It’s no contest, but you really ought to choose between masticating and centrifugal juicers

July 28, 2017


Each type of juicer has its own specific functions and to that end, special purposes. So neither the masticating nor the centrifugal juicer is a wrong turn for the first time juicer. What does become an issue is what the juicer -or should that be, oh really guys, it is really tough to distinguish, the juice maker, as in you, not the machine – has in mind to achieve from a health and nutrition point of view. If you, the juice maker, are just okay to be cool and casual then you’re probably going to be A okay with a centrifugal juicer.

If you are one of those who’ve managed to put together enough information in your VeggieFiles and you’ve become wholly health conscious, you’ll be more interested in retaining the services of the masticating juicer. Because this is the juicer that is going to retain all those necessary ingredients – minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, nutrients – that helps you to optimize your health and cleanse your body when you start thinking of utilizing your personalized VeggieFiles for detox research and use. This is a field that requires extensive reading before it is attempted.

At the very best, all good and in the interests of retaining and improving your good health, a three day detox schedule, say, could be undertaken. But medical files say that you should always consult with your GP before undergoing such a program, just to make sure. And do not be surprised if your doctor tells you that you do not need to go on a detox and suggests a healthier and more practical alternative. Anyway, your slow chewing (masticating) juicer feeds your fruits and vegetables through a slow chute. Here the food is crushed, pressed and squeezed to separate as much juice as possible from the food’s pulp.

Your centrifugal juicer, on the other hand will be using exactly that; centrifugal force to extract the juice. When all fruits and vegetables are slipped into the machine, they are cut finely and then spun at pretty high speeds. The spinning causes the fruit’s pulp to the canister’s walls, leaving the juice to ooze out nicely through a mesh filter thus producing a smooth liquefied juice, as desired. Centrifugal juicers, however, are ideal for the juicing beginners. They are also lighter on the pocket. And they also make very little mess, leaving efficient and rush users with little left to clean.  

But these juicers, because of its speed, tend to make a lot of noise. The slower operating masticators, on the other hand, make little to no noise. From a health and nutrition point of view (it was mentioned) the masticator juices do not allow for the possibility of oxidation in the fruit and vegetables once juiced. Quality through taste and rich colors, believe it or not, important ingredients for top form nutrition, is enhanced. The only way you are going to know which juicer is made for you is to closely examine your personal files.
