How To Choose The Best Juicer For Best Juicing Experience

Juicing fruits and vegetables is widely considered a healthy habit. This because juicing offers many health benefits including a faster and more efficient way to absorb the nutrients naturally found in fruits and vegetables. If you do not traditionally consume many fruits and vegetables, implementing juicing into your life style can be an interesting and different approach to increasing consumption of these important foods for a good health.

Thus to be able to achieve the best juicing experience, it is necessary to have the right toll. For that, there are many different types of juices available on the market, each serving different functions and different preferences. Here are the three main types of juices with their respective advantages and disadvantages.

Centrifugal Juicers: The most common type of juice available on the market. It often presents an upright and cylindrical shape and extract juice from fruits and vegetables by grating them into tiny pieces. Because centrifugal juicers use a sieve to ‘spin’ the juice out of the pulp, that makes them faster when making juice, delivering convenience for the user. Also they feature a large ‘mouth’ so you don’t have to cut fruits and vegetables as much. And that means less preparation work. The big disadvantage of centrifugal juicers is that they do not perform well when juicing leafy green. So if you are thinking about making green juices they do not make a good option for you.

Masticating Juicers: Masticating juicers are highly known for their ability to distribute the juice and extracts the pulp into separate containers. When compared to centrifugal juicers, they do a much better work at juicing leafy greens and vegetables, and produce a drier pulp, which means more nutrients are extracted. In addition, masticating juicers are more durable and come with longer warranties.

Masticating juicers can also be used to prepare ice cream, fruit sorbet, sauces, baby food and nut butters. On the other hand, these juicers feature smaller ‘mouths’ meaning you will have to cut and chop of fruits and vegetables when juicing. Although it might take longer to make juices with these machines, the result is a cleaner and crisper tasting juice full of nutrients.

Triturating Juicers: Also known as twin gear juicers, these juicers work similarly to masticating juicers but their motor runs slower, preserving maximum nutrients and promoting efficient juicing. Provided with two interlocking ‘screws’ that grind, crush and chew the ingredients in order to extract the juice, triturating juicers are able to extract the maximum amount of juice and nutrients making them the most efficient juicers. Like masticating juicers, triturating juicers can make nut butters, fruit sorbet, sauces, pasta and baby food. The down side of these juicers is that they are high-end machines and cost more. Also they are not as quick and easy to use like the other two models and some force is required to push things into the twisting gear.

Since each person has its own preferences there is no single perfect juicer on the market. So, before you pick a model take in consideration your needs for a juicer.

    There have always been lots of srdieps in the autumn. This is why Halloween parties always had spider webs as decorations. I have enjoyed watching the swallows at the entrance to the harbor of late. They are the only birds I have observed swooping in near the oak trees and their moths in the afternoons when it is warm enough for the moths to be active. Seems like the moths would be dry and stick in the throat (pluh-pluh), but maybe the swallows, catching them fast on the wing, end up just swallowing them before they can decide they don’t like the dry taste. I dunno, sounds not too scientific, but I just thought of this as I was typing.
