NICE AND SLOW

Food & Drink - - TREND SPOTTING -

The cold-pressed juice craze can now be en­joyed at home with the next gen­er­a­tion of juicers. In­stead of pul­ver­iz­ing pro­duce through a fast mov­ing blade, slow (a.k.a. mas­ti­cat­ing) juicers crush, squeeze and strain. This process yields up to 10 per­cent more juice, and be­cause there is no heat build-up, it won’t de­stroy any of the nu­tri­ents or en­zymes. Yes, these juicers are slower than the tra­di­tional cen­trifu­gal juicer, but they’re also a lot qui­eter. Ai­cok (from $149.99, ama­zon.ca) makes a few pop­u­lar mod­els, and Bre­ville just in­tro­duced The Big Squeeze Slow Juicer ($599.99, the­bay.com).

FOR: Health nuts and any­one on a plant­based diet.
