, additives, or artificial ingredients and manage the entire creation process in our Brooklyn, NY factory. Each shot is delivered in plastic free packaging, with our glass bottles now accompanied with aluminum closures, screen-printed labels and tamper evident seals made from corn. We are 1% For The Planet certified and plant a tree through One Tree Planted with each product sold online. We are committed to continually becoming more conscious and aware of our planet and ourselves, with open hearts and minds.

My shot tastes different, it’s less spicy or more citrusy.
