FRUITY TALK

Australian T3 - - TECHLIFE -

When one is juic­ing, it’s im­por­tant to know one’s juic­ing lingo

CEN­TRIFU­GAL JUICERS: GOOD THIS, THE MORE POPULAR TYPE OF JUICER, ES­SEN­TIALLY GRATES YOUR FRUIT AND VEG AT HIGH SPEED, THEN BLASTS THE LIQ­UID PART THROUGH A MESH. THEY’RE CHEAP, EF­FEC­TIVE – PAR­TIC­U­LARLY WITH FRUIT AND SOLID VEG­GIES SUCH AS CAR­ROTS – BUT NOISY.

MAS­TI­CAT­ING JUICERS: BET­TER! HOW­EVER, IF YOU’RE SE­RI­OUS ABOUT EX­TRACT­ING FLU­IDS FROM PRO­DUCE, WE STRONGLY REC­OM­MEND A MAS­TI­CAT­ING OR ‘SLOW’ JUICER. TH­ESE USE A HEAVY RO­TAT­ING ‘AUGER’ TO CRUSH FRUIT AND VEG AGAINST A FIL­TER SCREEN. AS A RE­SULT IT’S FAR QUI­ETER THAN A CEN­TRIFU­GAL MA­CHINE, AND WORKS WITH ANY­THING FROM BA­NANAS TO CAR­ROTS TO WHEAT­GRASS. IT’S ALSO SUG­GESTED THAT THE LOWER HEAT IN­VOLVED MEANS THAT MORE NU­TRI­ENTS RE­MAIN IN THE JUICE, THOUGH WE’VE NOT SEEN CON­CLU­SIVE PROOF OF THAT.

…AND THAT’S NOT ALL BY US­ING FIL­TER SCREENS WITH DIF­FER­ENT-SIZED HOLES, SLOW JUICERS CAN CRE­ATE MORE FULL-BOD­IED JUICES, SMOOTH­IES, AND ALSO NUT BUT­TERS AND SOR­BETS, HENCE THE HIGHER PRICE.
