This is true unless you have ran cleanup. If you have run 'nodetool cleanup' then there is data loss.

How can I recover that data? Can I assume they are still in the sstables?

Yes
 
Would doing a sstable2json then reading and reinserting be an optimal solution?

You can just use the sstableloader utility to load them directly.  It will stream the correct portions of the data to all of the appropriate nodes.
