Juiceproducer's guide to buying a juicer

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BUYING A JUICER WHY JUICE? THE 15 MINUTE NUTRIENT EXPRESS Many of us have impaired digestion which reduces our body's ability to absorb nutrients from vegetables. Fresh juices go directly into your bloodstream and are therefore considered a 15 minute nutrient express to health. Unfortunately store bought juices contain virtually no nutrients due to the pasteurisation process. ENJOY A WIDE VARIETY Many of us eat the same vegetables and fruits every day or worse, don't even eat any on a regular basis! With juicing, you can enjoy a wide variety of vegetables that you don't enjoy eating whole. Juicing is also the perfect way to consume the recommended daily serving of vegetables. INCREDIBLE HEALTH BENEFITS After regularly consuming freshly pressed vegetable juices, which are highly alkalising, you will experience improved energy levels, digestion and mental clarity, clearer skin and an overall sense of wellbeing.

COLD PRESS JUICERS These machines operate via a masticating (chewing) or cold press method to produce a superior juice to their centrifugal counterparts. In contrast to the rough extraction and high speeds of centrifugal juicers, cold press juicers operate at lower speeds and gently compress fruit and vegetables to 'squeeze' out their juice. PROS• i • CONS • • Higher initial cost. • Longer food preparation, as smaller food pieces are required • Well-suited to juicing leafy greens, grasses, sprouts and herbs. • Higher juice yield. • Juice lasts longer with enzyme integrity keeping for up to 72 hours. • Lower speeds means less heat is generated, preserving more nutrients and enzymes. • Minimal juice separation and foaming. • Some models offer other food. for their narrow chutes. • Slightly higher pulp in juice. processing functions, such as being able to make nut milk, nut butter, sorbet, pasta and ice cream. • Pressing action is quiet.
