JUICING FOR HEALTH

Vegetable Juicers


There are three basic types of fruit and vegetable juicers and within those, many design variations, so there is certain to be one which will fit into your lifestyle and budget.

All juicers separate the pulp from the juice; the difference is in the way that separation takes place and how much of the vitamin and mineral goodness of the fruit is retained in the juice.

A Twin gear juicer typically extracts the most goodness, and gives the highest juice yield. It will process most fruits and vegetables including wheat grass and other green, leafy vegetables and with the addition of attachments can often be used to make other healthy foods; pasta, peanut butter, and baby food.

A Masticating juicer is not as efficient as a Twin Gear juicer; but the masticating juicer can still handle a wide variety of fruits and vegetables as well as wheatgrass and other leafy greens, and has the advantage of being generally less expensive than the twin gear models.  Some models can also function as a food processor making it easy to create more meals from scratch and avoid the additives in processed foods.

A Centrifugal juicer is the least expensive model of the fruit and vegetable juicer on the market, but has a lower yield from most fruit and doesn’t work very well on leafy green vegetables, wheat grass or herbs. Because of the high speed of these juicers, many consider the juice produced to be of inferior quality to that produced by a twin gear or masticating juicer.
