Juicers to create juice and smoothie goodness
Juicers allow you to easily extract the juice from whole fruits and veggies. If you're not a big fan of eating fruit and veg, juicers provide an alternative method to get your recommended six to eight servings a day.Different types of juicers
Multi function juicers that prepare whole fruits in minutes feature patented feed tubes and filters. The Breville Juice Fountain is a complete extraction system that boasts micro mesh filters that extract up to 20 % more vitamins from the fresh produce.
Electric cold press juicers are available in a variety of styles and designs. Models that boast slow juice extraction offer a higher juice yield and the smoothest possible texture. The cold press juicers extract juice via squeezing and crushing, and the fine filter screen produces pulp free juice.
Manual juicers are available in a selection of designs. The heavy duty stainless steel manual extractor has a sturdy base, a strainer set, and a long pull down handle. Juice is collected in a glass positioned underneath the strainer. Electric citrus presses are an alternative option.
Portable mini juicers feature a stainless steel stirring blade inside the cylindrical plastic and silicone travel cup. Standard capacity is 380 mL.The benefits of using juicers
Juicing has become a popular way of ensuring that you get your recommended daily quota of fruit and vegetable goodness. Less energy is required to digest the produce as a liquid.
Using juicers can also help to protect against a range of conditions related to acidic imbalances, including heart and kidney disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
When using juicers, it's best to drink your freshly prepared juices as soon as they are pressed. Once the juice is exposed to air it begins to oxidise, and this compromises its nutritional value. Storing freshly pressed juices in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed glass container will help to slow down the oxidisation process.
To maximise nutrient absorption, it's also a good idea to drink juice on an empty stomach, or at least an hour before eating a meal.
