Its weight is Be gentle with your juicer. How important is wheatgrass in a healthy diet, and how important is it for a machine that can juice wheatgrass? If you want to juice mostly leafy greens then Omega would be better. I have never used the nutribullet but it looks pretty neat and very powerful. Typically, fruits and vegetables that contain higher levels of sugar will taste better and be more palatable.
Benefits of Vegetable Juicing
My questions to you is — would you agree? You seem to promote the Green Power — any reason why? Kurt — I really like both of them, and you will see that I promote them both on this page, it is just the price range is not realistic for everyone.
Hello, I just purchased the juice extractor by ge it is a two speed watt juicer. I am new to this, will this machine do what is needed?
Thanks for your time. Hi Leah, it is not a juice extractor that I have used first hand, but I see a few people on youtube have been using it successfully, so it looks like it does the job! Any advice on the other Breville juicers?
Hi Kim, TO be honest with you, I think the Breville company makes the best centrifugal juicer, and I would definitely by the Breville compact juice fountain rather than the Jack Lalanne Juicer.
While my Jack Lalanne juicer has done well, there has been enough people complaining that their motor burns out, not a complaint I have seen with the Breville machines. In fact I may have to adjust this page to reflect this information.
Hi, i currently own a breville centrifugal juicer, that i want to replace with a vitamix blender due to the benefit of getting the pulp. So after reading this interesting article i am confused. If you want the benefit of the pulp and its rich fiber content then you definitely want to go with a vitamix-blender. It had great reviews, comparable to the much pricier Breville. I love the juicer, it puts out a great amount of juice. Yay for a good price to have really good health benefits!
Wondering if you knew how significant the nutrient loss through oxidation is if I juice in the morning and consume it 5 hours later. Which one is better or do you have another reference. Thank you for you help. I would like to buy a centrifugal juice extractor. Can you give your opinion for these models: If you have another model to suggest,please do. Hi,pls i want to start a natural juice making kitchen in my country with fruits like oranges,apple,water lemons,etc.
What kind of juice extractor should i go based on the durability,speed, less noise and more nutitious juice for my customers. Can the single auger and twin gear machines be used instead of a vitamix, so long as they have the homogenizing function?
I have been thinking about getting a vitamix for some time, to make smoothies, nut milks and to blend things more thoroughly than my food processor. Seems like a single auger juicer may be easier to clean than a vitamix.
I think I understand what you mean! Do not buy the Jack Lalane. I have one and the piece that blade screws onto is made of plastic and it broke. We tried to glue it together so I would not have to buy a new one and it worked one more time and now its broke again and it can not be fixed. Of course there is a 10 year warranty but that is on the motor not the plastic piece that is attached to the motor well, I can buy the part I need because they sell it but the part must be the entire motor.
After researching this I found that many many people have had this issue with their Jack Lalane Juicer. So I have decided not to buy the part and instead find me a better product. Do your research this is a great investment but like any investment it must be researched for a better outcome.. Hey i was thinking about buying the Jack Lallane Powerjuicer. Would it be a complete waste being that the nutrient, antioxidant and enzymes are very low? Should I hold out for a more effective juicer?
The Jack LaLanne Power Juicer is a centrifugal style juicer machine as are all the breville juicer machines. Centrifugal juicer machines still create very nutritious drinks, it is just that masticating juicers and triturating juicers create even more nutritious drinks, especially when it comes to antioxidants.
My very first juicer was a Jack LaLanne Juicer, but if I knew then what I know now, then I would hold out for a masticating machine, but all the same I was still enjoying healthy juice with the Jack LaLanne! What about the Ninja Kitchen System ? I saw it on an infomercial and it seemed to be quite loud but it does total jucing.
Blenders also make awesome and healthy drinks, but I am only reviewing juicer machines on this page. I was not aware of the differences in juicers, nor had I even heard of a triturating juicer before. I have an old school Jack LaLanne Junior and need an upgrade, so your webite has proven quite helpful.
I am new to juicing and want to make a purchase. The Green Power Juicer is a high-quality juicing machine. Check out this link to learn more about Juicing vs Blending. Hello Darren and Veronica, Thank you for taking your time to help other people get educated about juicing.
Your website is great. I am very new to this concept and I would like to permanently incorporate juicing into my lifestyle for weigh loss and over-all health. But I have also read of the virtues of wheatgrass and that I should have a machine that handles it, and apparently the Breville does not. How important is wheatgrass in a healthy diet, and how important is it for a machine that can juice wheatgrass?
Also, is there any thoughts that you may have regarding the intense speed of this machine rpm and the warning that high speed creates heat and therefore kills some of the benefits of the juice? Thank you for any thoughts you may have to guide me and many others through this confusing maze. I am glad you brought up these points because they are a source of confusion for those new to juicing or buying their first juice extractor.
The high speed of the Breville Juice Fountain and all centrifugal based juice extractors does create heat that will kill some nutrition. However, juice is so nutritious that even with some nutrients destroyed there is still a plethora of nutrients left over. So the juice created by these machines is still very beneficial, no doubt about it.
However, as you stated the Breville and all centrifugal juicers cannot juice wheatgrass, the mechanism used and the speed that they juice at cannot extract the juice from something as thin as wheatgrass. They can extract some juice from some thicker leaves like that of kale, spinach, etc, but are not so effective at this. These centrifugal machines are best used for solid items like apples, carrots etc.
If you want to juice all sorts of fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens, wheatgrass and even herbs then a masticating or triturating juice extractor is the way to go. So they do produce more nutritious juice. They are a level up from centrifugal machines. Wheatgrass is not by any means essential to a diet, you can get a wonderful range of antioxidants and other nutrients by juicing a variety of fruits and veggies. Thank you for your quick and informative reply.
I am amazed at how many choices there are when it comes to juicers. I can explain in detail the anatomy of the human ear, and the differences between a defense and a , but I am awash in confusion when it comes to the complexities of the juicer market.
You provide a tremendous service for all of us trying to live a healthier lifestyle through juicing. Thank you again for taking your time to provide this service. I watched a youtube. That fact and your comments have me rethinking my choice for a juicer. Can the masticating and triturating machines deal easily with beets and carrots and ginger and things like that? I would prefer to make an investment in something that would be quiet, easy to clean, and as inclusive of the many varieties of fruits and vegetables as possible.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Yep, the Breville is noisy, a little bit like kick starting a motorcycle, but it is super fast. It is a great way to wake the kids up. It is a great machine, and uses magnets and ionizing technology to bring more alkalinity to the juice, which reduces oxidation and increases the shelf-life of the juice.
While this and other triturating machines juice beets, carrots, and ginger effectively, producing higher juice yields and nutritional value than both masticating and centrifugal juicer machines, it is harder work to use the triturating machines. You need to use a bit of muscle to push the tougher vegetables into the twin gears, a little less force is needed for masticating juicers, and less still for centrifugal machines.
The Green power Kempo comes with a fruit attachment, for juicing softer fruits, which it does fine. You can also make nut butters, baby food, healthy sorbets and pasta with it too. So it does juice the greatest range of fruits and vegetables, including the thin stuff like wheatgrass and even herbs.
The noise level is considerably less than that of the centrifugal machines. I also find the triturating machines easier to clean than the centrifugal machines since there are no serrated edges. The metal filter baskets in centrifugal machines also need a bit of a scrub.
Triturating machines wash down easier. I just want to thank you again for all your help with my education about juicers. I decided to buy the Omega VRT, and used it for the first time tonight.
It worked very well. People with blood sugar problems or sugar related illnesses should avoid juicing. If this is you, you must talk to your doctor before you add juicing to your diet. If juicing represents a radical shift in your diet, there will be an adjustment period.
Let me explain more of this part of juicing basics. When you start loading your body up with fresh fruit and vegetable juice, your body will start eliminating a variety of toxins and waste matter. During this process of detoxification, you may experience mild nausea. Hang in there — this is the natural process of your body as it gets healthier.
Please note that if these symptoms last longer than a few days, you need to see your doctor as there may be other issues which are arising. How did it feel when you stopped drinking coffee for a few days? You probably got headaches, were jittery, or whatever else. But if you stayed true to your word and stayed off coffee, you would have felt so much better for it. Think of juicing like that. When you start, you might feel a little bad. One of my favorite juices for juicing basics is called the Beet Juice Liver Cleanser.
Within five minutes of drinking it, I can feel it flowing through my body. The first time I felt it happen, my jaw dropped. Drinking your juice fast will impede the absorption of the vitamins and minerals and will take away from the incredible benefits.
Pay attention to the taste. Focus on the life-giving nutrients within. A core part of juicing basics is this: Soon after fruits and vegetables are juiced, they begin the oxidation process.
This process causes the nutritional quality to decline. As such, drink your juice straight after making it to get the most benefit. After about 8 hours the juice will start to taste a little different as it starts to lose its freshness. Personally I aim for drinking a juice from a centrifugal machine within 12 hours provided that I cannot drink it immediately. Provided the juice is stored as outlined above, then the juice will last for up to 48 hours.
Additional Tips and Advice. Mail will not be published required. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. It is very important that juice is stored in an air-tight container. Filling the container to the brim is best, this will reduce any excess air in the vessel. Alternatively there are tools that pump the excess air out of containers.
