Centrifugal versus Living Juicers
You may have had fresh juice before – but was it ALIVE?
Conventional juicers (centrifugal) destroy precious enzymes
- Blades spin up to 3,000 revs per minute, causing friction heat which destroys Vitamin C and precious enzymes
- Blades grate produce into tiny particles exposing them to air and degrading their nutrient value.
- Juice is extracted by centrifugal action. This pumps air through produce, incurring premature oxidisation
- Can’t juice wheatgrass. Can’t do leafy greens
- Can’t process nuts, sauces or frozen fruits
- Very messy and difficult to clean
- Discharged pulp still very wet
- The auger turns slowly at 75 - 160 revs a minute
- Uses a crushing and squeezing action, like cold pressing. This doesn’t destroy the enzymes through heating
- Very quiet
- Easy to clean
- Juices wheatgrass AND fruit and veggies
- Efficient juicing = dry pulp. No waste
- All-round food processor: Also makes nut butters, sorbets, frozen ice-cream, hummus, baby food, pesto and pasta
