Juicing Methods Item Number: juicing-methods
Fibers are broken up with a cutting disc or grater while a high speed, centrifugal/circular revolving motion forces the pulp against the wall of the basket and juice is extracted through holes. Centrifugal juicers add oxygen to the juice causing oxidation. Over time, oxidation degrades nutrients. Juice made in a centrifugal juicer should be consumed as soon as it is made.
Fibers are chewed by the machine. Masticating juicers operate at a lower speed which reduces oxidation. This method is ideal for wheat grass and leafy vegetables.
Juice is squeezed from fibers with the force of pressure. Fruit Presses cause the least amount of oxidation. A pulp-free juice is created when strained through a cheese cloth.
