Masticating or centrifugal juicer?
There are so many nutrients in our fruits and vegetables, and, for me at least, it is almost impossible to eat 3 carrots, 2 apples, 1 celery and 1 avocado at one meal. This is why this method of squeezing all juice out of them is so loved today by everybody.
Technology is developing fast and while few years ago, the centrifugal way of juicing was the only one, now we also have the masticating method. Though it seems a more primitive method, nutritionists say it is a better way of preserving all nutrients from fruits and vegetables.
Here are the main differences of the two.
To me it is obvious that the masticating juicer is the best, because it preserves more from the nutrients. Yet, some people say the juice extracted with a masticating juicer is devoid of fiber. Our body will absorbe it very quickly leading to sugar spikes in our blood.
With centrifugal juicers, the juice will still contain a certain degree of fiber, avoiding blood sugar spikes. Nevertheless this amount of fiber is still really small, at least compared to only blended fruits.
Whatever your choice is, the number 1 bestseller for each type is:
masticating juicer: Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer – Black and Chrome at $237.80 on Amazon.
centrifugal juicer: Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain 700-Watt Juice Extractor at $99.95 on Amazon.
Choose whatever suits you, but remember to always help your body with a glass of fresh juice.
The unprocessed way of eating vegetables and fruits, brings you the most benefits!
