I make my juice, put it in mason jars, pop it in the freezer for about 40 minutes to get it very cold, and then put it in a thermos that I have also put in the freezer for the same amount of time and it stays good for almost 24 hours. I think you lose some nutritional value but then its better than not juicing at all. Mine doesn't turn color which is a sure sign its bad. Just make sure its stored in a container that does not let light in and keep it cold is what I have read. You may want to check out books by the "Juice Lady".
Hope this helps.

Make sure to use a small glass container, just big enough to hold the juice. The trick is to keep the air out so fill the container full leaving not much room at the top. Air kills the enzymes in the juice so once you open the container, use all of the juice. You can juice for the whole day but it is better if it is fresh.

I do the following to reduce/slow down oxidation:
- Store in dark, vacuum sealed container.
- Store no longer than 8 hours.
- Juice 1/4 - 1/2 lemon to slow oxidation

I agree with what everyone has said. And it's a good tip about adding a little lemon --it acts like a preservative. I think that if you must, it's better to do it the night before as it's better than nothing.....

I am a very busy women. Old juice is better than no juice. I juice for 1-2 days at a time. Not the recommended route but this is what I have to do. Yes I add lemon or lime. I do keep it refrigerated in an airtight container. Juices with cucumbers and tomatoes I only drink fresh they don't keep well. Mine turns a little different color thats because its a centrifugal juicer and it oxidizes. Yes apples turn brown after they cut but you can still eat them. Smell it taste it if its good go for it. My husband swears it tastes better the second day.
Enjoy. There is a great juicing thread under the fasting section..(Favorite Juices While Fasting) ***GREAT THREAD***

I just found out that if your keep your juice out of light (in the dark) and in a very cold place, it will last much longer.
If you have a fast juicer, it oxidize and it doesn't last as long as a slow RPM juicer.
I make my juice in the morning, i put it in a cooler with an ice pack and then put it in the fridge at work. It is fine and still taste fresh.
I prefer drinking it right of way but you need to do what works for you!
